Budget Rent-A-Car Complaint - Cabo Mexico car rental
MEXICO -- The Budget car rental office by the Los Cabos airport in Mexico is scamming tourists by forcing them to buy expensive but useless liability insurance. With a straight face these thieves force tourists to take out additional insurance, a new liability insurance above and beyond all the insurances you can decline because your own insurance or American Express covers, and it costs MORE THAN THE COST OF THE CAR RENTAL!!!!! Every other person there was complaining of the same problem, coming and going, at the hotel, and at the airport. It was not something we could walk away form as we had PRE-PAID as part of a PACKAGE. When we returned, they forced us to sign or they would not shuttle us to the airport and we'd miss our flight (no taxis are on the dirt road of this place!). It was a terrible experience knowing you are being fleeced by an American company that you booked in the U.S. and paid for in the U.S. I will always have a very negative impression of Budget forever!
We rented from Dollar several times and never had this problem or any mention of this scam insurance.
RECOMMENDATION: NEVER EVER RENT FROM BUDGET IN MEXICO ESPECIALLY CABO!!!!
