Fuel Policy

Any missing fuel when returned will be levied to your credit card presented at the time of pick up.


“Now I’ve done it, it will be nice and easy next time. Zit Auto van was in car park outside airport and process of pick up and drop off was relatively easy. Only problem was that I had been told by email their rep would meet me inside airport so I spent a bit of wasted time looking for them there before phoning and being redirected. Overall though a good experience and would use them again. The holiday autos price was nearly half of some of the main dealers so certainly value for money!”

“Car was ready, prompt and friendly service. Vehicle was in reasonable condition. Vehicle company ok. Car hire company sits at a table in coffee shop at arrivals hall. Their welcome sign could have been clearer, otherwise everything ok ”

“Vehicle suitable for needs and handover went well. Don’t queue up at the main desk, they operate from a van just opposite and to the left.”

“The Zitauto’s rep wasn’t waiting in the arrivals lounge but we folllowed the information provided in case of that event, which was to go to “car park four and look for the Grey Van”. It took a Thompson’s rep to tell us where to find the car park when it became apparent that we were unlikely to find it with-out help and it was a good 5 minute walk away from the airport. The van wasn’t apparent when we arrived at the car park but a helpful car rental rep, from another firm, pointed us to a milling crowd of people. In the middle of this crowd were the Zitauto’s reps; 3 people desparately busy people trying to process more than a dozen families waiting to collect their cars. ( And checking cars that were being returned ). After 30 minutes or so we started the paperwork and 15 minutes later we had our rental car. The car was fine, the hire firm’s reps were pleasant and kind but seriously overloaded with work. The collection instructions could have been more honest and clearer.”
