CarTrawler failure to effect full refund in face of emergency

There is a case thread - please refer to it. (Anastassia Swallow)

Two young women have been robbed as a direct result of your callousness in ignoring their highly vulnerable circumstances, despite warnings Given to you.

Not only have you failed to give them accessible to their funds when all of their money, passports and valuables have been stolen, but you have now failed to correspond and blocked correspondence.

Your actions are negligent and appallingly irresponsible.

Please refund in full to the Barclays account details provided by direct transfer of the balance as a matter of urgency.

CarTrawler taxi - collection service

I booked a collection from the Metropolitan Hotel to Dubai Terminal 3 Airport for 7:30 on Monday 13 November. After waiting 10 minutes, I contacted the call centre. I explained my problem, then told to hold on for quite a while, only to be told that they cannot locate the taxi. Therefore they recommend I take a local taxi.
Actually, the local taxis in Dubai are great and in future this will be my choice.
However, now I am faced with the challenge of getting a refund!

By the way, I was meant to be picked up on the Saturday (11 November) morning, but as it took a little longer coming through customs, so I was told the taxi could not wait for me (as I was informed after the fact, they only wait 45 minutes). I was then told to take a local taxi. So after paying up front for the services, I received nothing in return!

Thank you Car Trawler, I will certainly make a note of the company name!

CarTrawler car rental

Hi, My name is Brian Sterling and I tried to rent a car through you guys and I made a reservation over the phone. I was charged $174.04 and I wasn't able to rent the car because I didn't have a major credit card. I have rented from Dollar Rent A Car before and used my debit card without a problem. Now I guess they require a major credit card. So.. I NEVER received a car to drive AT ALL. When I called your office to demand a refund..the lady I spoke with said that management wasn't in to process anything. My problem is I was charged for services that weren't rendered. The lady tried to tell me that I should have read the "policy agreement", but how can I read a policy agreement when I was charged over the phone? I am extremely upset. You can call me at [protected]

CarTrawler refund!

I booked a rental car in Windhoek, Namibia on Sept.4 for a two day rental with Budget rentals via Carhire. I then had to cancel to my trip being postponed.
I call the rental place well within the timeline for refunds and they assured me I would receive my refund! It is NOW November 11 and still NOTHING! This is despite multiple emails AND phone calls to Carehire !

CarTrawler excessive charge and no reimbursement as promised

Car trawler support

Reference: booking number mx794406600

On september 5, 2017 I made a reservation for the rent of a car using the klm internet page, the number of the reservation was mx794406600, for renting a economic class car in méxico city form september 11th to september 25th, 2017 paying in advance the full amount for euro 305.84 ($6, 591.05 pesos) including car hire fee and insurance, as shown on attachments 1 and 2 of this email.
When I came to mexico at the offices of mex rent-a-car in addition to the guaranty amount charge to my partner francisco sárraga rodríguez on his credit card (See attachment 3); it was requested to me to pay an additional the amount of $5, 915.13 pesos (See attachment 4) not been clear what was the concept, but making very clear that if I didn´t cover such amount I would lose the money already paid by since the reservation. They said that in the moment of the delivery of the car, it should be reimburse to my bank account.
I will add that the car in terrible shape, it had trouble to start, full of bumps, parts of the interior where missing and had problems with starting, as you can see in the physical inventory they did to the car prior to delivered to me. My first choice was to cancel the rent, but again the threatened me with losing all my payment.
When I deliver back the unit, of course they refused to give me a copy of the inventory of the car. The invoice they gave me was for $8, 565.96 pesos (See attachment 5) and did not match with the payments I did for altogether $12, 504.18.
I requested the reimbursement of amount of $3, 938.22 paid in excess; first they argued that the difference was to the exchange rate, which I cleared immediately with my balance account in pesos of my debit card, where original charge was made since de reservation (See attachment 6) for $6, 591.05 pesos and the amount of $5, 915.13 pesos paid when I got the car referred on attachment 4. Once this argument did not work the employee said that it would be reimbursed to my account, in about 3 weeks. Which of course did not happen, I call several times to the telephone provided by him 01-[protected] where they told me all this time that they do not know anything about it, and the last call, they said this money will not be paid back, because it was my fault to pay in excess, when I was push to do it.
Therefore I call you car trawler where I was instructed to send my complaint by mail with all the attachments, as I am currently doing.
I will be expecting your prompt response on this matter and thank you for your assistance.

Best regards,

CarTrawler return airport transfer in lisbon

Date of incident - 15th Sept and 22nd Sept 2017.

PT766765160

Our experience with your provider (Bedriven) was shocking start to finish. Whilst we did meet our driver on arrival he wasn't in the arrivals hall, he had walked away from the meeting point leaving a phone number on a piece of paper which wasn't clear at all. The contact number we had been given in case we couldn't find the driver just rang out. When we did find him he was clearly unfamiliar with the vehicle and his driving was extremely poor. He was struggling to change gears at all and constantly looked at his phone on the passenger seat rather than in a cradle.

On our return journey the vehicle simply did not turn up. After being reassured several times it would arrive we were told by the transfer company it wasn't coming and we should get a taxi! This made us an hour late for the agreed set off time and made the journey to the airport and our time in the airport very stressful as we came close to missing our flight. All the transfer company could say is 'we will reimburse you for your taxis'.

I've booked many transfers and never had such a poor experience. I have attached our two taxi receipts (there were 6 of us travelling) and demand that I receive a full refund of my original fee (£34.55) as well as the taxi refund (27.03 euro) due to the appalling service received plus suitable compensation for the experience we endured at the point of the return transfer.

Cartrawler's website makes it impossible to complain and Bedriven won't accept the complaint from me despite them being at fault.

CarTrawler overcharged for car hire

I recently hired a car through Ryanair with Budget in Tenerife. Reference number ES808781680. I collected the car on 27/10/17 and returned it 01/11/17.
I returned the car in perfect condition on Nov 1st. I see from my credit card statement that I have been charged £16.99. I can only assume this is for petrol. However I stopped on the way to return the car specifically to fill it up, as I had been assured that if I brought the car back full I would not be charged anything.

I am extremely unhappy at finding that my card has been charged with no explanation, and expect the money to be returned.

If it is not I will contact my credit card company and tell them not to take the payment and explain the situation, which they can then investigate further.

I look forward to hearing from you.

This review isn’t specifically about Klass Wagen Timisoara but about Klass Wagen in general. We recently rented a car from Klass Wagen Lisbon. It was a terrible experience. We made the booking using a car rental umbrella organization called CarJet, and through CarJet we purchased additional insurance.

When I tried to pick up the car, Klass Wagen refused to give us a car unless we again paid for their extra insurance. Their reason they gave was that my Visa card also doubles as a debit card, though it has separate numbers for credit and debit. I have used this card to make purchases from many businesses, including car rentals in several countries. I’ve never had any problem with it. I used the same card when I made the original booking through CarJet. It was clear to me that this was some kind of scam to force renters to buy the additional, very expensive insurance. I tried reasoning with the branch manager but she refused to give us a car and told me that, because of my arguing, she wouldn’t give me a car even if I paid extra for the insurance. She refused to put me in touch with her superior. By this time we were late to another booking (a palace visit) that I had paid for and reserved a specific time. I called the police.

Though my voucher contract said only that I had to use a major credit card in my own name, which is exactly what I was doing with my Visa card, they insisted that this dual use card (very common, at least in Scandinavia where I’m from) didn’t qualify. There was nothing they could show me in the paperwork, even in the small print, forbidding this kind of card. I explained this to the police when they arrived, that Klass Wagen was not honoring their contract with me, but the police couldn’t force them. When I told the police that Klass Wagen was now refusing to rent the car to me, even with the extra insurance payment, Klass Wagen relented and allowed me to take the car, rather than forcing me to spend hours booking with another car rental and fetching another car. Still, I had to pay a couple hundred extra euros for this duplicate insurance.

Now when back home, I wrote to CarJet about the problem. Thus far they have been completely unhelpful. So I’m writing this review to warn you to stay away from Klass Wagen and probably from CarJet too. They clearly are out to cheat people.

I’ll add some other more minor complaints. Firstly, the car was very low powered, requiring downshifting to go up even minor slopes. The car had no cruise control. And then when returning the car early in the morning, though Klass Wagen claims to be open 24 hours a day with airport shuttles every 15 minutes, no one was at the office. No one answered their “emergency number”. It took about 40 minutes waiting before someone finally came and the shuttle left to take us to the airport. We were lucky we didn’t miss our early morning flight. I strongly recommend you avoid Klass Wagen and choose a more trustworthy car rental agency.

WARNING! Fraudulent damage assesments/Extortion racket at Klasswagen OTP...

I rented from the OTP location and became a victim of another fake 350 Euro microdamange assessment for pre-existing small marks on return. Klasswagen using the exact same method as documented below.

Klasswagen operates an extortion for "protection package upsell" and if this is refused, they will use pre-existing microdamanges in some cases less than 1mm across to levy "damage" assessment two to four weeks after return. It is not possible to adequately document these microdamages because they are numerous and indeed, they have a confidential inventory of these marks on every vehicle that they use when customers do not see them so that they can always levy "damages."

See the numerous reviews on Tripadvisor.

These are all illegal activities and are actionable under EU law. GOLDCAR operates using the same methods and were fined millions of Euros in Italy recently after consumer complaints. So we can deliver some consequences to them but we need to act together.

WHAT I AND YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

So here is what you can do to be concrete. Sure, post your review here. But take actions as below.

1. Credit card chargeback. Detail the extortion method.

The extortion cannot operate without their merchant status with VISA and MC. So, if they are dropped by the credit card companies their extortion comes to an end.

Note the extortion is always below the hold threshold of 1150EUR...this deliberately planned to avoid insurance company audit/investigation.

HOLDBACK can also be increased to the point where Klasswagen can't operate, because they cannot operate this scheme without access to the security deposits placed on credit cards. CC companies will use chargebacks as one way of evaluating merchant risk - so file, and ensure your complaint is considered.

2. Complain to the EU competition authorities about a) high-pressure upsell of "protection package" and b) fraudulent microdamage assessments

Search for EU car rental complaint portal - this varies by your country of residence - and file the complaint. Include the evidence of the GOLDCAR case with the specific practices which the EU punished because KLASSWAGEN's model is identical in the key respects.

3. Complain to credit card risk management. Independent of your EU complaint, these companies can take actions e.g. dropping Klasswagen from authorized merchant status.

Point out the numerous cases of other consumers charging back and ask them to compare the rates of chargeback for Klasswagen vs. Hertz/Avis.

4. Complain to their damage assessors. I did so and their risk management department has been notified. I am following up on this because another aspect of their fraud is the magnitude of the damage assessment and the time out of service to "fix."

It doesn't take three days to fix a paintmicroscratch in the panel which isn't even visible except under bight light and very close inspection...

We also need an onsite EU audit of their records...because it's clear that if these assessment are true, their cars should be out of service for considerable periods. Ask specifically for the EU to conduct an audit of out-of-service periods by VIN number and correlate with new rentals for same VIN...

5. Separately complain about the false Internet reviews - search European Commission websites for "false advertising consumer complaints." Make a separate complaint to prompt another investigation, independent of the complaint about damages. Put more pressure on Klasswagen.

The totality of their fraudulent and extortion exceeds even GOLDCAR which until now I thought was the worst and most illegal car rental company in the world.

Do you feel like a victim too? Well, don't sit still and just let them do it to you. Make them face consequences from every possible consumer and governmental entity. You'll need to put some time in, but considering the EU acted against GOLDCAR in Italy with less than 50 formal complaints, you can have a real say in what happens. Invest the time to complain.

CarTrawler they will not cancel my reservation!

I have tried since July of 2017 to cancel the following reservation...

FR741387920 and to date, it is still active. I have gone to their website to fill in the booking number and date of pickup and it still won't cancel. They do not respond to my email. Their problem is that they want to keep my $25 deposit and then try to charge the full amount because I would end up being a "no show."

I booked through justfly.com
I thought I could pick my car up between the hours of 10am till 7pm on October 24th. Nobody told me there was a time the car had to be picked up! My flight got me into Orlando at 3pm. My confirmation number is 3000886 and my name is Teresa Futrell.
I would like a refund or another car.
You need to be clear with customers and let them know your terms and conditions.
Why would I book a car for 10an pickup when I don't arrive till 3pm that day! This has been an awful experience!

CarTrawler ryanair car hire / cartrawler

I have already lodged a complaint requesting a full refund of the money we paid for a car we never were able to rent. The Ryanair car hire customer support link states that our complaint has been reviewed, a full refund issued and that the issue has been resolved. However, we have still received no refund of our money and have received no emails from customer support. I have sent 5 emails saying all this and I have received no replies. I am sick of this! I now can't figure out how to lodge a new complaint because when I put in our booking reference, the system just keeps telling me "it's been resolved." IT HASN"T BEEN RESOLVED! We still have not received our refund and our booking was 13 September! This is ridiculous. All organisations involved have disgusting customer service and I am furious. Just give our money back!

CarTrawler the contents of the voucher were different from those at the counter. and the balance is not refunded.

I rented a car through ""CARTRAWLER"" from August 23, 2017 to December 26, 2017. The voucher CARTRAWLER sent me is recorded as $ 3874.35 during this period.

But a month after renting a car, AVIS was billed an additional $ 1117.76. When I contacted AVIS about this, AVIS says I have to pay an additional $ 1117.76 monthly premium.

I found that the cost of renting for four months was twice as much as the cost I paid on CARTRAWLER homepage.

I believed in the contents of CARTRAWLER's booking system and voucher that "all expenses(rental fee & full coverage insurance) have been prepaid". But AVIS does not know about it. And I had no insurance from CARTRAWLER they show me on voucher. (CDW, LI, … etc). There is no insurance ! But full coverage insurance was shown on voucher (attached). I was deceived by CARTRAWLER & their voucher.

After all, I quit a rental car. However, I have not yet received the refund for the remainder of the refunded period.

I sent e-mail to CARTRAWLER already many times. But I did not receive refund of USD 1756.66 even though 15 business days have passed.

My Booking No. is US77***4880

I suffered a lot from the contract with Cartrawler. I would like a quick refund to avoid any further financial loss.

Please refund my money !

CarTrawler car hire

I past the 90 time limit, I had paid for fully comprehensive insurance on my car hire. I dented the driver side front panel at a car park, and had to pay almost £700 on return. I was told the insurance company would refund me in about a month. I haven't heard from them and only now doing my yearly accounts have I tried chasing up the claim. There is no way to put my complaint to them.

CarTrawler unethical behavior on booking ref: ae786465720

Dear CarTrawler,  

I am writing for you to complain about Booking Ref: AE786465720. 

My brother rented a car from you and the agent refused to give him the car. Now, you might have misunderstood the situation. So, lets make sure you have it right. 

My brother showed up at the time of pick-up with his Master Card. However, your agent said he can't accept it as the numbers on the card are not craved, rather printed on the card. 

When I submitted a case to refund me the money, I received an email with case number: [protected]. The email explained that I will not get my money back because I failed to meet the credit card requirements.

I looked up the confirmation email and the travel reminder email, but I didn’t find a term stating that master cards with printed numbers on them would not be accepted. I also looked up the terms and condition on the following website, where it states that you accept MasterCard (not debit or prepaid), but nothing about not accepting master cards which have their numbers printed on them: https://customer.cartrawler.com/s/prod-rentalconditions?portal=Default&booking=AE786465720&email=SALLOH10%40HOTMAIL.COM

Therefore, I demand that the manager email me to discuss the case. I also request the full refund. Otherwise, I will have to file a lawsuit in my local jurisdiction.

Regards,

CarTrawler remboursement d'un paiement indû

- Le 31 janvier dernier, j'ai réservé via le site Transavia et CarTrawler un véhicule Aircar Duster du 14 février 17h au 21 février 2017 18h à Essaouira au Maroc, numéro de réservation MA752586410 pour un montant de 434, 31€.

- Le 3 février 2017, j'ai reçu à ma grande surprise car je n'en avais fait aucune demande, un email de CarTrawler, indiquant "suite à votre demande nous avons annulé votre réservation. Tout remboursement qui vous est dû interviendra sur votre compte bancaire sous 10 jours ouvrables".

- Le 8 février, j'ai donc procédé à une nouvelle réservation N°MA759963250 d'un véhicule Duster, sur le même site, du 14 février 10h au 21 février 10h pour un montant de 376, 85€.

- A mon arrivée à Essaouira le 14 février, l'agence Aircar m'a informée que deux véhicules étaient à ma disposition. Je lui ai expliqué ce qui m'était arrivé en lui montrant les documents. Il m'a dit qu'il n'y avait pas de problème et que je ne serai pas débitée du premier véhicule car il faisait le nécessaire en annulant par lui-même.

- De retour à Paris, j'ai constaté sur mon relevé de compte bancaire que les deux sommes avaient été prélevées, l'une le 31 janvier et la seconde le 8 février 2017.

- A l'occasion de mon passage suivant à Essaouira le 19 avril dernier, j'ai remis copie de tous les documents à l'agence Aircar qui a admis l'erreur et m'a demandé de patienter jusqu'en mai car la procédure de remboursement prenait 3 mois depuis février. Depuis lors sans constater de remboursement de la somme qui m'est due à savoir 434, 31€, je me suis rendue à la police de qui m'a orientée vers M.Laarous le commandant de l'aéroport d'Essaouira qui suit mon dossier et m'a conseillé de vous écrire.

Je vous remercie de bien vouloir vérifier dans vos comptes les éléments que je vous ai indiqués et procéder rapidement à mon remboursement car cela fait huit mois que cette somme m'a été prélevée indûment.
Dans l'attente de votre réponse,
Cordialement,
Catherine chouard

CarTrawler fr751797480

Hello,
I have had many exchanges of e-mail with Carter regarding a Budget Car rent 28/08 - 11/09/2017 from Nice Airport!
Despite proving evidence in the form of:
1) Norwegian Air confirmation without insistence
2) Carter confirmation without assurance
3 Budget final statement without insurance

I have made an reservation directly with Carter but canceled and this was including insurance with AXA, however it was canceled and confirmed!

Despite the facts Carter maintains that I have indeed asked for the insurance that never has been confirmed either by Budget, Norwegian Air or Carter themselves!

I fail to understand this unwillingness to face facts and I feel that I am been treated very badly by this organization!

Kind regards
Torben Raae Madsen

My name is Linda Sauck. Booking number US788660200. Email [protected]@hotmail.com.

Dealing with your company was a complete nightmare for me. I booked your service so I could have peace of mind on our first trip to New York. Our schedule drive to pick us up from JFK was Victor Acosta Vehicle RAE123 reservation 10WSGXB. He called at 4:15 PM and was stuck in Brooklyn and would be very late. We cancelled. We called the number we had been given to get another car. They had a very difficult time finding us and when they did they could not get us another car. I am older and had a very difficult time with dealing with your company! We Ebert!
On Sept. 25, 2017 we were scheduled to be picked up at our hotel Staybridge Suites at 8:00 AM. I had really considered cancelling your service. I so wish I had! We received several text with our confirmation number etc. Our scheduled driver was Samuel Espinal. Reservation 10WR51P. This driver should be fired or at least reprimanded. We were outside or hotel at requested pickup time of 8:00 AM. At 8:15 I called the number on our confirmation. Again they could not locate me. Not by name or phone number. I had to call back with confirmation number to cancel again! I called the driver, Sam Espinal and he had no idea what I was talking about! How is that possible. How could a company stay in business. We are now so worried about getting to the airport and catching our flight! We were lucky to get a car that was waiting outside our hotel. We were very close to missing our flight! What I do not understand is how this could happen. I hired your service for peace of mind and received extreme stress! Shame on you!

We arrived and the manager of the rental company denied our voucher, stating first that they could not locate our reservation when providing them with the booking number above (However, I have in the meantime spoken with a few customer service representatives and they did not have an issue locating our reservation). Then he found it and stated that he would not honor it, because it was a prepaid voucher paid with a debit card (incorrect, because we paid it with our visa card, which is on our debit card and deducted as a visa credit card).

Since they were "unable" to locate our reservation, and then denied our prepaid voucher, we had to pay a much higher price for a rental from them under the RR [protected].

We would like to be reimbursed the difference between the original price we were to rent this car at $339.25, and what they actually charged us at the counter $694.04.

This situation cost us great inconvenience. We were very displeased with how the manager handled us, very rude and incompetent and on top of everything else, he denied military discount despite the fact we showed our active duty military id card.

Please note, that we contacted Dollar/Hertz first with the above issue, because they were the ones denying the prepaid voucher. We received the following reply from them via email under "Dollar Customer Care Case # [protected]", therefore we are contacting you as per their request:

"Dear Mr. White,

Thank you for contacting us. I appreciate the opportunity to review your concerns.

Please accept my apologies that we are not able to review your contract due to the rental being pre-paid. When you pre-pay a booking the transaction was completed by the vendor you purchased your voucher with. They have a customer service department that handles your particular inquiry. Once they are contacted regarding your inquiry, they will review your case and provide a resolution for you, once they contact our prepaid department here at Dollar.

Yours sincerely,

April

We are awaiting your response.

Sincerely,

Andrew White

CarTrawler I would like to be refunded about a booking debited twice because of a bug

Boa tarde :)

3 weeks ago I booked a car on "inter-rent " (a Renault Clio from the 3/09 till the 10/09) but I booked (ans paid) twice because of an internet bug ! (88euros x 2)

I effectively did the travel perfectly (with an other car finaly), but my account was debited twice but the other problem is that I didn't receive any confirmation of the booking (I mistaked while writing my email adress...that's why I can't contact you on the support directly, I don't have the number of the first reservation, it doesn't work... The good one is : elyse.[protected]@gmail.com ).

The informations about my last and effective booking on inter-rent (which I traveled with ) are these ones :

Mrs.BERGER Elyse

My Number of contract : [protected]
Reservation number : [protected]-1
Reference : PT790110600

I have the copy of the reservation if you need a screenshot :)

I really expect to be reimbursed...I trust you to help me, I hope you will,

Thank you so much and have a good day before your reply !:)
