What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you get your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. 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 pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You usually pay more 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 won't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get 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.
