Car Hire

Was wondering if anyone has had problems with fuel issues after hiring from a rental company. Some companies will give you a car with hardly any fuel and some will give you a full tank. my problem has been when i have hired a car with a full tank, on the day of handing back the car i always take it to a garage and fill the tank before its picked up by the rental company, twice now they have tried to charge me extra stating the tank was not full, has anyone had any problems with the same issue

Re: Car Hire

Not had this problem as company I have used always gives you car just about empty and you have to return it that way. What company have you had this problem with?

Re: Car Hire

That's a regular scam,happens with reputable hire car companies in the UK as well,as after you've left the car,they still have your credit card details.
In the summer a UK car magazine ran an article on this subject & one guy said he hired a Nissan Micra,sent it back full but was later charged the equivalent of twice what the cars fuel tank held.

Re: Car Hire

We had the opposite . Hired a car in Teneriffe & only wanted it to go down the road toi cafes,[ elderly relo,s with us ] . I told them I wanted a empty tank as garage was just outside rental office . They insisted I had a full tank and I ended up giving the car back with half a tank of fuel left and no refund . Give me a near empty tank every time . Or one with 2 galls in you pay for in the hire .

Re: Car Hire

The car hire company that I use give you the car with a full tank. They collect me from, and return me to, Dalaman. We fill the tank as we approach Dalaman and I pay.

Simples.

This is a good system . But I wont let any Turkish driver drive me anywhere . I have had too many close shaves with some of them when I used a similar system . Don't get me wrong there are good drivers and there are bad . But sorting out the bad one,s is not something you know in advance .

They do a car hire or transfer service. The drivers are fine.
