Exceptions


United Kingdom
All vehicles are supplied with a full tank of fuel and it is the customer's responsibility to return the vehicle full or pay for any missing fuel at the end of rental. On rentals of 4 days or longer we recommend that you add the cost of a full tank of fuel to our rental charges at time of pick up. This method eliminates the need for you to refuel the tank prior to returning. The fuel amount charged at time of rental will be based on a market competitive price and the car model rented. We are unable to issue a refund for unused fuel. A fuel deposit is not required.


United States
The fuel level of the vehicle at time of rental will be full, renters may return the vehicle with a full tank of fuel. For your convenience you could select our Gold Package online now which includes 1 tank of fuel included in the online price or choose to pre-pay for a full tank of fuel at the time of rental at the rate provided at the renting location. If the renter selects the Gold Package or the pre-paid fuel option at time of pick up, no refunds will be given for unused fuel. If the renter does not return the vehicle with a full tank of fuel when they have not chosen our Gold Package or pre-paid fuel option, then the renter will be charged to return the fuel tank to full at a rate provided at the location to which the vehicle is returned.
