Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the end of your rental period. 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. If you only use half of a tank, it's only necessary refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Many suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehand||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|

What fuel policy do you recommend?
We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Zealand?
Unlimited miles is a good choice if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Zealand. You can cruise as much as you like and not incur additional charges. Review your policy to find out if there are mileage restrictions.
Know before you go
Be sure you check a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot on your Zealand adventure. You should take time to:
- Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on the paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack 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
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new region
