We only compare 8 seaters that include a fair full to full fuel policy. You will collect the vehicle with a full tank and return it full. A small amount for fuel will be held on your credit card when you collect the vehicle and refunded when you return it with a full tank. Look out for full to empty fuel policies you might see at a lower cost on other websites, full to empty usually comes with some hefty extra fees for fuel, so always check the T&Cs for full to empty rentals.
