The guy from the counter recommended a useless prepaid fuel which basically is a loss for the customer since you can just refill the needed amount rather than pay for the full tank from the beginning. Other than that, the rate was superb, car was clear, Sribeen has been a huge help when I returned the car at the end of my trip.
