Dollar rent a car complete rip off - Damages to vehicle upon return!
Damages to vehicle prior to Renting it....... - Complaint
TAMPA, FLORIDA -- Rented a car 10/12 - from Tampa airport - walked around the vehicle and saw damage to the lower front spoiler - roof dent - no big deal - must have been reported thinking they wouldn't rent me a car without them inspecting the car and noting the problems. Left with the vehicle and returned 4 days later - arrive at the airport in the A.M. - inspector upon return said there's damage to the lower spoiler 'yes it was there and I informed her there was also damage to the roof (dent) and door" (door had a very small see through sticker attached) which she didn't notice. She asked me to fill out a form stating I didn't damage the vehicle which I filled out(minding 16,000 miles on vehicle). We'll today got a phone call from a Representative 10/19/12 - stating I owe them for damages above. I didn't take out xtra insurance - so they want it from me. I hope they have video of me walking around the vehicle and noting damage, (before leaving with the rental) besides a photo I took of vehicle which shows the damage. In any-event I have read numerous posts from others on other WEB sights claiming the same SCAM by their company Dollar Rent A Car. if I paid for xtra insurance through them I'm sure I would have never heard a word...So they could pass it one the someone else.
