I rented a car from Europcar in Germany in September and discovered some scratches on the bumper while I was in Italy. I sent out two SOS emails, in each of the Germany and Italy forums. Kind souls in this forum provided me with precious advice. I would like to thank you again for all your help.
When I returned the car at Munich airport, the in-take agent (who works for all agencies, not just Europcar) did not say anything.
Once I was back in the US, I asked Europcar for a receipt, which they did not issue at Munich airport. So, I was hoping that this written receipt would be the final piece of document that I would ever receive from them regarding this rental. In other words, if they wanted me to pay for any damages, they should state so in this receipt.
Yesterday, Europcar emailed me an "invoice" which only itemized the one-way drop-off fee (which I paid already), without mentioning any repairs or damages. So, in this case, does this mean they are not going after me for potential bumper damage repair costs? After hearing horror stores about rental agencies over charging tourists for small cosmetic damages, I hope that this document can close the chapter for this trip and that I can sleep better at night. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks again!
