  1. I apologise if this is going to be a bit lengthy: thank you so much for reading this and I appreciate any advice I can have on my situation. I hired a car for a week before Christmas from LHR. I live in the middle east. Within one hour of collection, a flying stone on the motorway had caused a middle to driver side windscreen chip, about the size of a two pound coin. Upon arriving at my destination, I called teh accident hotline they supplied to ask for the chip to be examined and repaired because i was not sure that the car was roadworthy. They took details and promised to send someon
  2. I believe that Sixt is trying to rip me off. The facts were as follows: - The rental was for one day for £30 - I did not take the overpriced insurance. - The car was scratched / scuffed / damaged all over. - On return, the car was extremely thoroughly checked (delaying me needing to go to work) - Some non-recorded damage was found. - It was minor scuffing to the wheel arch. - I was asked to sign to check in - I did without being told what I was signing. - Having been informed by email, I complain to the full extent. - Several weeks later I received a bill for £3
  3. Hi guys, any advice here would be most welcome. Many thanks in advance. I hired a car from Sixt for two days. They are now trying to make me pay £182 for a scratch on the mirror which was there when we hired the car. When we hired the car we were told there was a chip in the windscreen and I walked around half the vehicle, my partner walked around the other side, and when he asked if I had mentioned the damage, I wrongly assumed that he meant the windscreen and so we hired the car under the impression that all damage on the car had been noted down correctly. Only when we retur
  4. Hi, A group of us (4 of us) recently hired a car, there where 3 named drivers on the car, although the contract in this case was in my name. We drove to another part of the country and received a parking fine from a Private Parking company, the photos taking show the car entering the premises and exiting, they do not show the drivers face. In this particular case we did not use any of the parking spaces instead we where by the gates of one of the companies which is in the complex whilst we unloaded and loaded some equipment, and we where instructed to park where we did by the busine
  5. Since being 'done' £45 for a stone chip to the windscreen of a commercial van, I have entered into correspondence with a very aggressive well known national car & van hire company. We know that the branch concerned encourages its staff to under estimate the damage at the time of collection then makes charges accordingly to the unsuspecting innocent hirer on return if they havnt taken out the extra insurance demanded at the start. This is confirmed by an ex member of staff. The little market research I have conducted through friends and relatives shows a seedy world of opportunism and lo
