Avoid Hidden Costs When Hiring a Car


You need to be very careful about this. Read the fuel policy for your car hire company very thoroughly. Some companies will charge you a refuelling fee if you don’t fill up the car when you drop it off. Make sure you understand the fuel policies to avoid paying extra fees.

Extra Driver

Some car hire companies will charge you extra for each new person that drives the car. You need to ask about this explicitly before renting a car and take the appropriate steps if you want to avoid paying extra.


Some rental companies will charge you extra for toll other related fees even if you don’t incur those fees. You might follow toll free paths only to realise you’re paying your rental company anyway.
