My car was poorly so I went to the airport with my partner in his car, he leaves it long term whilst away . I had booked a months hire car online.
I lost my credit cards & Record were the only company that advertised that they accept cash for hire cars. I'd used them previously so imagined there wouldn't be a problem. When I arrived to collect the car (with my pre-booked voucher) they refused me the car, saying they couldn't deal with cash & I needed to have a credit card & it must be in my name! - Don't always believe everything they write on websites is my advice.
Thankfully I couldn't get hold of my partner, so I just took his car back out of long term until he came back, it was too late for him to object by then!
