Do I have to return the vehicle with a full tank?

Listed below are various options, depending on the local car hire company:

1. Empty to empty - i.e. the fuel tank is empty when the vehicle is collected and is to be returned empty.

2. Full to full - i.e. the tank is full when the vehicle is collected and is to be returned full.

3. Full to empty - i.e. the fuel tank is full when the vehicle is collected and is to be returned empty.
In this case, the full tank of fuel must be paid for in advance, on collection.

Note: The Coverage with refund of Excess including Extra Driver & Full Tank (All-Inclusive Gold) package is only available for bookings in the US and Canada. A full tank of fuel is included with this coverage.

Please note which of the above options is quoted in your car hire company rental contract in order to avoid any extra costs.
