6Other Items

When returning the car
You are responsible for fuel cost, and as the car is rented to you with a full tank, it must also be dropped off with a full tank. If you are unable to return it with a full tank for some reason, the office will calculate the approximate cost and charge you accordingly. However, the liter price will be higher than usual because staff will have to fill your tank for you.
Parking violations
The police are ticketing parking violations more severely than in the past!
If your rental car is ticketed, please follow these instructions:
・ Go to the specified police station, and complete the paperwork as required promptly.
・ Pay the fine (usually between 15,000 and 18,000 yen) at one of the designated financial institutions, and drop off the car normally. When you drop off the car, please show the staff the ticket and proof of payment for the fine.
* If payment of the fine cannot be verified by the time the car is dropped off, you will be charged 25,000 yen for standard class cars, or 30,000 yen for medium class cars.
