I have rented cars in Ireland since 1999 at least 4 to 6 times a year and usually have used Hertz. I decided on this trip to try Europcar as their rate was fairly cheap. I found out why when I picked up the car in Dublin. I was told my AE "WorldPoints" card would not work as a CDW waiver that it had to be a MasterCard or Visa "WorldPoints" card. The rate of course did not include CDW coverage which I was then forced to take at 14 euro per day for a 14 day rental and then told that I must also take the TPW, Theft Protection Waiver, insurance for another 7 euro per day. B.S. I have never had to take the TPW from Hertz, Enterprise, SIXT, Thrifty, National or Dooley car rentals in Europe. I told the thief at the counter to forget the rental I would go get a car elsewhere and he told me to go ahead he was going to charge my credit card as it was guaranteed. I will never ever use these theives again as I sent an emai to Euopcar and was told it was forwarded to their home office where nothing was ever heard from.
