Avoid Europcar car rental

Jump to last reply

Hi. Recently we have rented a Europcar car for our month holiday in Australia at Sydney airport. Car was OK and served us well and we had returned it without any damage. Yet, that nice Australian branch of Europcar still considered it good idea to peel some extra money from us (fortunately not so much - but them being too greedy could have alarmed my bank) and charged us for special cleaning of the car interior - allegedly it was stained. I am not sure if there were any stains inside - we did not checked when getting the car in that dark cellar parking but I seem to recall that the car was not exactly clean. But what I do know for sure: we did not add any extra stains to the car seat covers and they provided no evidence there were any stains.

In any case, the whole think looked as a premeditated scam. So, next time I would go for some other company - hopefully this is not a common habit in Australia. I do not have any problem like that before when renting cats in the U.S.A., Europe, or Japan.

Good luck.
