Default Goldcar fuel prices?

Just wondering if anyone knows how much Goldcar are likely to charge for the tank of fuel, am trying to work out how much to budget. It's the smallest kind of car available but people's experiences seem to vary massively and have no idea what it's going to cost!
Thanks!

We have used Goldcar in the past, I would estimate 40-55 euros, something like that!

Think their last charge to me was 70 euro for a tank of diesel on a Citroen C3. Daughter drives a C2 in UK which I think is the same tank - at current prices that costs her 36 to fill with unleaded so from that expect to pay twice as much as the value of the contents!!

Think it was around 50/55 when i was over a month ago, and that was for a C3! The weather was so good i gave it back with 3/4 of a tank must be a way we can syphon it out

thanks, I'm not very good with car types but think a C3 is a 'supermini' class? so probably similar to whatever I'm getting... We're staying for 2 weeks so will try and get our euro's worth, even if it entails circling the airport on the last day

Have just had a look online - though Goldcar was the cheapest a few months ago, Autoeurope is quoting 115 (E130 I think) while Goldcar are charging E293. Might have to check if it's too late to cancel with Goldcar as that is an insane difference!!!

If you've already booked then the hire price you pay will be what you were quoted when you booked (even if you didn't pay up front) not what they quote now. If you haven't paid, you can cancel at any time.

If you get offered a free upgrade to a larger car when you arrive, do ask how much the fuel will be as a larger car may have a larger fuel tank i.e. cost more.

Hmmm, well I could try and negotiate the price down but it sounds like it might be easier to just cancel it as haven't paid anything yet... If it was only a few euros I wouldn't bother but this is a massive difference so probably worth a bit of hassle. Although for all I know Auto Europe use Goldcar - guess I'll have to wait and see!
Thanks!

That's really weird. Do Euto Europe use only Goldcar in Majorca? Rental companies usually give discounts for brokers, but I guess not that massive!

Default Good prices available early season

I've just checked with Auto Europe available through the link on the left for car hire.....they've quoted 40 cheaper than anywhere else for the first week in May. They seem to have an offer on. The company they are offering it through are Centauro who we've used before. Good cars, good service but a 5 minute minibus transfer from the airport.
