Consumers should have the right to start and finish car rental bookings on any national website of the companies within the EU.
I n August, the European Commission made public a letter sent to the CEOs of six international car rental companies ( Sixt, Enterprise, Goldcar, Europcar, Hertz ja Avis) , asking them to end practices preventing consumers from accessing best available prices on the basis of their country of residence.
They reaffirmed their commitment to respect the principle of non-discrimination in the EU Single Market and provided detailed explanations for their pricing policies. For example, they will not use automatic rerouting following the identification of the consumer's IP address.
