The airport was great but do not hire a car from Avis/Budget at this airport.

I recently hired a car through Avis/Budget at Nantes airport.

They applied an extra €275 charge for a "scratch/mark" that was already on the car!!!!!!

Only that I had photographic evidence/dated - to show the mark was on the car BEFOre I used it - was I able to get the €275 refunded.

My advice is to keep clear of Avis /Budget at Nantes airport as they will try to cheat you out of money on marks that are already on the car.

It was extremely upsetting and should not be happening in an honest business.
