Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find an open gas station near your car rental supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your car. Use as much petrol as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Some rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you collect the car|

We usually recommend that you opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
