Unfortunately, Rentalcars.com doesn't have a live chat function or social media pages for you to reach out to the customer service team in any other way.
Note that as Rentalcars.com is a third party vendor, the cancellation policies will vary from booking to booking. Review your confirmation email for details on your booking's cancellation.
If you don't show up for your car reservation or do not meet the reservation requirements (too young), you will automatically receive a full refund.
If you choose to return your car early, Rentalcars.com does not issue a refund for the unused dates. However, there are no additional charges for returning a car early.
If you're fighting what you feel is unfair car damage charges, it will be extremely helpful if you have pictures of the car's condition when you returned the vehicle to the company. Or, pictures from the beginning of your rental, if you believe you're being charged for pre-existing damages.
