What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to search for an open gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much gas as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||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 the tank empty. Ask 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 bring back the car||You usually pay a higher price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should receive your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Weldon. You can drive wherever you like and not incur additional charges. Read over your rental agreement to discover if there are mileage restrictions.
Before you drive off
Be sure you check a few items before you leave the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around your car and be sure there is no damage or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
