Thank you. Do you have a particular favourite among the Zest suppliers?

I have used either Drive for Fun or mostly Travel Rent which I think has been "taken over" by LC Rent who I am renting from in September.

Following posts regarding Zest on here I have just got a comparison quote and it is coming out €400 more than the booking I have with YOR for August. I did book back in January though.

At the start of the year YOR hadn't put their prices up but have now. Try getting a new quote from YOR for the same details and see how they compare.

I booked a car with YOR at the beginning of the year and when Ryanair changed the time of my flight by 45 minutes I went in and edited my booking. It didn't make any difference to the number of days I had the car for nor any out of hour charges but the 45 min change would have added 200 euros to the booking.

Yes I did have the same issue when I had a change of flight time so i am sure you are right Farol.

They do price match though except in July & August so would be interesting if they matched prices with such a big difference!

To be fair to Algarve Driver, I had the same issue as I had to amend the dates of my stay later this month. When I saw that the cost had increased, I contacted them and Steen kindly agreed to stand by the previously quoted rate. :D

What is the best way to contact Steen? I have sent an e-mail without reply 1 week ago.

I suppose it depends what you have already tried. You can PM him via this forum, email him at carvoeiro.com and email him at algarvedriver.com.

If you are wanting to get in touch about a car rental booking you could also try YOR itself.

Yes Steen did that for me too! That is one reason I stick with YOR booked through this website. Never had any issues with YOR.
