Free doubling of car rental days (50% success)
« on: October 10, 2017, 07:11:46 PM »
Not guaranteeing that it works, but so far a few times successful.

Steps I toke:
Rented with www.xrentalcars.com
(The rates are prepaid)
After rental period (e.g. 1 week), you ask if you could keep it for another week.
They should say, something like. Okay, you will pay that same amount again after the rental.
Upon returning the car, when handing back the car keys, just casually inform that all is okay, mentioning that you kept the car clean and no crashes.
Normally when they glance at their pc they, will just see that it's a prepaid rate and no longer will you need to pay.

Should be discussed in the moral thread because this is morally wrong.

This is almost as ingenious as the Starbucks method.

You can tell us about the Staples method for free reams of paper. But that may require TimT-esque search skills.

Or, you can just use the trusty "Starbucks method" for 100% off. What you do is go into Staples and order TWO reams of paper...

This works everywhere, whats the big deal. At home depot, you take 2 gallons of paint to checkout, and the rep scans one. Then you put the second one back in your cart and say "you just scanned the paint"
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

Please don't compare.

I could drop the car keys in a designated postbox, yet I go into the agency, and they look into the file before saying that it's all good.

I realised that by chance.

He's making a valid point...

I paid for week 1
I extended for week 2 and agreed to pay extra
Rental agency forgot to ask me for the extra money on return.

I didn't tell them they already charged me or anything of the sort...

agreed. I had a somewhat similar story when they added on to my reservation that j should be charged  for underage (15/20euro per day)and when returning the car I made no mention of it and wasn't asked to pay..
