Bad Rental Agreement with Avis/Budget

Im a valid member of AARP and i used Budget to rent a vehicle for a few days while my vehicle was being repaired and when the repair to my personal vehicle was completed early i returned there rental vehicle 2 days early.. When i requested they give me back credit for the un-used days they refused to honor the un-used days i did not use the vehicle.. This is a horrible policy by Budget and AARP and it leaves me no choice to contact the better business bureau and my local congressmen of this policy.
Thank You

Hi there, here to help! We certainly understand your concern regarding Budget Rental. Please note, price per day may change based on the amount of days for the rental. For example, the provider may offer a week (7 days) at a discounted rate whereas 5 days would cost more per day.

Discounts apply to specified periods. The rates are lower than per se other lengths of use. If I rented a vehicle for 4 days, I would not expect a discount if I returned day 2.


Perhaps this is what happened in this circumstance? Perhaps a daily rate replacing "un-used days" in multi-day rate?


We all need to remember awful behaviour has become "normal"; that to me needs to stop. We need to remember when we trusted each other "way back"...


And to be honest in my humble opinion, your local congressman and mine are spineless autocrats, chosen by other #dotard affiliates.
