I have read and heard about so many bad reviews about them. They should be avoided - there are a lot of hidden charges and they rip you off on the petrol charge.

I can't quite believe I was daft enough to book a car through the internet without searching for reviews beforehand.

It is not so much that they rip you off for the petrol, it is that they apply a charge of 22 euro for "logistics". This means for someone to drive the car to the garage you passed when returning the car to their miles away from the airport base to fill it up.

I filled it up before returning and they said I would recieve a full refund, but then kept the 22 euro. I will see what the consumer protection people have to say about it.

All power to you! :D

Do let us know what happens as I'm sure there will be widespread celebrations both here and in many other countries if even one of their shady practices ends up costing them dearly.
