|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any gas you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up 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||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you do any serious driving|
What fuel policy should I get?
Most rental car companies give you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise returning it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before returning the vehicle.

Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
