ah, see, did that already, but that failed.
see, i bought a voucher for $1200 (in iep of course) from aer lingus for
a 3 week car rental. hertz in chicago initially only accepted the £840
voucher for $840 - which i should have caught if i hadn't just been on a
plane for 8 hours. when i brought the car back i thought i'd gotten it
fixed, but then in february hertz charged my card $1200 for the rental
in october. i contested that and by the time the card company decided
hertz was right (?!) it was too late to contest the aer lingus charge.
essentially it's a mess. i have learned:
a) rent the car from the car company, not the airline.
b) never use hertz.
c) avoid aer lingus.
the latter i really don't want to be true. but aer lingus is being
completely unresponsive. i have contacted them by phone, by post, by
email and have gotten absolutely nothing back from them. contacting them
by phone is the worst - twice my cordless phone batteries have given up
before they answered. the way to call them is to use a handsfree phone
while you're doing something else.
