[Resolved] Carflexi — rental car charges
I recently rented a car through CarFlexi for one week at a price of $206. I paid CarFlexi $16.27 up front. They emailed a document that said "The amount of USD 189 is payable at the rental desk. Any additional extras or Supploementary insurances purchased locally are payable at the rental desk."
I didn't purchase any extras and was shocked that my amount due at Fox Rent A Car was $455.41. The agent said the additional fees were airport taxes and $150 deposit. I had no choice at this point other than to pay.
I have disputed the charges through my CC company and have called both Fox and CarFlexi. Turns out that on the doc they sent to me it says "Your rental excludes: all taxes and fees. Third party insurance/RLP+SLI, Fuel, Highway tools." They know what they are doing is deceitful and trickery. I've now read yelp reviews and I'm not alone in this scam!
