Hi, has anyone experienced being ripped off by car rental companies when holidaying back in the UK?
We had a particularly bad experience, we're 1409.97GBP out of pocket.
I tried to reason with the company (Easirent in Manchester) to no avail. I've also tried EconomyBookings who we booked through and they won't help.
It seems they prey on overseas visitors as it's harder to fight back once you're out of the country.
Can anyone advise if they've successfully got their money back and by what method?
We are moving to Perth early December and are looking for a long term (1 year) family rental in either of these suburbs. Must have pool (we have promised the kids!) 4x2 ideally. Please contact me if you know of anything at all.
