I rented a Sixt auto in 2016 at the Manchester airport. At the counter I was told that I had to post a credit card with a limit to cover the auto or buy their insurance. I told the agent that would negate my insurance with Mastercard. She was insistent. Being tired and not wanting to argue I acquiesced. Later in the Lake District the left front tire developed a bubble in the sidewall with no visible outside damage. I called the company hotline and the next morning a driver with a flatbed truck came and picked me and the car up and drove to another town to replace the tire. It took 3 - 4 hours out of my vacation plans and at the end I had to pay the 80 pound bill for the tire. We were on our way with no further problems through drop off where I took pictures in the lot after Sixt inspected and I payed for the rental. A few weeks later after being home in the US, I get a damage bill from Sixt. I discussed it and wrote back that there was no damage to the auto. I never heard anything more until late last month while on vacation I get a call while my phone was off in the middle of the night and an email with the bill for 156.5 pounds. They claim I still owe them for damage.
