    975.

    The day before leaving France we had to pay that because the man threatened my husband with the police if he didn't. We got in touch with the European Consumer Centre to see if they could help and they've finally got back to us saying that because my husband signed the form to take the van in and out there's nothing they can do.

    Yep, just one slimy one though. I went in there crying, so he reduced it by 200, but we had to pay because he was going to hold onto the 1000 cheque that my husband had left as security before hiring the van. He didn't scratch it, we only had the van to take a couple of parcels to the post office.

    It's a huge amount of money that was just stolen.

    We thought we were renting from a chain supermarket, but it turns out they're all franchises and can do what they want. I'd never knowingly rent from an independent for that reason. Their head office basically told us it's nothing to do with them and won't respond or anything now. It's a huge supermarket brand in France as well.

    I can't stop being gutted, it's not just the money it's the fact I can't go and kick the man and it's van.

    Car hire companies in general are crooks

    I always get the excess insurance with a different company

    Yeah my husband wasn't aware he could get excess insurance because with Hertz it's only ever been a couple of hundred pounds. He handed over the cheque without me knowing, or I'd have questioned it. Since that we've always got the insurance and wouldn't go without it after that experience. It's an expensive lesson to learn.

    It's a real bummer breezy

    I felt the same last year when I was involved in a bump in a hire car. No-one could even talk to me for a few hours, I was seething.

    You should do something today to cheer yourself up. Treat yourself
