Car rental at Preveza Airport.

Has anyone else been ripped off by Thrifty at Preveza airport. Daughter in Law travelling alone arrived on a delayed Easyjet flight recently, Car was booked through Economy Car rentals, which it seems are just booking agents. Although her voucher stated that there would be no mandatory extras charged on collection, there were. The agent demanded 45+ euros for fuel and 25 euros because the flight was late. Since it was around 11pm and she was both tired and intimidated she reluctantly paid up as the agent would not let her take the car unless she did. Whats the betting that the previous hirer had also been charged for that tank of fuel and that her charge and the extra for the late arrival didn't go through the books.

Why not take it up with the company? Let us know what happened. Who was the company that delivered the car?

I have already been in touch with the company I booked with and they said that I should take it up with Thrifty, the hire company. I told them that since I had booked with them then they must deal with the problem and not pass the buck to me to resolve. I have have also emailed copies of the paperwork issued by Thrifty. We shall await their response....

Personally I would phone Thrifty which is owned by Autohellas. Emailing in Greece rarely gets results

Autohellas ATEE

31 Viltanioti Str.

145 64, Kifissia

Athens

Tel: +30 210 6264000

Did you read the terms on their site? :

https://www.thrifty.com.gr/en/rental-terms/

Seems the company you booked with are responsible for reimbursing the money

Did you phone the Greek number of Economy Car Rentals?

As I didn't book with Thrifty I don't see that their T&Cs are relevant to me, only those of Economy. If they say no extras to pay on collection then that's what I expect.
