Car Hire Guide

How much will I need to pay for fuel?

The fuel policy is determined by the car rental agent and in most cases also dependent on the rental duration. There are different types of fuel policies and we will clearly state which one applies at the time of booking

The most common fuel policies are:

Pick up full, return empty – This fuel policy type is applicable to rentals of a minimum of 4 days. Your vehicle will be supplied with a full tank of fuel and can be returned empty. On pick-up, the rental agent will charge you for a full tank of fuel. The price per litre charged by the rental agent may be higher than the price at the local service station. Fuel charges are payable at the rental counter. There is no refund for unused fuel.

Pick up full, return full – This fuel policy type is applicable to rentals of 1 to 3 days. Your vehicle will be supplied with a full tank of fuel. To avoid incurring fuel charges you will need to return it full. You may be required to leave a fuel deposit reserved on your credit card that will be released when you return the car full. Missing fuel will be charged on your return. Please note that the price per litre charged by the rental agent may be significantly higher than the price at the local service station. Fuel charges are payable at the rental desk unless otherwise stated.

We recommend checking the policy details during the booking process under Rental Conditions to avoid unexpected charges.
