Re: Board layout

I may be something of a Luddite..(who needs change anyway!?), but I cant work out the meaning of the symbols on the left of each column. In the older system, I could immediately tell which threads I had read. Now I can only go on the dates and times posted. On this one there is a crawling text, a h...

Re: A22 toll options - your opinion?

Well there is some progress :roll: If all rental cars have a transponder then surely the hire companies merely have to take a card swipe from the client and any tolls are debited directly onto the card. The hire companies will have to adjust their rental fees to cover any extra costs. How much the ...

Question to Steen If somebody renting a car from Algarve Driver/YOR had their own "Pré-pago Anónimo" device (as described by Richard Henshall and on the CTT web site here http://www.ctt.pt/fectt/wcmservlet/ctt/particulares/servicos_financeiros/portagens/servicos_disponiveis/matriculas_nacionais/pre...

Re: A22 toll options - your opinion?

Customers will be charged a daily administration fee of €1.84 (€1.50 plus VAT) for a maximum of ten days. In my humble opinion it would be more logical and fair to charge a fixed administration fee if the transponder is activated, regardless of the length of the car rental. The administration cost ...

Re: A22 toll options - your opinion?

What happens if you pay 10€ but then incur 15€ of tolls? Who pays the extra? By the time the rental company knows of the overspend, it's probably too late. Your credit card would be charged. If refused the car rental company would probably be liable, hence the need to make provisions for this possi...

Re: A22 toll options - your opinion?

I have been following the toll fiasco through this forum as we visit 1 - 2 times a year & it's been very informative. I can see why the poll is being done but I think you've got to bear in mind that most people voting for option 3 have some way of paying the tolls after they have left the country b...

Re: A22 toll options - your opinion?

This is the model used by AVIS and other International companies. You pay both the transponder rental and the tolls. I am surprised that YOR want to copy the Avis business model. Next thing, YOR will be offering brand new cars, triple the price and very high charges for all extras. Hence the poll; ...

Re: A22 toll options - your opinion?

I voted for option 3 as this leaves the whole matter in my hands to act as I feel best however I wonder how the 3 euros for passing on details will be collected ? Will the hirer have to leave a credit card swipe and for how long is that valid? I wonder if Steen can tell us how many requests he has ...
