Complaint Review: GEICO
GEICO GEICO INSURANCEGEICO AUTO INSURANCE No Reimbursement for Under 25 Rental Fee New Jersey
I am 24, a full time graduate student and a full time software engineer.
My car was struck by a GEICO insured. They admitted fault.
I rented a car while mine was being fixed. It took 19 days to get the parts and return my car back to me.
The only way I could rent a car was by agreeing to pay a $27/day "Under 25 fee". Without paying this fee, no rental car agenciy would rent me a car. Obviously I needed a rental.
GEICO said that this fee was reimburseable in telephone conversations on 6/2/14, 6/14/14 and 7/7/14. But on 7/25 they offered to settle the rental bill without paying ANY of the under 25 fees. I am currently out $548.91.
I have filed a complaint with the New Jersey Insurance Commission.
The Geico Claims Agent insisted I should have had someone over the age of 25 rent the car for me to avoid this fee. I believe, but am not certain, that this would constitute a fraudulent act.
