resolved to the customer's satisfaction
We went online to book a car for our use in Las Vegas this week. The online tool estimated $230.89 for the week. When we went to pick up the car, the contract they wanted me to sign was for over $750.
We declined to rent the car and left without a car. We took a shuttle to our hotel only to find that we couldn't use our credit card because Payless had put a hold for $767.49 on it. VISA informaed me that I would have to call the merchant and have them call VISA to have the hold removed. I called and called the Payless branch and kept being put on hold before I could say anything. Finally I got through and asked to talk to a manager. The manager would not talk to me and told th e woman I was talking to to get my information and she would call me back in 30 minutes. One of the pieces of information they asked for was the number for VISA merchant services (how would I know this - they're the merchant!!). So here I wait in Las Vegas unable to use my credit card hoping that I'll get a call back.
I should point out that I did not sign a contract and told the person at the counter that I did not want the car and to cancel the rental yet he put a hold on my card anyway.
I will never you Payless Car Rentals again!
