So on my way back yesterday a huge semi truck sped past me and kicked up sme gravle on the hood. Well I ended up getting a s good chip on the windshield. I felt good though that I paid the xtra money knowing I would be covered. We'll upon returning the car today they told me I owed an additional $300 for the damage of the chip. I asked to speak to a manager who told me well you got our insurance but you have a deductible of 300 dollars so you have to pay that. I explained to him that my service guy Michael told me with getting the extra damage waiver I wouldn't have to worry about anything and that he never told me about a deductible. I even told them I've rented cars in the past, gotten a chip on the car and never owed them a dime. Well the manager was rude and refused to do anything.
Meanwhile two customers next me both got cars with the same insurance ploicy and the sale clerk never once told them about the 300 deductible. I don't understand what the point is in getting their insurance when it does nothing. The manager even had the odacity to tell me that they don't make any money on selling the consumer their insurance policy. I feel ripped off and if they would have told me about the deductible when I went to rent the car I never would have rented it in the first place, would have just used my own personal car. Now I have to fight with their claims people because this guy Michael, who has only been with budget didn't do his job. Never use them again! It's a scam.
