Excessive Loss of use charges. The rental car was in an accident (act of god--hit raccoons on the freeway) and we called our insurance that night to file a claim. Avis picked up the car on the 6th. We're well aware that we need to pay for the damage to the car and are more than willing to do so. However, my husband's credit card was charged $1882.00 for the time the car was out for repairs and the loss of use fees were charging us for a 26 day rental. I find it hard to believe that it took Avis 26 days to repair the car. I am more than happy to pay loss of use for the actual repair time, but I feel that this is highly excessive. Can you help?
