As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need.

What fuel policy do you recommend?
We usually suggest that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone 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.
Before you drive off
Make sure you check a few items before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Check out the car and make certain there is no damage or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench 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 wipers
