Modifying car rental for new destination

Jump to last reply

We have a car rental booked for later this month, picking up at Chiusi and returning to Rome Fiumicino. However, we have heard from EasyJet who said that our flight out of Italy MAY be switched to Rome Ciampino. Frustratingly they haven't actually confirmed that yet, but I'm assuming that we will be switching.

Anyway, I booked the car through Expedia and we have a Europcar car lined up (Hertz couldn't provide the car size we needed, which was surprising). So, I will probably need to return the car to Ciampino.

I called Expedia and they told me that Europcar says if I wanted to make the change they would have to cancel my existing booking and book again. However, the price they quoted for the new booking was almost double what we have right now! Crazy!

Anyway, I have two options when we do get word of the flight change.

1. Go ahead and make the change and suck up the extra cost. I am very reluctant to do that given the price but at least I'd be all set.

2. Just pick up the car as planned and then inform them at the desk that I will be returning to Ciampino.

I had a friend with Hertz recently who changed her mind recently half way through her rental (this was also in Italy) and Hertz had no issue (no charge either).

What's the common wisdom on how to handle this? Realistically, the change is pretty small and the airports are reasonably close together so it really would feel unfortunate to have to pay big bucks to make this change, especially if I am giving them weeks of notice.
