Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you want and top it off when you return your car when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. 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 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 supplier to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't have to search for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up before you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should receive your car with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before returning the rental.

If you plan to see all that Westfield and maybe even the rest of Illinois offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Westfield. Go over the fine print to make certain they are truly "unlimited."

Before you get started on your Westfield vacation, make sure you go over a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. You should take time to:
