Recently there has been much talk about extra costs for car hire in Malaga and other places and countries. Talk of fuel rip-off, additional hidden extras and exclusions. We are now taking up the fuel issue. What to expect from most hire car companies on the Costa del Sol in addition to the vehicle is an excessive cost for a full tank. Charged at rates that may be much higher than at the petrol station. Then you are to return it empty. First, the difference by selling fuel more expensive and second the amount of unused fuel that is left in the deposit when returned will bring up the total hire cost very much. We give out our Malaga hire cars with the amount of fuel that was in the car when it was returned by the last client and then you then leave it more or less the same as you got it.
