Avis apologises for trying to slap a 'Brexit' tax on hire car rented by UK professor

The Telegraph reports that one of the world’s biggest car rental companies has apologised for trying to levy an apparent “Brexit tax” on a British member of the House of Lords who was on holiday in the south of France.

Lord Krebs, a professor from Oxford University, said an Avis worker tried to charge him a Euro 2.57 “Brexit tax” when he returned a pre-paid rental car in Marseilles.

Prof Krebs, a former chairman of the Food Standards Agency, told the Telegraph he had felt “outraged” to be asked to pay the tax by a manager in the Avis outlet in Marseilles Marignane airport.
