Rental Car Debacle (by ANCFlyer Sep 11 2007 in Non Aviation)

Rental Car Debacle - Part 2 (by ANCFlyer Nov 14 2007 in Non Aviation)

Just got a call from a lovely lady in the Executive Offices at Dollar.

Dollar has capitulated. I will be receiving a refund.

The claim was that it was an accidental 'mileage' charge, not a towing bill. Interesting that the Collection Agency they sent after me specifically said it was a towing bill.

After all this, other than the letter I wrote and the letter my attorney wrote, there is still nothing in writing from Dollar. My attorney did make a demand today for a letter from them closing out this fiasco.

So, hopefully, the Dollar Rental Car disaster is at a close. Not that anyone here but me gives two hoots . . . wink

If that letter should ever arrive, I would keep handy for awhile, to make sure nothing shows up on the good old credit report.

Maybe you should have showed up at a local Dollar location with you BAFDT and threaten to ride 'Bigfoot' over some of their cars.  biggrin 
Rental car companies have really been finding ways to squeeze more profit and income from all customers by higher rental fees, refuling fees, early/late return fees, damage fees, fees for not taking LDW and other 'insurance' and so on. This is has become worse with higher taxes and fees for renters by local and state governments, irregular demand, less deals from car makers they buy cars from, higher labor costs, higher rents, higher franchise fees, higher fuel and energy costs and so on. Just be glad you stuck to your guns (literally?) and fought them. Most of the time, customers will just not fight back as don't have the time or guts.

We all know who not to rent from now and hopefully Dollar will lose some business because of their poor business practices. Glad to know you got it worked out though.

Hertz is an solid company with mostly Ford models in their fleet, but they have very expensive rates. I routinely rent from Enterprise at LGB and PHL and have yet to have a serious problem with them; and they usually have 25-30% cheaper rates than Hertz.

In fact, a couple of weeks ago I brought a Saturn Ion that I had rented from Enterprise at LGB back about 2 hrs past the usual 24 hour rental period, and they waived the additional hours fee without any problems because I was stuck in worse than normal traffic on the 405 expressway. I didn't ask them to waive the extra fee, they just did it themselves which I thought was excellent customer service. One negative point - the Saturn Ion totally sucked. Not enough horsepower, so-so gas mileage, loud inside, weird center-mounted dashboards with cheap plastic interiors. The car ran just fine and got me where I needed to go, but not a good driving experience.

I have a Hertz #1Club Card, also a National Emerald Card. I usually rent from National . . . never had an issue. I'll stick with them.

Nope. Not worth that headache. If this had progressed into a court then that would have been the way to go.

Quoting LTBEWR (Reply 5):

The cost of renting vehicles is ridiculous. And it's not necessarily the Rental companies at fault. Local taxes are incredible as well. Anchorage has some of the highest . . .
