Refuelling fee in car rental

A refuelling fee is a fee that is charged by many suppliers for refuelling the rental car. This happens when the renter returns the car with less fuel in the tank than agreed in the rental agreement.

For example, Hertz is one car rental supplier that charges a refuelling fee from their customers.

Example sentence(s):
  • If the vehicle is returned with less fuel in the tank than indicated in the rental document, you will have to pay a refuelling fee upon returning the vehicle.
  • The price of the missing fuel and the refuelling fee are deducted from your fuel deposit refund.
