Does every car rental agency charge this fee?

Jump to last reply

I thought an admin fee would be charged if I did NOT pay a ticket, but I was surprised to find out that Hertz charges you $50 whether you pay the parking ticket or not. I also find it extremely dubious that tiny Cisternino, Italy notified Hertz in the one day it took me to pay the fine. Of course renters are going to make errors when driving in a foreign country, and to have diligently paid the fine and then be charged in addition is annoying. Do all rental agencies use these fines? I was so disgusted with the way Hertz handled the situation (aside from the fee itself, the customer service was horrid), I am thinking of using a different company next time--but if it makes no difference, then I guess I am under their thumb.
