Advantage Rent A Car Complaint - I was ripped off by Advantage at Cabo airport (SJD) Mexico
I found a weekly car rental in Cabo Mexico thru Priceline. They quoted me for my one week rental with Advantage a Weekly Rate (Estimated) of $187.82. ADVANTAGE RENT A CAR LOS CABOS BCS - LOS CABOS BC billed me for $224.33 by a slight-of-hand trick, or maore honestly, by fraud. The manager at the Cabo Advantage explained to me that the company (Hertz of Mexico) required him to convert the charge from US$ to peso using an (artificial) exchange rate of 13.9 pesos/$. Then they billed my credit card that amount (in pesos). My credit card company converted the amount into US$ using the international conversion rate, which was 12.1 peso/$. By that slight of hand, Advantage charged me $224.33 for a car that Priceline estimated would cost $187.82. That's fraud. Advantage and Priceline should stop doing business with Advantage in Mexico until it stops fraudulent practices. Also, if you rent a car in Mexico, make sure that they use the actual peso to $ conversion rate. Otherwise, your estimated cost is meaningless.
