For the convenience of our customers, all our vehicles are supplied with a full tank of fuel at the start of the rental. Rental rates do not include the cost of fuel unless expressly stated, so a fuel deposit is taken at the start of the rental which is refunded if the car is returned with a full tank.
However, for rentals of 5 days or more we recommend a fuel purchase option. This gives customers the ability to pay for a full tank of fuel when they collect the vehicle and return the car empty at the end of the rental, rather than worry about finding a garage near the rental location to refuel the vehicle.
The fuel price is calculated at a market competitive rate and varies by make and model of the vehicle rented. The rental location will confirm the cost at the time the vehicle is collected.
The fuel purchase option is also available for other lengths of rental. Please contact the rental location for further details. May 2008
