Sunday Deadline to File Claims in Avis, Budget and Payless Settlement



TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi is urging consumers who rented a car from Avis, Budget or Payless between Jan. 1, 2010 to July 10, 2017 and were charged for e-Toll services to file a claim before the January 7, 2018 deadline. The deadline to submit a claim is this Sunday. Refund checks will be mailed in March 2018 to eligible claimants wrongfully charged for e-Toll services.

In July this year, Attorney General Bondi’s Office reached a settlement with Avis Budget Car Rental System, LLC, which owns Avis, Budget and Payless. The settlement resolves allegations related to the rental car companies’ practices involving add-on fees for cashless tolls in Florida and other related add-on charges. As part of the settlement, the three companies are required to provide refunds to any consumers charged for e-Toll without sufficient disclosures, who have not already been reimbursed and who file a claim for a refund.
