In Italy now with a rental car snafu. Help!!!

Jump to last reply

I contracted a rental car with Economycarrentals back in Feb for our 15 day rental in Italy with pick up in Bologna airport on May 11 with Budget We left the US for Italy on May 5.

When we got to the airport to pick up our car their computers we down and they had no record of our rental. I showed Budget/Avis the copy of my rental contract and they used that information to handwrite a contract and off we went.

Yesterday, May 16, was the first day we had reliable wifi in our apartment in Levanto. When my husband finally got thru all his unread emails he found an email dated May 8th from Economy canceling our rental, 3 days before our pick up date which we have had a contract for almost 3 months!!

We now have a rental car with Budget with a contract that has been canceled but we have a contract in hand from Budget and we don't return the car until May 26 to Milan airport. We checked our credit card online and on May 13, 2 days after we picked up our rental, economy car rental has credited our card for the amount of the deposit we made for the rental back in Feb

What a mess!! We have a rental car with a contract that has been voided. I'm not sure which company we should contact first, Economy or Budget. Do I even need to do anything before we return the car and plan to sort it all out then. This is all so surreal I am wondering if anyone has been in this position and what we should do in what order.

I sure could use some helpful advice. Thanks, Deborah
