Returning a rental car at Alicante airport

Returning a rental car at Alicante airport. You may need to fill up the tank before returning a rental car at this airport following the "full out/ full return" fuel policy.

In this case and for your information, there is Galp petrol station opposite the new terminal building.

1. If you head to the airport from the A7 highway, take the exit "aeropuerto" through the road N338. Then in the first roundabout take the road N332 heading to Alicante.
You will be able to turn back in another roundabout and then reach the N338 road back again to the airport and the petrol station.

2. If you already drive on the N332 from any direction and heading the airport, just take the exit to the airport through the N338.

Centauro rent a car Valencia Manises Airport

Centauro is a Spanish rental car company that operates the Full/Empty fuel policy, when you make a reservation for more than 3 days.

Some useful information regarding their location at Valencia airport (Manises):

Like most of the car hire companies at Manises airport,Valencia Centauro have no desk at the airport terminal . Some rental car suppliers like Avis, Hertz and Europcar do have a desk , but ALL provide their customers with a prompt bus service to the nearby facilities in Manises Polygon, where the rental car fleets are located. This bus collects and delivers the customers outside Departures. On your confirmation voucher it explains this, so whether you arrive by air or to the airport by taxi, for example, you should stand just outside the airport in front of Departures and await the Centauro shuttle bus.

If you are not arriving by air, you can go directly to their office and collect your rental car. When returning a car, then you always go to the same office.

Please note that most spanish car rental companies operate a full out empty return policy. Click here for additional advice on Tipoa's FAQ page

With Centauro if you rent a car for 3 or less days, you have the chance of returning it with the tank full and the initial amount of money you paid as a deposit for the fuel when you collected the car, will be reimbursed.

I recommend that you take this option, as they charge you a premium amount for the initial full tank of fuel. So it is best that you do not return the car empty.

Filling up the tank before returning the rental car is not a problem as there are many petrol stations at Manises Polygon. i.e. just a few meters behind Centauro local there are a Repsol and also a Galp petrol stations.
