Flex Fuel SDR/QRS: The Quick Return System, (SDR in Spanish,) associated with this reservation is an agile system
for returning the vehicle: it allows the customer to avoid unnecessary delays while returning the vehicle, last minute searches for service stations, or extra charges and penalties for refuelling errors. For this reason, the Quick
Return System includes a full tank of fuel that doesn’t need to be returned full, it does away with the need for a
check-in process to prove that the vehicle is topped up at the time it is returned, and it allows for flexibility in the
return time. The cost of the Quick Return System must be paid on collection of the vehicle. It is determined
based on the model of the hired vehicle and its fuel capacity, the price of fuel at collection and operational and
logistical expenses. The Quick Return System includes the compensation for remaining fuel on return of the vehicle according to the eights marked by the fuel gauge, excluding from that compensation the amount related
to operational and logistical costs.
IMPORTANT: the special current fuel policy for 3 days or less will disappear. Please, bear in mind that we will
process a refund for the remaining fuel on return of the vehicle but excluding the amount related to operational and logistical costs.
The price of the Quick Return System can be found at this web address: www.goldcar.es/sdr. It is necessary that
you provide the customers with this link (on your Website, your vouchers…etc.) so that there is transparency
with the fuel prices.
As you are aware, one of the most important issues is the transparency of the prices with no hidden costs. According to legal experts in consumers rights consulted this new system complies completely with European legislation.
We calculate the price of the SDR according to the following calculation:
SDR = Vehicle Model (in liters) x Price(€/liter) + OLC
Vehicle Model (in liters): the capacity in liters of the fuel tank based on the model the customer receives
Price (€/liter): the calculation of the unit Price of the fuel, taking as reference the average Price of the petrol stations in the Alicante Province (rentals with origin in Mainland & Baleares) and Gran Canaria (for rentals with
origin in any of our offices in the Canaries) according to the rates published in the Web of Industry, Energy and
Tourism Ministry: Spain http://geoportalgasolineras.es/ , Italy
(https://carburanti.sviluppoeconomico.gov.it/OssPrezzi/ricerca) and Portugal (http://www.maisgasolina.com). The
value used is the result of the average of the cheapest and the most expensive price available on the date consulted.
OLC: The necessary operational and logistical costs, the cost is associated to the concrete model of the vehicle
We consider this new system to be very beneficial for the customers and both our companies as the customers´
satisfaction will be increased positively.
Please, take into account that this issue will be a huge advantage compared to the current Goldcar fuel system.
Furthermore, we are sure we will reduce the amount of claims related to the current policy as well.
We suggest that you explain in your Website our new system in a different way highlighting the advantages the
customer will have.
The main advantages for the SDR/QRS are as follows:
- The vehicle is provided with a full tank
- It is not necessary to refill the tank before returning the vehicle
- Avoid unnecessary delays while returning the vehicle:
a. A check-in process is not necessary to prove the vehicle is topped up at the time it is returned
b. it is not necessary to look for a petrol station to refill the vehicle near to the drop off location
-Avoid refueling errors and the consequent costs as this is considered negligence
-Flexibility in the rental (in the offices where it is possible, the vehicle can be returned although the office is
-Save money (the unused fuel is refunded)
-Comfort thanks to the automatic refund of fuel when the contract is finished
