Fuel Up Front

Save time and money on fuel

When you collect your Avis hire car it will have a full tank of petrol. Return it with a full tank after your trip and there’ll be nothing to pay.

To take the hassle out of refuelling, we also offer other fuel options. You can choose Fuel Up Front and order a full tank of petrol or diesel before you go at the average market pump price. 

Fuel Up Front can be added at the counter when collecting the car. 

Read on to see which Avis fuel option works best for you.

Bring Back Full
No charge.

Fuel Up Front
Buy a full tank of fuel upfront – at the average market pump price – so you don’t have to refuel when you return.

Pay On Return
If you haven't got time to refuel and haven’t taken Fuel Up Front, we can do it for you. But this is the most expensive option.

Car Hire with Avis. Avis offers four simple ways to help you fuel your hire car.

The small print

When you pick up your vehicle from an Avis hire station, our rental sales agent will explain the options to you and arrange the one which best suits your requirements.

With Fuel Up Front, no refund is given for any unused fuel. If you return your car with a full or partially full tank you will not be entitled to a refund.

For Pay On Return, the price includes both the cost of the fuel and a re-fuelling service surcharge, but you will only pay for the litres of fuel you use. (Check with a member of staff when collecting your hire car to confirm what the charges will be.)
