Can I choose the fuel policy for my car?

Yes, you can choose how to deal with fuel, in an agreement we can indicate any fuel policy you request. The options available include Full – Empty with a refund on unused fuel, Empty – Empty, and Full – Full tank.

In case you choose “Full/Full”, the vehicle will be brought to you when a full tank of fuel, and you’ll be required to return it full. Along these lines, we won’t charge you anything for the fuel.

In case you choose “Full – Empty (Refund)”, you will receive the vehicle with a full tank of fuel and return it empty. On collection, you’ll be required to pay for the full tank and a refueling charge. With this alternative, you don’t need to stress over refilling the tank toward the end of your car rental period. You’ll get a discount for the fuel left in the tank minus the refueling charge which is non-refundable.

If you choose Empty – Empty you will be given a vehicle when the tank is an empty tank with only fuel to take you for something like 10km to the fuel station and you will have to first fuel the vehicle before you continue with the trip, but on returning the vehicle you will need to bring it empty.

How can I pay for my car?

In most cases, there are two main payment choices: Payment on Arrival and Prepaid Bookings.

Payment on Arrival: Here you will need to pay a commitment fee which about 20% of the total amount using a credit card (Visa or Master-card) and the rest of the money is paid on the day you receive the vehicle.

Booking in Advance: in this way, you will call or contact us online after everything is done you will need to pay the full amount of the vehicle through a visa card and all the terms and agreement will be sent to your email and you sign by the day of the arrival you will just get the vehicle and continue with your trip. But however your vehicle is already paid for, the main driver will need to carry a master-card in their name on the collection of the vehicle in order to pick the vehicle.

Where can I check my booking details?

After you have your car rental booking and you have paid the commitment fee, the company will send you a receipt of the money you have paid plus the balance in case it’s there.

How can I modify or cancel my booking?
