SIXT car rental and DCC. (DCC in Spain is getting really annoying...)

Jump to last reply

Actually DCC in Spain used to be annoying, but now it is getting downright offensive.
I rented a car from SIXT in Tarragona, my booking was done in euros. But when I arrived in the office and got my contract, the contract said I would be charged in dollars with a 3% commission, and that I had to pay it. I told the agent no way, I want to be charged in euros. She said don't worry, we only charge in euros.

Dropped off the car, once again was told I would be charged in euros, but no, they charged me in dollars. When I wrote to customer service they said their system could not change from dollars to euros if its a US card. Right.

Has anyone else experienced this with car rentals in Spain? I thought we were suppose to be able to have a choice here.

On this trip I also got charged in dollars in a restaurant, the owner was not at fault, he showed me the credit card terminal and it would not allow euros! Only dollars. There was a button for euros, but it was grayed out and not accessible. The owner was embarrassed and he got another terminal a couple of days later but, what the heck. Having to be vigilant 100% off the time just to not get ripped off by a bank is obnoxious.
