Response 1:

Dear sir/madam,

I am writing to with regard to the damage done to the car I hired from your company.

My husband and I decided on Italy as our holiday destination- for obvious reasons- and we chose your car-hire firm for obvious reasons, as well. Whoever we'd ask would suggest hiring a car from your company- The Olive Track- situated two blocks away from our hotel, which, in turn, is situated near the South Beach. We were far from disappointed after inspecting your car for ourselves. Upon inspection of your cars, we chose a sleek Mercedes, as it was just the two of us.

Yesterday, while driving to the spa, I was idling at a four-way, waiting for my signal to turn green, keeping a dutifully vigilant eye on my surroundings. In my rearview mirror, I could see a jeep speeding behind, showing little signs of slowing down before reaching the four way I was idling at. I suddenly felt a large impact resonate through the entire car. Suddenly looking back, I saw that the speeding jeep had just bumped into the rear of the car. I immediately exited the car to inspect the damage and have a word with the man in the jeep. Upon inspection, I saw that the rear bumper of the vehicle was half-off and badly crushed under the impact on the jeep- which was unharmed, along with its driver.

I called the car-towing company as well as your firm and had a word with the Jeep owner, who paid for the repairs to be done on the Mercedes and also gave me a lift back to my hotel.

I hope you are satisfied with the reasonable outcome of this situation.

Kind regards,
