Battery drain

Ever since I picked the car up (a month ago) the battery has drained quickly. Alternator fine - putting out right volts.
Changed battery two weeks ago but same thing happens. The replacement battery was then changed in case it was faulty - but same problem.
Garage says it's because the car isn't being used enough - but it was used Saturday - and by today (Mon) the battery is flat.
There's a power drain somewhere - but I don't know where.
(There's no wiring mods anywhere).
Does this car (95 Clio Mk1 1.4 RT auto) have a diagnostic plug that a Renault dealer could check (up until now I've taken it to an independent garage)
Currently in Mark Leigh's garage:
Renault 5 Prima auto (1990) & Renault Clio RT 1.4 auto (1995)
