However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Wyoming.

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. Use as much gas as you like and top it off when you return your car. 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 any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel 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 won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you don't have to fill the tank back up when you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you get the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest returning the car topped off. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before you return the car.
