How do you rent a car on Autoeurope UK when you live in US?

Jump to last reply

I know this has been discussed ad nauseam, but everytime I read a post about renting from autoeurope it is recommended to use autoeurope UK for better rates. Well, I've found this to be absolutely true and not only are the rates cheaper but the CDW & theft deductibles are much less.

I called Autoeurope and asked them why the rates varied so much & they gave me an explanation about how they get different rates for different countries. I asked them what would prevent me from just booking on the UK site and he said that when we go to pick up the car and they see we have a US passport they could deny us the car. So then I asked about the price matching guarantee. He refused, saying that they only match prices against other companies not their own company. (Sounds a little ironic to me!)

Anyway, maybe this has already been answered, but how do you get away with getting the cheaper rate?
