FUEL POLICY

All prices disclosed in this page are tax included if should be the case. 

Please be aware that fuel is not included in the price you pre-pay at reservation time. 

We propose you to choose amongst the two following services depending on the country where you rent your car :

 1.       Express Fuel service

Express Fuel service enables you to pick up the vehicle with a full tank and return it with the level of fuel you wish so that you do not have to look for a fuel station near the drop-off location and top up the tank when returning the vehicle. Just return the vehicle as it is at Check-in and save time thanks to Express Fuel service!

 The price of the Express Fuel service is determined as follows:

 Cost of the fuel tank of the vehicle + service charge (Express service fee)

 The Fuel Tank cost and the Service Charge (Express service fee)are based on the capacity of the rented vehicle’s tank and the average price of fuel country wide at the time of collection of the vehicle.

You will find in the “Conditions per country” section below the charge applicable in your country of rental. 

Upon return of the vehicle, if there is fuel left in the tank, you will be reimbursed for that fuel based on the average price of the fuel at the time of return. Please note that the service charge( (Express service fee)) is not refundable.

 2.       Full to Full / As Rented Service: 

Our vehicles are rented either with a full tank or with a partially full tank. 

The vehicle must be returned with the same level of fuel as at the collection as mentioned on the Rental Agreement. 

If not, you will be invoiced the cost of missing fuel and a service charge, where applicable. 

The cost of missing fuel is based on the average price of fuel country wide at the time of return. 

The Service charge is a fixed amount which depends on the country of rental. Please find below the charge applicable in your country of rental.
