The issue in GetHuman1958836's own words
Rent a car ... I had Priceline car reservation ***-***-***-**, which I picked up on December **. Upon pickup, the car agency told me I must take their insurance, which was $**.***day. I have my own insurance and had no intention of taking the rental company's insurance. I did not see any notification about this when I was booking via Priceline or in my confirmation after booking, however the car rental agency (Europcar*Discount) said it was their policy and they refused to give me a car unless I took their insurance. At that time I was stuck, as I was **** miles from home, had booked the car a month ahead of time, it was *:** at night and I had to drive * hours away, so I had no other options. If this requirement to purchase insurance had been revealed to me when I was booking, I would not have chosen to rent this car and would instead have rented from a different company, since this ended up costing me almost $*** more than expected. Following my trip, I "chatted" with a Priceline rep (Kinn), who told me I should have been allowed to decline the insurance and that I would need to contact Europcar (the rental company) directly. I emailed the specifics to them and received the following response - "Be advised that as per Discount terms and conditions, only Canadian coverages are accepted. Please note that your reservation was done through a third party company, so you need to contact them directly as they should be aware of the terms and conditions."*I should be entitled to a full refund of this insurance charge. * Please help.*Thank you.
Rental car company forced me to take their insurance
Refunding the rental car insurance cost
I've "chatted" with Priceline, who told me to deal directly with the rental car company. When I went to the rental car company, they said I should deal with Priceline, who should have known the terms and conditions of the rental car company. Grrrrrr.
I have an issue with Priceline too
