Another Warning re Europcar Ljubljana

Jump to last reply

I can't believe the e-mail I just got - AND, upon coming to my trusty forum here to look for advice, the post someone else started just today about the exact same problem (see post here: http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/warning-europcar-car-rental-in-ljubljana-town.cfm).

I too rented a car from Europcar in Slovenia in August 2013 (picked up at City Hotel in Ljubljana and dropped off in Portoroz). The car was fine and the guy we returned it to said we were OK. Not only that, but he used the same car to drive us to our hotel in Piran - clearly the car was driving just fine.

2 months later and we just received an email saying that we broke the clutch on the car and have to pay about 950 euros for mechanical repairs. Our experience was great until now so I hate to bash them, but this is absolute BS. Moreover, I cannot believe that someone else out there is currently dealing with the exact same problem.

We just received the email today so I have yet to dispute the charges and/or contact my credit card company, but any additional advice from my fellow travelers would be much appreciated.
