After you have parked the rental car on the area of the car rental company, an employee of the car rental company will examine the condition of the rental car. If the condition and fuel level is the same as when you picked up the car, the retained deposit amount will be refunded to you. 

Return outside the opening hours

In principle, a return of the rental car outside the opening hours of the car rental company is possible without any problems. At airports, many car rental agencies are open around the clock. If your return station is in the city and the car rental agency is closed, place the vehicle key in a safe provided for this purpose. Once the car rental company reopens, an employee will assess the condition and release the deposit amount back to you.
