Keep in mind, these policies may not provide total coverage, and you'll need to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it is necessary, you can just add it at checkout.
What is the fuel policy for Victoria rental cars?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. 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, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees 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. Check with the rental car 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 might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before 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 collect the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We usually recommend that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several customers all over Victoria. You can cruise wherever you like without incurring extra charges. Make sure to read your rental agreement to find out if there are mileage restrictions.
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Victoria vacation, make sure you go over a few items before you leave the rental lot. It's important to:
- Inspect your vehicle and make certain there is no damage or scratches. If so, write it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
