As some posts in a closed thread on this forum state, the 'Stazione di Servizio' at Aeroporto Galileo Galilei in Pisa practices highway robbery. The station does not take credit cards, and also does not take debit cards. Only cash is accepted, and you are NOT WARNED BEFOREHAND that there will be NO CHANGE from anything you put in the machine. The only English the attendant knows appears to be 'no change' when you ask him about the change.
This scam affects everyone at this station and apparently others, and thus the car rentals at PISA AIRPORT should ALL warn every client about this scam: we should be told to fill up well before you reach the airport, unless you want to bring a bunch of small bills or coins with you.We were quite disappointed (and law enforcement should also be) that our 50 Euro note bought only 32.00 of fuel and the other ± 18 Euros was simply 'donated' to the cheating operators of that station. How can this kind of cheating the customer be good for Italy?
