      I wonder if Avis staff argue with each other and have to get the pilot to kick them both of the plane? linky

        Friend who works for a competitor certainly mentioned a lot of tension. Not a happy work environment.

          A spokesman at Avis said the charge had been added when Sterling fell after the EU referendum.
          They admitted that other drivers could have been charged the fee.
          A firm spokesman later said the fee was a system error and it was a 'miscommunication' by staff to call it a Brexit tax.
          So there you are, it was to adjust for the pound being down against the Euro, and it was a system error.
          Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

            Avis are on my "do not touch with a sh1tty stick list" after they charged me $650 for a late return penalty at LAX. The planned return date was Sept 12 2001. Anyone care to remember what happened the day before?

                Close, but not a winner this time.

                  Although the death rate was probably fairly close...
