When hiring a car the vehicle will have one of two fuel policies, they are:
This is our favourite fuel policy! You collect the vehicle with a full tank of fuel and return it full. This means you can pay for your own fuel at whichever fuel station you choose (although you will most likely have to top up at the fuel station closest to the car hire drop off point unless you are carrying a jerry can). Should you return the vehicle without a full tank you will usually per charged at a rate determined by the car hire company.
With a return empty policy you are charged for a full tank of fuel by the hire company (usually at a slightly inflated rate) and return the car empty. Of course, it is quite tricky to return the car with a nearly empty full tank so often it is returned with fuel on board which is a bonus for the hire company as they get ‘free’ fuel back. Often when you see a cheap car hire rate the car will have a return empty policy to counteract the discounted price.

An additional driver waiver is when the car hire company effectively offers you an additional driver on your rental vehicle for free. It is known as a ‘waiver’ as they are waiving the usual charge that they would levy for an additional driver being added to your rental policy.
You will encounter the term ‘waiver’ primarily with rentals in the US and Canada. In europe it will usually be described as ‘Free Additional Driver’
