Hertz Car Rental Deceptive add-on charges for unnecessary insurance Carlsbad California
This is another report of a Hertz employee agreeing to waive extra insurance for a rental car, and then instructing the customer to initial small print that, in fact, authorizes Hertz to add over $30 per day to the rental cost. This extra cost is NOT covered by car insurance, whether it be by the accident victim's insurance or the responsible party's insurance.
Important note: The fact that english is a second language for my wife allowed Hertz to literally trick her into initialling an agreement that was contrary to her stated wishes.
My wife clearly explained to the Hertz employee that she DID NOT WANT OR NEED EXTRA INSURANCE. She or I have rented cars, numerous times and ALWAYS waive the extra insurance. The Hertz employee instructed her to initial what he explained to be a waiver statement, when in fact, it was a statement authorizing this charge. My attempts to resolve this matter by phone proved fruitless, as the manager of this store refused to returm my calls.
Our credit union attempted to retreive the money from Hertz. However, after Hertz sent a copy of the fine print with my wife's initials written over text, our credit union had to back down from the attempt. This appears to be a scam that is not representative of just one Hertz facility. We lost over $300 because of the deception that is openly allowed by Hertz management.
