    I pre-booked a car online months ago for £333. when I got to europcar I gave the guy the reservation number and this booking was completely ignored and my lack of sleep taken advantage of.
    Firstly I was told they did not have the car I ordered so they were “going to give me a nice upgrade” what they didnt tell me was that i had to pay an extra £432 on top of my hire costs for that upgrade.
    I was told that the car they were giving me was automatic, I don’t need automatic but wasn’t told this would cost extra so I was like ‘ whatever’.
    After the purchase was finalised I was told he had ‘Given me’ roadside assist, this i later realised had cost me £167.90.

    The sales guy did not come up for air and I was constantly bombarded with talk other than the hire process to distract me from what was going on. I was extremely tired, jetlagged and stressed and this was absolutely manipulated to europcars advantage. They have ruined my holiday because of this.
    My original booking cost was for £333, the final rip off was for £1633. Big difference, my flight from Australia didnt cost this much. The premium upgrade was also a joke. The car had its passenger mirror broken, the car needed a wash, the windscreen wiper is broken and there are dents and scratches all over the car. The driver side mirror electronics were faulty, it kept moving itself while I was driving. Several of these problems were not even listed on the report.
    I was charged for and extra three days, I don’t know why. The car was picked up and returned on the days quoted, 24 days in total which is listed on the invoice. I was charged £46 for fuel tank option, the tank was full when i returned it. I had filled it up at the local petrol station two minutes away. None of these extra charges were “sales pitches”, I live on very limited means and if I had realised at the time I could not have agreed to them because I have no way of paying for them and am now over AU$2000 in debt because of eurocrap.
