|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Ask the supplier 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 bring back the car||You usually pay a more expensive rate for a tank upfront then going to a local station|

What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage returning the car topped off. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before you bring your car back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

- Walk around your car and be sure there is no damage or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
