2. Find a Gas Station Close to the Rental Agency Early
This is a common mistake made by both first-time and frequent travelers. The time to locate a gas station to refuel your rental car is before leaving the rental agency. If it is inside of an airport garage, then simply ask the clerk for the closest locations to refuel the car. If your travel schedule after arrival permits, ensure to verify the accessibility of the gas stations with regards to your route back to the rental agency on the scheduled date of return. Many times, the closest gas station may be on the wrong side of the road for your return travel route, and sometimes they might not be open for 24 hour service depending on what location you are flying in or out of for your trip. Taking some time on the front-end of the rental period can help alleviate a significant amount of stress later.
