OK. Advised I would receive my payment invoice within the hour. Two days later, no payment on my email. When dropping off it was examined by the attendant like he was expecting damage. He noticed two minor marks about 1 inch and he made an issue of it.

Picked up Avis car at 24 East London Street, Edinburgh. Ordered an automatic (Volkswagon or equal) and they had a Peugeot sedan ready. No hassle check-in once I found my Passport. They tried to upsell insurance, but I had coverage through Carrentals.com. Put 750 miles on the Peugeot driving all around Scotland for two weeks. Car handled very well and returned the car at the Glasgow Airport. No hassle return. I was more than pleased!

First you are asked to fill a crude paper with your address, 2 (two!) phone numbers, and the name of you employer... ?? Then the explanation about coverage is confusing and misleading - you have to really insist in order to decline all additional coverage. Total check-out took about 30 minutes which is way too long (I was the only one there!)
