|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your vehicle. Use as much petrol as you want and top it off when you return your car when you are done. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need.

We usually recommend that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.
