However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Zug.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.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. Use as much fuel as you like and top it off when you return your car at the rental dealer. 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, 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 pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||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 your vehicle, and you don't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
Most rental car companies provide you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage bringing the car back with a full tank. If you want to save some money, find a gas station before bringing the car rental. 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 Zug?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Zug. You can drive wherever you want and not incur additional charges. Go over your rental agreement to see if there are mileage limitations.
Know before you go
Be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. You should take time to:
- Inspect the car and be sure there is no damage 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 inflated and both the lug wrench and jack 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 windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
