A word of warning about Avis car hire at Exeter airport. We arrived last Saturday, having booked a Vauxhall Astra (or equivalent). The car transporter was late, so we were updgraded to a BMW 320d. Great. However, the thing that really irked me (having already paid £250-odd for 8 days' car hire) was that the excess was £850 and to reduce this to £100 was going to cost me £17 per day! I've hired lots of cars over the years and never had an excess this high. Naturally, I told them to 'do one' and luckily nothing happened to the car. Has anyone recommened a car hire company in Exeter?
