Question Sounds like immobiliser!

My Clio(1200) T reg was off the road for a couple of months and the battery went flat. Had the car 4 years. Nobody told me that when battery is removed (for charging) the immobiliser wont let you start car!
Had to have car towed to Renault Dealers in Edinburgh. Found several other Clios there with same problem.
As far as I know the keys have to be reprogrammed - costing 100-150 for a few minutes work. Local garage could programme other makes of car keys but not the Renault. Is this a rip-off?? Anyone else had this problem ? Ian
