GetyourskatesonforanewwaytoseeWembleyStadium Joingames not gangs, kids urged MPwronglybilledfordamage FORMER transport secretary Ruth Kelly today told of her battle for compensation after a costly car hire mix-up in France. The Labour MP accused Europcar of unfairly billing her family more than 1,000 for damage to a vehicle. The ex-Cabinet minister, her husband Derek, and four children, aged six to 12, went on holiday to Provence last month and hired a seven-seater Volkswagen Touran. But less than an hour after picking up the car both right tyres went flat. It was a bit scary. I dont know what the cause of it was, Ms Kelly said. Europcar arranged for a taxi to take them to their holiday home and for a replacement car and told Ms Kelly there would be no extra charge. But on the familys return to London she found an invoice includ- ing just over 1,180 for damage. She said: I feel I have been fleeced. Ms Kelly also said she was charged for petrol even though she returned the car full. She said she sent Europcar seven emails and spoke to them twice but was not satisfied. Europcar has now apolo- gised and said it will refund the damage and petrol charges, which were made in error, and waive the rental fee. You wont find it cheaper... But if you do well refund the difference PLUS give you 10% OFF the lower price. Now thats a price promise! Terms and conditions apply. See in store for details.
