car hire

We travel to the Algarve a few times a year. Until the last time we travelled in May, we have always hired cars with a full to full fuel policy.

I couldn't find anyone from Faro airport who did full to full, only full to empty. Anyone know a reliable hire company who still operate a full to full fuel policy.

If you book through an agency such as Economy Car Hire or Economy car rentals (there are others) and get a full to empty you can ring and get transferred to a company that does full to full - or similar.

We've done this in the past with no issues - and if we all start to do this then the car hire companies MAY realise that we're onto the money they make from these schemes!

Hello,

This is Kerri from Economy Car Hire.

As this thread is in relation to the Algarve and we were mentioned, I just wanted to clarify that all the suppliers we work with in Portugal offer a Fair Fuel Policy meaning that each of them operates a full/full fuel policy as standard.

Kind regards,

Kerri

I recommend Economy Car Hire too, and can confirm that every car I have ever hired through them is full to full (or empty to empty, or half empty to half empty!)
