Car rental with prepaid fuel

How does the pre-paid fuel option work?

You can book pre-paid fuel as an add-on to your SIXT car rental either online when making your booking, before picking up the vehicle or at the station. Our pre-paid fuel option gives you the flexibility to return your car on empty. We use local gas station prices in order to calculate the cost of this add-on.  In addition to the added convenience, our customers also receive a discount on gas when choosing this option in advance.  No refunds, however, are given for any unused gas.

What if I don’t add pre-paid fuel to my rental?

Filling up the tank yourself before returning your rental car is always an option. However, if you return your rental car without a full tank, you will be charged for the price of the gas it takes to refill the tank, in addition to a service charge. Selecting our pre-paid gas deal is an easy way to avoid any extra fees.

Electric vehicle charging

The renter is obliged to return the vehicle with the charge level stated on the rental agreement.
If the vehicle is returned with a lower charge level than agreed, Sixt will charge the renter for recharging the vehicle according to the price stated on the rental agreement.
