Freakin' Thieves

Did ya know that if you rent a car through teh internet using, say, Hertz, you can give the nice rental company folks your flight number so that they can make sure you get your rental car when your flight arrives? That's massive cool, especially if - again hypothetically speaking - your flight was scheduled to land dangerously close to the far end of the opening hours of said enterprise. That way you can get the service you've procured even if your flight is delayed, or if your flight arrives with zero time between touchdown and closing of the rental car service.

What the Hertz - and other rental agencies, I'm sure - web pages do not inform you of, however, is that they have an additional fee of 300 NOK + 25% tax if you use their connect-to-flight service. What the hell? When you shop around for prices at different rental agencies, you want to know all the costs so that you can decide for yourself which company you want to use. For all I know, the other agencies might use higher rates for this service, but that ain't the point - especially seeing as how the opening hours vary between agencies.

Freakin' thieves!

Is that even legal? I think they have to give you the total prize.

I'll be sure to ask them when we pick up the car. Specifically, I'll ask them after the car selection has been made, so I don't end up with a Renault Megane like last time. Cause that sucked something fierce
