    I have booked a fly drive with VH.
    My thoughts - it was cheaper to book a flydrive with VH than the flight alone with VA.
    I booked the flydrive with the thought of not picking up the car. When I filled in the online form, I knocked off the fully inclusive insurance and replaced with basic liability.....saving about 180.

    DH has just told me that VH rang today and I need to contact them about the car hire
    Do I fess up and tell them I'm not picking up the car?

    I wouldnt because unless you take 2 parts (I think) like flght+car hire, they cant do the package pricing.

    So I'd politely refuse the insurance that theyre bound to be offering you :) and then just dont collect it when you get there

    They're bound to think I'm nuts as it would cost more to take out the insurance once there. The site, after changing to the basic insurance says

    Note: for the Basic package, there are compulsory insurances and taxes that will be payable locally

    Doesnt matter if they think you're nuts though does it :)

    They wont charge you those insurances because theyre payable locally which you wont pay because you wont pick up.

    They'll just be out to convince you to upgrade the insurance. Just quick/firm "no thanks this is the way I've always done it. I know about the compulsories once I get there. thanks anyway bye"

    Turns out they wanted to make sure I knew that I hadn't got the car hire for the exact amount of days we are away - I said we had friends joining us part way through the trip and we were all using their car. I'll never go to Heaven
