Fuel Policy

Should I bring the vehicle back with a full tank of fuel?
Yes. The vehicle will normally be supplied with a full tank of fuel. You must return it to us with the same amount of fuel it had in it when you picked it up usually a full tank as shown on the factory-installed fuel gauge.  We recommend you fill up as close to the return location as you can on the return date, and keep the receipt to show us. If you do not return the vehicle with a full tank and you can not show us a receipt for fuel we will charge you.

Fuel Options

I plan to travel more than 120 kilometres, and want peace of mind, do you have a fuel option for me?
Yes, with Fuel Up Front you pay for a full tank of fuel, based on the manufacturers stated fuel tank capacity for your vehicle plus our costs of refuelling the vehicle for you. Then you just return the vehicle with whatever is left in the tank (even if its virtually empty) so long as the engine still runs.

How do I calculate the cost of Fuel Up Front?
Depending on where you are renting, we charge the average fuel price at the start of your rental period as stated on this EU fuel index http://ec.europa.eu/energy/en/statistics/weekly-oil-bulletin. However, you do not get a refund for any fuel you do not use.

Can I get Fuel up Front at any time?
No, if you want to take advantage of Fuel Up Front, you must ask for it during the booking process or when you pick up the vehicle.

I plan to travel less than 120 kilometres, do I still need to fill up?
Yes, often the fuel gauges stills look full so we ask you to fill up the tank near to the return location and show us a copy of the receipt.  If you do not have time to fill up the tank, or can not show us a receipt, we will apply EZ Fuel to cover our costs of refuelling the vehicle for you.

How much is EZ Fuel?
Depending on where you are renting, you pay of fixed fee of 15.00 Euro.  

What are my options if I do not return the vehicle full and have not bought Fuel up Front?
Pay on Return will apply if you have driven more than 120 kilometres and:

  • Do not buy Fuel Up Front
  • Do not return the vehicle with a full tank

How do I calculate the cost of Pay on Return?
You pay for fuel based on the factory-installed fuel gauge rounded down to the nearest eighth (1/8) of a tank. This is based on the manufacturers stated fuel tank capacity.
We recommend you to fill up as close to the return location as you can. Otherwise we charge the average fuel price at the end of the rental period for Italy as stated on this EU fuel index: http://ec.europa.eu/energy/observatory/oil/bulletin_en.htm. Included a surcharge per liter as indicated on your rental agreement.  If we have to refuel the vehicle, a refueling service fee of EUR 5.00 will be debited. This charge covers our cost of driving to the nearest petrol station at short notice and to restore the inconvenience of the potentially delaying the next customer's rental.


ID Requirements
Do I need to bring proof of identification?
Yes, you must bring:
  • The payment card that was used to make your booking. For some vehicles, two payment cards in your name will be required. One of these must be the payment card used to make your booking.
  • Photo ID featuring a recognisable photo taken in the last 10 years. We will accept your passport or driving licence if it contains a photo, a national identity card or any other form of government issued identification.
  • You may also need to bring proof of where you live. This could include a recent utility bill or bank statement. If your driving licence shows your address we will accept it as proof of your address.
Other requirements
Will I need to give a pre authorisation or pay a security deposit?
Yes, you must give us a pre authorisation on your payment card before we release the vehicle to you. A pre authorisation holds money in your account. 
 
If you wish to pay in cash, we will take a security deposit instead.
 
What do I need to do to give a pre authorisation or security deposit?
You'll need to give us a payment card in your own name that has enough money available on it. 
 
How much is the pre authorisation or security deposit?
The value depends on factors such as the season (high or low season), the length of the rental, the rental location, the rented car group, any ancillaries requested, any recognised discounts.
The value pre-authorised will be automatically calculated by the system using the information provided by the customer.
The calculation will take into account:
1) The estimated vehicle rental price
2) USD 110 (converted to EUR on the check-out date) as the average value of a full tank of fuel
If you have selected our Pay Now option, when booking, the sum you have paid will be deducted from the value to be pre-authorised.
