On the 11th day of Christmas my true love said to me: “Why it’s YOUR fault, even when it’s NOT your fault - I’m talking about hiring a car!”

On the 7th day of Christmas my true love said to me: “I’ve seen this article about how extras can double the cost of a hire car. Let’s make sure we don’t get caught out.”
