Am I the only one complaining about the fuel charge for car hire at carcassonne airport. Now if you want to hire a car you must prepay for a full tank of fuel +fees and return car empty.If you return car with fuel in it they will charge you to check it and also charge fees. What was wrong with car leaves airport full and you return car full, no fees.Surely this is breaking the law in France .Now if this was Ryanair doing something like this you all would be complaining. What you flying people think.

Hi,


 


We are flying into Girona airflights a third of Carcassone and car hire about the same. We saved about £450 buy doing this and driving up to Carcassone

 I was stung when booking with firefly - didn't realise till they billed me for a tank refill about a month after I got home. To be fair I had selected the cheapest option when hiring online and didn't pay enough attention to the small print . 


Who did you rent with?  I have used hertz and europcar and refilled myself.   You do have to check when your booking and confirm when you collect the car.  It getting a bit like the booking a cheap airline ticket used to be, you have to pay attention all the time or you will pay for something extra which you didn't need or want :)   


Hertz did try to charge for refill on return on my last vist, even through the car was full and I had checked  when booking that there was an option to return the car with the tank full. The charge was removed when I questioned it.

I hired a car from Limoges airport and all that they asked for was a full tank and the receipt to prove it for the same day...this I did, they fotocopied the receipt and that was it...
