What is the full-to-full policy?

When renting a car, the full-to-full policy means receiving a full tank while committing to return it with the same amount of fuel. Unlike pre-purchase rental, full-to-full car hire includes the price of the fuel in the agreement.

In other words: with full-to-full, you don’t have to pay any extras when picking up the car. Only before you drop off your vehicle, you will have to find the nearest petrol station and pay to refill the tank. With pre-purchase, the car hire company will have to refuel the car for you before you leave. In the latter case, not only will you charged for the petrol, but also for the actual refuelling service - as an additional fee.

What is the advantage of full-to-full car hire?

The biggest advantage of having full-to-full policy is that you don’t pay for fuel that you don’t use. Since the tank will have to be refilled before returning the car, there will be less waste. In addition, you are sure to be paying nothing more than the current pump prices. If you choose pre-purchase, there will always be some fuel left over. So in all, full-to-full policy provides better value.

When is this ‘return as received’ policy better?

It all comes down to the price of fuel. Full-to-full works better for longer trips, since the number of miles and therefore the fuel consumption will be higher. By contrast, booking a full tank for a shorter drive isn’t such an interesting choice. If you want to save even more money, you can choose to hire a diesel car (since they have less waste and diesel is cheaper).
