Hello were there signs advising you of the parking restrictions?
Have Europcar paid it or referred the fine to you?
What are their admin charges?
Do Europcar have your debit card details?
The problem with this is that they will almost certainly just deduct the funds from your card. The contract that you have with them will allow them to do something like that.
Private land fines are generally very difficult to enforce and not cost effective especially not if a debtor is abroad.
£35 is entirely unreasonable for the admin here.
You could sue them to recover but that is hard to do from abroad as well.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, it is legal. Private land fines have always been lawful. They were just hard to enforce.
the problem here is that isn't the issue. The issue is that Europcar have taken over the claim for the reasons above.
If they are not going to deduct it then the chances that the private land company will sue are very low especially if you are permanently in Cyprus.
Well, it depends. There might be challenge to that but the reality is that they will just deduct and it isn't worth suing from Cyprus.
I would just ignore G24 Ltd. They are not going to sue in Cyprus.
