Return your car hire with less stress

One of the questions I receive the most from our customers here at Pacific Rent-A-Car is how are our customers supposed to handle petrol for their vehicles. Gas stations here in North Cyprus can be found in the larger cities but when you are heading out of town for a day in the country you will find that the gas stations become few and far between. When you hire a car from us for your time in North Cyprus we try to make fueling your car as easy as possible. Here are a few tips to help you out while you are here.

1.When you arrive at the airport we will meet you there with your car hire. We can deliver your car to you with 20 GBPs worth of petrol already in the car. You simply pay us for the petrol when you pick up the car there at the curbside. When you leave North Cyprus you can return the car to us with as little gas in it as you want. You do not need to refill the tank. We’ll take care of it for you. This eliminates trying to find a gas station when you are ready to leave.

2.If you know that you are going to be travelling all over North Cyprus, we recommend that you fill up your tank before you leave for your drive. It’s a good idea to fill it up even when you leave the area you are visiting to return to your lodgings if there is a gas station close by. As I mentioned earlier, the gas stations are few and far between on our country roads. We would hate to see you run out of gas.

3.We will provide you with maps that show you where you can return your Pacific Rent-A-Car hire vehicle in the event that you leave North Cyprus from a different location from where you arrived. You will find that the pick-up and drop off areas at the airports here are in different places. The map will give you directions to the drop off point. If you lose your map, my staff and I will be more than willing to print out one for you to make your departure considerably easier.

4.We do not require you to fill out any papers when you are returning your car. We do recommend that you hold onto your original car hire agreement so that you can double check that everything is correct before you leave. It’s better to solve any issues while you are still in North Cyprus than when you get home. You should check the paperwork before you leave the rental counter when you first arrive and before you leave. This way if we have made a mistake we can correct it as soon as possible.

We want you to have a good time while you are visiting North Cyprus and we hope that the car you hire from us will serve you well. If you remember these fueling tips while you are with us, then you will have a great time that is stress free
