Complaint Review: Budget/Avis
Budget/Avis Car rental agent uses deceptive wording to extort extra fees Springfield Ilinoise Nationwide
*Author of original report: Insults are not necessary
*Consumer Comment: There's Something Better To Do!
I rented a car in the Springfield Ilinoise airport. I travel for a living so it's crazy this happened to me! While renting my car the agent never discussed extras like they always do! She was very professional and I was actually pleasantly surprised to not be getting the hard sell for all the extras! The last thing she said to me before I signed was...you accept total responsibility for insurance etc. I did think when I got in my car how we didn't have the usual pushy sales pitch. Opened up my envelope to read over my contract . Surprise my envelope was empty. Again I should have gone back in that instant! Clearly I was wrong to not read the fine print and just initial several places! She was definitely professional! A professional at collecting her commission based income! I had $250 in extras!!! I called the location and filed a report with the National Budget office. Of course I got no Where! I paid double for my rental! Warning to anyone renting a car! The agents make commission on selling the insurance and extras! Be careful sadly a few are making a career out of ripping you off!
