We find a huge variation in guests' usage of fuel and electricity. For this reason we feel it is fairer to charge fuel and electricity 'at cost', as an extra, at the end of the stay, based on actual recorded measurements of consumption. That way the more economical guests are not subsidising the more extravagant users as so often happens when an 'all-in rental' figure is quoted. All-in rentals tend to build in a fuel allowance based on average to high usage. Our system means you only pay for what you use.
