Auto europe car rental

Please everybody keep in mind that this company
charge you more than you see as a total cost!
So be wary and don't get fooled by their low rates! They don't mention you about some fees before you pay them!

Sorry, traveller87, but I have not found that to be true. What fees are you talking about? Did you not return the car with a full tank of gas? That can cost you a bundle. Please explain the charges you are referring to.

How very good of you to go to the trouble of registering just for the purpose of trashing a reputable company.

You've been reported.

I don't know what in the world you could be talking about. I was charged exactly what they quoted me, except for the fees that are calculated by the specific rental company you end up with, such as an additional driver and road taxes, but these are clearly identified on the AutoEurope voucher. I'm sure this is the same for any car rental agency.

Sorry, I agree with the other posters. I've NEVER had any type of trouble with AutoEurope, not on fees, cars, anything. I've used them on all our trips and will again this fall.

This is an extremely reputable company that many. many of us have used with no problems.

If you want your complaint to have any effect I think you're going to have to tell us what these "hidden" fees and costs were.

Interesting first post. You had one experience with Auto Europe and claim to have been "fooled." I've rented more than 75 vehicles from them and never once had that experience. I wonder which one of us is right.

haven't we had a spate of weird first posts lately??

traveller87: unless you give us SOME idea what the heck you are talking about, how can anyone take you seriously? What extra fees? What type of rental? Where/when? Details, man . . . . . .

In renting through AutoEurope at least a dozen times, I've never, ever had a single extra charge added.

And not to make light of someone who has trouble with the English language, but clearly traveller87 would not be great at reading a lot of English, so it might be understandable that he got charges he didn't expect or even understand.

A few weeks ago there was a post about another car company named Auto Europa where posters reported add on charges. People were mixing it up with Auto Europe.

But - its still weird this is the only post ...

I-J, I assume you aren't talking to me this time. I haven't trashed anyone, and the others mainly seem to be asking for the details and explanation so the original post could be intelligently discussed.

It is very clear that the poster is not very adept at the English language, so that was the reason of possible explanation of his post. If you call that trashing. . .?

As usual, what the heck are you trying to say????

How's this?

Let me guess? those people are being helpful.. Right?

Ok I understand... They were just trying to help this person get a better answer from his post by telling him...

"You've been reported"

"haven't we had a spate of weird first posts lately??"

" don't know what in the world you could be talking about"

" you claim to have been "fooled." I've rented more than 75 vehicles from them and never once had that experience. I wonder which one of us is right"

I guess I was wrong.

I wasn't one of the posters that called the OP a liar or weird?

IDAHO JANE, in many years here, i have never, ever seen someone that truly needs a intervention of some kind, i mean that you are whacked enough that the rest of us should be worried. forget traveling, get yourself commited.
