Re: Friendly warning about booking Europcar via Easyjet

As a rule of thumb, NEVER book any services together with your flight, it's almost always more expensive (there was a time when Ebookers had a flat 50 CHF discount on any flight+car rental.. you could add a 1 day car rental in DXB or any other cheap place for like 15 CHF and get the flight 35 CHF off.. somehow that offer quickly vanished )

Same for hotels offered after you've booked a flight - you'll pay more than finding the hotel directly through Trivago and the like. And you don't get any "protection", its a different contract.

Only package holidays (Pauschalreisen in German) are sometimes worth it. You're getting sometimes a better deal out of them, if the whole package is what you're looking for as compared to having booked everything individually.
