It Hurts To Rent From Hertz - $2,036 for 65 Miles

Jump to last reply

Our son didn’t do the right thing and returned his car (on time – no damages) at a different Boston Hertz facility 65 miles away from where he should have.
Hertz provided no receipt – stated everything was okay – then took an additional $2,036 out of his credit card account with no warning.
Details are in our BBB complaint - also filed with the FTC this is:
1)No receipt, communication or indication there was an issue – had our son been informed he would have taken the car back to the right facility
2)If same happens on a 1 day rental for the 2 facilities involved, the overcharge is $100 – not $2,036 – Hertz raised this only because he had a 2-month rental
3)None of this is in the rental contract, web site, emails, FAQs or any communications that Hertz provides when renting a car
4)The bill submitted by Hertz is doctored to hide an audit trail of the above
5) Estimate has forged signature.

Our claim is that this vendor is operating in a highly dishonest manner and hiding audit trails of their billing practices. The length of rental has nothing to do with additional charges for drop off and Hertz has no contractual or other written documents to this point. Our son rented a car in good faith for an extended period and it appears this is now being used against him. We are posting this to advise other travelers about this fraudulent practice.
We can provide documented evidence of fraudulent billing.
