Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will need to find a gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. 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 have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll get the car with a full tank and return the car with the tank empty. Check with the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you return your car||You might pay more for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||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 fuel policy do you recommend?
Many suppliers offer a variety of fuel policies. However, full-to-full is our stand-out winner. You simply bring the car back with the same amount of fuel you got it with. Just be sure you make time to shop for the cheapest gas prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several customers all over Young America. You can cruise wherever you like and not incur additional charges. Make sure to read your policy to find out if there are any limitations.
Know before you go
Be sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect your car and make sure there is no dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it 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
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new area
