These are bait and switch bandits, avoid like theCons:I booked a car online for 13 pounds a day for 10 days. On arrival I was told I would have to pay an additional 13.25 per day basic insurance. As it was nearly midnight I told them I would take the car for 1 day. When I returned the car I heard them doing the same con on another customer. I rented a better car for less at Europecar just down the road.Reviewed 8 Aug 2016
