But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Alamo.

Nelson certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Nelson.
