I know this topic has come up few times but perhaps someone can share other insights.
We are renting a car in Edinburgh in May 2020. I made a reservation with Europcar (via Autoeurope) which we have used in the past and they are ok. Then we realized that the downtown offices are closed on Sundays and they open until 8am on Monday, we need to take our flight Monday morning. We wanted to change the reservation to pick and return at the airport, well price went up $200. Autoeurope has what is included and not in the reservation and 3rd party liability is included in the basic rental. I read it is required by law.
I booked another reservation with National picking up at the airport. I called them to find it out if the liability insurance was included, nobody could figure it out. I called again and they think I will get charged for it at the airport. I really want to know what is covered and not. Don't like $300 surprises. With National I like the fact that the 2nd driver is included but the rest is kind of unknown.
I have been looking at other rentals and prices are higher and seems none of them even mention the 3rd party liability.
Have any of you have used recently a particular rental car with a good experience, where you paid what you were told and you knew in advance what you would be paying when picking the car up?
I am thinking calling National at the airport and see if they would be able to tell me more.
