Dispute your card if it was their fault

Uber to your destination and have Dollar deliver the car in the morning?

solid idea but i am back already
and finding an uber at midnight for 7 pax at a not so busy airport not really much of a choice
was wondering if anyone ever had such an experience and if they were able to get compensation to offset the diff

priceline credited original prepaid charge after i filed a complaint (and disputed on cc)
after that eventually cleared, i emailed priceline executive office with a request to investigate and reimburse the new charges
not much of an executive office but some overseas operator took the case and handled
asked for some documentation (like new rental agreement, etc) which i provided
received an email now that i will be credited for the difference of the original charge and the new charge

never hurts to inquire nicely and firmly.
