Full to FullThe tank will be full when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you wish and top it off when you return your car at the end.

Check with the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuelThere will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your carThe supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station

What fuel policy do you recommend?

Know before you go

  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
