|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. 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 pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Several providers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't need to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should get your car with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the rental.
