What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your vehicle. Use as much gas as you need and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll receive the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have 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 type of fuel policy should I choose?
Many rental car suppliers offer a variety of fuel policies. However, the stand-out winner is usually full-to-full. It simply means returning the car with the same level of gas as you got it with, so you'll never pay for anyone else's road trips through the Wantagh.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
