What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your automobile. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. 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. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't be paying for any fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas 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 may not have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you want to explore all that West Harrison and maybe even the rest of Indiana offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Review the fine print to be sure they are truly "unlimited."
Before you leave the lot
Be sure you go over a few items before you leave the lot. It's worth the time to:
- Walk around your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench 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
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new area
