You will get a car with fuel (full level) and you should give it back with fuel (full level), otherwise you would pay for the fuel to the rental agency at an unfavourable price. The petrol station is very close to the airport and it accepts credit cards.
It is recommended to reserve a car at least two weeks before the conference. It is recommended to ask whether a satelite navigation device is included in the price or paid extra, whether a driver (when tired) can be changed by a passenger or this option is extra paid, whether the number of coutries you will cross makes effect on the price (you will cross the Czech Republic to Slovakia, so travelling abroad through two countries), whether coming back late at night rises the price, whether a deposit for the rented car is blocked at the credit card (so the card is necessary) and what deposit, whether you have to buy any insurance. You can call the agency desk at Katowice airport and ask these questions. You can use emails.
