Richard Barnes wishes he hadn’t rented the car.
The vehicle, which he reserved for on a business trip in Atlanta, was absolutely fine. It’s what happened afterwards that makes his blood boil.
Barnes picked up the vehicle at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport. He drove it to the Hyatt in Atlanta. The next day, he returned it to the airport without a scratch.
“Four months later I received a bill for $12,000 for an accident and damage to the car I had rented,” he says.
Yep, $12k for a rental car returned undamaged. I recently wondered how careful you have to be in order to not get scammed as a consumer.
But there’s another side to this issue: How careful do businesses think we are?
