Avis Fuel Options
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 offer other fuel options too. You can choose Fuel Up Front and order a discounted tank of petrol or diesel before you go, or take advantage of EZ Fuel, which suits shorter journeys.
Fuel Up Front can be added when you book online. (Once you've selected your vehicle group, you'll be asked to "Choose your extras". Fuel Up Front sits in the "Recommended Extras" box.)
You can also book Fuel Up Front, or add it to an existing booking, by calling our reservations line.
Read on to see which Avis fuel option works best for you.
Fuel options from Avis
Bring Back Full
No charge – even if you took the Fuel Up Front or EZ Fuel options below when you picked up your car.
Fuel Up Front
Buy a full tank of discounted fuel upfront – compared to local fuel stations – so you don’t have to refuel when you return.
Driving for 75 miles (120km) or less? For a pre-paid flat fee, Avis will take care of the refuelling.
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.
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 option which best suits your requirements.
- With Fuel Up Front, no refund is given for any unused fuel unless you Bring Back Full. If you return your car with a 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.)
- With EZ Fuel Avis will refuel your vehicle for only £12 plus VAT if you have travelled 75 miles/120km or less. If you fill up anyway, bring the receipt when you drop the vehicle off and we'll refund this fee.
- Prices quoted are for rentals collected from "Standard" locations. Rentals from "Premium" locations will be higher. Please check the prices during the booking process.
- For rentals in Cyprus and Malta, Fuel Up Front is mandatory. Your vehicle will be supplied with a full tank of fuel at the start of your rental and no refund will be provided for any unused fuel upon return.
