After returning the car, Hertz (why Hertz ??? I would like to know) sent me an invoice 30 euros extra (by email) for an extra day while I returned the car a day before and for a border crossing when I did not pass. So account debits without having had time to contest. Frankly not correct.

We reserved a car for 4 days. We called on the spot to be sure that the car had snow tires, we were certified that it was. Once there, the category we had chosen had no snow tires, which meant that there was a surplus of 80 euros ... Shame next time I will take the shuttle, it will cost me less.

Pickup in no problem. Right at the station. Golf size ordered. Touran automatic received. Unfortunately totally dirty inside and outside. That is the only thing that is to complain about.
