Budget Rental Car - Mc Arthur Airport Budget Rent-a-Car Unfair Cleaning Fee
MCARTHUR AIRPORT, NEW YORK -- Has anyone else rented from the McArthur Airport Budget Rent A Car and received a notice of a cleaning fee much later - after the car was returned.
This happened to me - I returned the car in early September, and made sure to have it professionally cleaned beforehand as I had heard about capricious charges such as this. When I returned the car, I asked the attendant if the car was in acceptable condition and he agreed it was, and I took pictures of the interior of the car.
A month later I was assessed a $250 cleaning fee !
Following up with Budget and my credit card company provided to be an exhaustive and pointless process.
I hate to be the suspicious type. Can anyone advise me how I could avoid such charges in the future ?
