Car rental extreme anxiety:( and rant:(
I have a rental car reservation I am picking up tomorrow and am full of anxiety based on my last experience at Enterprise. I had been renting cars, on a false promise from my insurance agent's wife at the office, with the understanding I was told I was covered under my brother's insurance on his car since we both lived in the same household. Well, apparently she was wrong. It all started with an sales agent at Enterprise I had never met before.
He stuck me in an economy Aveo instead of a compact I had requested. I left in the POS and before I got home, he called me telling me I wasn't covered by State Farm and I needed the coverage. I had no time to return to the agency so I verbally agreed and drove to our bus trip pick-up. The car was so,so noisy I couldn't hear the radio over the loud engine noise and it spent a quarter tank in fuel in 20 miles. I wound up using only 100 miles instead of my usual 300 miles since I didn't want to spend $50 going an extra 100 miles. I was basically lied to being told all Aveos were noisy and the credit card will only cover the PAI(personal accident insurance) $3/day and not the CDW(collision damage waiver) of $17/day. I have since found out my Visa covered the CDW and not the PAI. It was a total loss of a trip rental and I have since let the credit card dispute window close. I took video of the noisy engine on the highway which I doubted I could share due to my technological difficulties and they took the original contract back which was my proof.
I plan on taking the personal liability and maybe the PAI tomorrow, but must reject the CDW to be covered by the VISA. I am worried they will demand a higher amount for deposit than I have available on the Visa card. This was another thing this jerk did to me last time was raise the deposit amount from $250 to $300 saying it was standard now. I am so pissed right now and am expecting a battle tomorrow. Once I remove the rental car from the property, I might walk back and use a lot of MFs. How do I deal with them?
I am afraid they will refuse to rent the car to me claiming the CDW coverage was no good and will force me to either pay for it or raise the deposit so high I will not be able to rent. All my previous experiences were great there and I think they fired all the people who were good at customer service.
