Warning - Prepayment Penalties at AARP Partner AvisBudget

207 Views
Message 1 of 1

Beware AARP members that are considering renting at Avis or Budget (now the same company).

 

AvisBudget offers AARP members "special discounts" for prepayment of a rental.

 

But there is no mention that you will forfeit any and all refunds associated with changes in the rental.  They only let you know this after you have prepaid and they only then send you the Terms and Conditions to you with the confirmation email. 

 

If you need to return the vehicle early for any reason you will receive no refund. The station manager at SFO told me "we will not refund you a dime, even if there's a death in the family". 

 

AARP should reconsider their relationship with AvisBudget and, at a minimum, require that they fully disclose the refund policy in the Terms and Conditions on "AARP Discount" website.
