Returning rental car watch

    • Thread Starter

    We hired a car to go up to Birmingham tonight, through Europcar. We collected the car at 5 this evening, I told the guy I'd have it back by 11 tomoro morning, but now I've realised I could do with it in the afternoon. Surely having paid for 24 hours rental I'm within my rights to keep the car for the afternoon? I want to have a lie in in the morning and then do what I need to do, so I don't want to get up early to phone the place and find out. Anyone have any experience of this?

    The car is a Clio tourer by the way, and it's very nice


    5.1 Principle and Calculation
    You undertake to return the Vehicle to Europcar at the agreed place, on the date and at the time indicated on the rental agreement.

    The maximum duration of a rental agreement may vary from one country to another. The rental duration is calculated on the basis of indivisible periods of 24 hours, starting from the time the Vehicle is made available. However, a 30 minute grace period is applied at the end of the rental before the start of a new 24-Hour period.

    If you return the Vehicle to any other Europcar rental location than the agreed location, repatriation costs will be charged to you.

    Europcar strongly recommends that you carefully read this information available at counter

    Was on their Terms and Conditions, don't listen to me though. I know nothing xD
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
