If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

Most rental car suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We advise returning your car topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
