If you use economycarrentals .com you can expect the same rip off experience I felt when I recently entered a contract to hire a car with them for my holidays in Italy. I had to pay €140 extra.Otherwise, I was told, I was not covered for a plethora of conditions and the excess was €5000. This was by Locauto who acted as agent for Economy Car rentals .com even though Economy Car rentals .com advertise Unlimited mileage Third party insurance Fire Insurance with NO excess CDW-Collision Damage Waiver with NO excess ASC-Airport Service Charge where applicable ,VAT All local taxes .
EconomyCarRentals.com also state that some car rental companies might offer extra insurances upon delivery of the car, which is not necessary to buy as EconomyCarRentals.com will refund any excess paid.
Not so according to Locauto.I tried to sort this out but Economy Car rentals.com blamed Locauto and Locauto blamed Economy Car rentals .com .and guess who ended up out of pocket!!!!!
So my advice is BEWARE and dont use Economy Car rentals .com no matter how good the deal seems.
I think their problem is that if they advertise the full cost of thier insurance they will turn out to be more expensive than their competitors. and they know that ,as they are based in Greece ,they are unlikely to be taken to task. I hope in the next few weeks to lodge a complaint to the European Commission in an effort to stamp out this sharp practice.
