RentalCars.comadditional fees 100% increase in cost


I believe that this is the first time in my adult life that I have been so thoroughly fleeced by hidden fees which doubled the cost of the product I purchased. I rented a car through I conducted a search on their website, selected based on price, entered my credit card details and paid in full. When I arrived at the location to collect the car (Schiphol airport) I found that there were additional fees that DOUBLED the cost of the car. I wrote to upon my return home and was told AFTER the whole transaction about the fees. Instead of apologizing or splitting the difference, as I suggested, then sent me information that I needed at the time when I made the decision:
