We have hired one for mext month and we must fill the petrol back before we return it back at the airport on the last day of our holiday.

Are there petrol stations near to the airport that we can get the fuel on our drive back to the airport?

Yes, there's a 24hr one at the airport.
IIRC it's on the way to the car rental area.

Be careful which pump you go to though - some you have to queue in the shop first and prepay before you take your fuel.

It's on the roundabout as you get back to the airport

I dunno. If they're not they should be, timewasting pieces of carp... Think it's the ones on the left hand side as you pull on to the forecourt...

Mutley would you like any advice on driving a left hand drive car ?
banned#15
which car hire company are you using as most want the car back near empty?

They then do the usual Spanish / Portuguese trick of charging you £100+ for fuel when you pick it up

also, most only offer collision damage waiver but dont make it clear that you still have to pay the excess (up to £2000 e.g. easycar).

from recommendations, maybe even from you, economycarhire.com
they say that we are expected to put the fuel back otherwise we will be charged for fuel used at a higher rate due to admin charge.

the petrol trick

we used argus car hire and stipulated we did not want to pay for fuel on arrival in Spain, where they rip you off for fuel as well.. so we paid for what we used an no more

Good move! They are the best by far (full CDW, EDW) and no rip-off fuel policy

FYI, worst ones are carhire2000, arguscarhire & malagacars
