You may think you’re going to get your own car for a low price, but when you sign up for a rental, you’re being told that you’ll pay a fee.
That’s because rental agencies are required by law to charge a fee of $150 per car rental.
But what you might not know is that they can also charge you as much as $2,000 if they don’t find a car for you.
The problem is that you can’t really get a refund, and if you’re unable to find a new car you’ll be left paying the rent for years to come.
