Are there different fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.

You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank
Full to empty (pre-paid)You'll get the car with a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuelYou won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the carThe supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station

What fuel policy do you recommend?

Many rental car suppliers offer a variety of fuel policies. However, the stand-out choice 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 Waves.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited miles is a good choice if you decide to do some sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Waves. You can drive as much as you want and not incur extra charges. Go over your rental agreement to find out if there are mileage restrictions.

Before you drive off

Be sure you check out a few things before you leave the lot. You should take time to:

  • Walk around your vehicle and be sure there is no damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
