    Last Name And First Name The Same?

    Accept the $25 fee and rebook directly with one of the 3 airlines that fly this route. Also, if her son is over 21, let him book his own ticket. He is unlikely to enter his own name incorrectly.

    HomeAway Unit Uninhabitable and Capital One Visa NO HELP

    Do you have any evidence that this was a "permitted" rental and that any city codes applied? Vacation rental websites are full of non-permitted rentals.

    What time of year are you looking at? Rental options in EGE vary greatly depending on time of year. In the winter they have far more cars and more dropoff options, such as pickup in EGE and dropoff in DEN with no (or little) dropoff fee. Other times of year they would have a large dropoff fee...

    Rental Car tyre punctured, PurCo contacted 2 months later to claim $550

    Rental Car tyre punctured, PurCo contacted 2 months later to claim $550

    Unfortunately, you are dealing with several issues that impact the charge you are being quoted. The rental agency did you no favor by giving you a Camaro.

    Ryanair denied compensation claim

    Ryanair has consistently terrible reviews. They are cheap and you get what you paid for, including poor customer service and denial of any claim. They may have canceled your flight because they did not have a plane, a cockpit or cabin crew, or many other reasons but they will not tell you this.
