Ace Car Rental Complaint - Buyer Be Ware of this Scam Company!
DALLAS/COSTA RICA, TEXAS -- Set up a normal rental in Central America, they faxed me a confirm of price which I took with me. Arrived to out sourced rental car company Hola Car rental, they attempted to increase the price by $100 totally disregarding the confirmed price I had from ACE, leaving me stranded in remote area off site late in day. Forcing me to return to airport in attempt to find another rent car company in foreign country at night. Not a good thing but I will not be extorted for money. Called the company upon return to US they had little comment, not even a "Sorry" this happened. They are a Scam in my book.
This sort of thing happens frequently in Latin America, Gringos are stranded, don't speak Spanish, scared and thus will pay the increase. I did not, I have been here before. Leaving tourists stranded in remote area at nite is BAD Business, this is a SCAM,. Beware!
