We booked the car through Kayak for a Europcar. We received an email from European to say that they were looking forward to see us at Merthyr Road Tredegar. This was correct. We then received an email from QEEQ who said they were looking forward to seeing us in Merthyr Tydfil Downtown to pick up the vehicle. Tredegar and Merthyr Tydfil are 10 miles apart. This was very confusing and QEEQ were not helpful at all. I fortunately picked up my my vehicle as originally scheduled in Tredegar with Europcar who were excellent
