Well I've had an ongoing battle for years with the local franchise of a national hire car company about the cars they provide when booked through the work.
I always ask for a "car", Vectra, Mondeo, Passat, Mazda 6 etc. As long as it's not a people carrier like a Picasso. So almost every time I get home they've left a Grand Picasso or a Galaxy.
So today had to nip over to Pontecarlo. During final arrangements decision was made to find out who could arrive in the worst hire Car.
I was confident but just as bit of insurance went down a group. Hire car company didn't let me down. a 1.4 TDI Skoda Fabia Estate sat sheepishly on the drive last night.
But I still lost. Seems Durham (same company) can beat that. They provided one of our guys with a Nissan Note. Never even seen one before but a quick appraisal in the car park showed mine was better. Gutted for the rest of the day.
