Hi Jules. Although your submission wasn't strictly a news item, I've put it up on the news page and duly noted your comments.

Out of interest, I tried doing the same thing as you: going to the Europcar site and getting a quote for two weeks in October. I chose, arbitrarily, the 4th to the 18th, picking up and dropping off at the South Airport.

When you say you were quoted over £700, I can only assume that you were looking at the two options from the top of their range. A Seat Alhambra and a Mercedes Vito, both people carriers, cost over £1,000!

However, to be more realistic, compact cars, such as the Renault Clio are priced at £234.33. We normally go for the next one up - a VW Polo or similar, which costs £250.75. So, a darn sight more reasonable than the "over £700" you mention.

I just thought I'd reply to your submission with my findings, in order that other visitors to my site are not misled by what you say.

Anybody wanting to check on this can go to the Europcar website and try getting a quote themselves.
