Car rental - Did not make aware of required documents

How does Resolver work?

Explains your rights to you

You'll find no legal jargon in our simple, comprehensive consumer rights sections. Our guidance is tailored specifically for every type of issue.

Helps you prepare your emails

We provide a wide range of flexible email templates for you to adapt to your needs – just slot in the specific details for your case, and in a few short clicks your issue will be ready to go.

Creates a case file for you

Your case file is a secure online location for all important documents regarding your issue. You can upload photos, tickets, copies of receipts or external emails from before you raised your issue with Resolver.

Lets you record all your communications

One of the most important aspects of a complicated issue is keeping a record of all your correspondence regarding the complaint – Resolver does this for you automatically.

Lets you know when to escalate your complaint

If you’re not satisfied with the initial response from the organisation you have an issue with, our escalation process will let you know when you can raise your complaint to the next level of seniority and, ultimately to an ombudsman or regulator, where appropriate.

Based on resolver’s experience to date, the documents you will need are your printed out voucher, the driving licence of the named driver and a credit or debit card (usually in the name of the driver). Do be aware that, whilst you can usually pay for the booking with a debit card, the company will usually require a credit card at the time of pick up. The rental company must provide ‘clear and fair information’, which means that the documents you need to produce for hiring a car should be made very clear in your terms and conditions. If you fail to bring these documents to the rental location you may well not be able to pick up your car. You may have a remedy (compensation for lost rental time) if the required documents were not clear. If you don’t think this was made clear, resolver recommends that you contact the rental company with your concerns and, if you are unhappy with their response, that you then contact one of the bodies that deal with car rental disputes. If you booked your car direct with a hire company, the European Car Rental Conciliation Service (ECRCS) provides a free service to deal with Europe-wide disputes.
