What is Included

As part of our commitment to provide competitive, honest, fair and transparent pricing for your car hire we have summarised below all items included as part of your rental agreement, and those which are optional and payable on arrival.

All prices are inclusive of VAT/IVA at the prevailing rate (21% in June 2013); to comply with Spanish fiscal law your final invoice will show the tax as a separate amount but the total will be as shown here. If anything is still unclear please do contact us.

Fuel Policy Information

At Drivalia we believe that the fairest and easiest fuel policy if the FULL to FULL option whereby you simply receive the car with a full tank of fuel and return it the same.  In fact, if you book directly with Drivalia you will automatically receive this option. 

We offer two options:

Full to Empty fuel policy (BROKER bookings only)

This option is only available on the lower cost "Basic" packages booked through third party brokers. With the full-empty fuel policy you collect the car with a full tank of fuel and return empty. You pay Drivalia for the fuel on collection*.

Please note that the total fuel price includes an administration and refuelling fee which is 35€, therefore the total fuel tank cost may be slightly higher than at a petrol station (see* below) which is why the rental rates associated to this fuel policy are highly discounted.

Full to Full fuel policy (BASIC and ULTIMATE tariffs)

With the full-full fuel policy you collect the car with a full tank of fuel and simply return it full. Drivalia make no charge for fuel - just pay for what you use at a petrol station. The full to full fuel policy is standard with our Ultimate package and all bookings made directly with Drivalia.

Drivalia makes no charge for fuel unless, for whatever reason, you don’t have the chance to refuel the vehicle before returning it. In this case, when you return the vehicle, you will simply be asked to pay for the fuel used at our current market price*, usually without any penalty or refueling fee. A refuelling fee of 35 euros will be added to the cost of any missing fuel for clients on our Basic package who have chosen not to contract our SCDW cover.

Please check your rental confirmation for which fuel policy you have. If you have reserved through an intermediate company or a broker and your fuel policy is not what you want, we can sometimes change it for you at the reception desk. When changing from a "Full to Empty" to a "Full to Full" fuel policy an administration charge will apply. Depending on the rental duration and the chosen vehicle group, charges vary from 17 Euro to a maximum of 65 Euro.
