    It is a common situation when a renter should pay for refueling of the rental car when he returns it at the counter at some airport with less than a full tank of fuel. And in summer during a busy travel season many of them are often surprised with the price of it.

    But the prices for refueling are not always that shocking. For example, such well-known car hire brands as Alamo Rent a Car, National Rent a Car and Enterprise Rent-A-Car, owned by the St. Louis based Enterprise Holdings, provide more favorable rates than other car rental companies.

    Currently refueling costs from $1.72 to $2.26 per litre at these companies. It depends on how expensive or cheap is fuel at the filling stations situated next to the airport. The price is formed of the local price plus a mark-up, which does not exceed the 50% of it and equals $0.75 per litre at the most.

    National, Alamo and Enterprise fuel policy provides its customers an opportunity to return rental cars with a full tank, pre-pay for it at a discount and to refuel it after they return the vehicle. According to these three car hire brands, they monitor local fuel prices four times a week and adjust their refueling prices according to it, in case they change by 3 cents in either direction.
