How the scam works:
(with video below) You come across an ad promoting super-low rates for a rental car service you have barely heard of. It looks good, but you just want to make sure it really is $50 cheaper per day and call the number.
They will confirm the price is right, but when you get there your car is unavailable. This is a common scam pulled by centers that are located far away from populated areas or airports as the customer has wasted a lot of time getting there and doesn't want to go somewhere else.
That's when unwanted upgrades and insurance add-ons are stuck to your bill, making the final invoice even more expensive than it would have been at reputable rental companies. So what's to do?
Watch the video below to learn great tips on how to get the best deals on rental cars and find cheap car hire.
