Payless Car Rental - WARNING - Initial to ADD Roadside Assistance Hidden In With List of Insurance Decline Initials!!
I always decline all car rental insurance because I'm covered by my own auto insurance company AND my credit card company. The clerk presented with a contract that required me to initial in 5 or 6 spots to decline all the extra insurance offered by Payless. I initialled all the spots circled on the contract. When I compared the final price to the online quote I noticed the amount was $119 not $94 as quoted for a 3 day rental. I asked why and was told the quote was only an estimate and there was nothing added to the quote. I planned to complain to Kyak on my return about their quote which was more than 20% lower than the contract Payless presented to me.
The reason the final price was higher was not just price variances but the final initialled box on the list of insurance declines was actually a box which ADDED roadside assistance. This is a devious practice meant to catch customers who don't read the contract before signing it. You place your trust in a clerk who makes more money than his/her salary by up selling add-ons to the rental contract. There is a significant incentive designed by the company to cheat customers by misleading them.
