For the last 3 years we've booked our hire car online via the TFS airport link and we always seem to end up with the same car hire supplier (who are based at the airport). They're cheap and have okish cars, but they have LOADS of hidden extras - which we're wise to now, but it is annoying and the last thing you want to haggle about when you've just landed. My pet hate hidden extra is the car full of fuel and return empty - with a huge mark-up for the cost of the fuel, which you can buy for half the price at the garage close to the airport. Even though we do a lot of travelling around when we visit, we find it impossible to use all the fuel, so they end up making loads of money off us (and everyone else no doubt!). I've had enough of this particular supplier and want to book with someone else.
I wondered if anyone on here has experience of and could recommend a more honest car hire supplier who is a bit more up front about extras and doesn't have the ridiculous rip-off full/empty fuel policy and hidden expensive insurance costs. We would want to collect at the airport and return to the airport at the end of our holiday. As we have a young child with us, we don't want the hassle to be taken offsite to complete paperwork both times and so it would need to be one of the suppliers with an office in the arrivals hall.
Any help would be very gratefully received.
