Your Money Your Future: What are your rights when things go wrong?
Retirement can often be the trigger for a big purchase, whether it's a new kitchen or a brand-new car.

Sarah spoke with Sylvia Rook, who's lead officer for fair trading at the Chartered Trading Standards Institute; Martyn James, who's from the complaints website Resolver; and Kate Jobson, who's a consumer law expert at Citizens Advice.

The Competition and Markets Authority has recently brought in new rules for car rental firms to make their pricing clearer for customers. Hidden costs, such as insurance and young driver surcharges, are often not included and customers should be given a clear "drive away" price. So are companies sticking to the rules? Share Radio's Jinan Rahma has been finding out.

This is allegedly costing us £40 a year extra in insurance costs which has caused the government to decided to clamp down on fake claims. Joining Sarah to talk about what this means to the public are, Amanda Stretton, from Confuesd.com and David Williams, technical director of AXA Insurance
