This was for motorhome relocation with Apollo,when we have these holidays/roadtrips they do imprint on credit card don`t take money once we complete they release imprint back to our bank ,Yes we do sign paperwork before we take possession of motorhome hope this is understandable
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

yes this very clear. Thank you.

Did that agreement have any notation about fees applying ?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
this a part of normal rental agreement
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 8 months ago
Ok this is where the issues may be for the charge that has applied. A key step to determine if the charge is wrong is to review that agreement in relation to the fees that apply. The provider cannot charge fees unless they are disclosed properly.I have sent you a special offer to talk on the phone if you prefer to make it easier on this important matter?
