Name the Rental Automobile Firm Earlier than Paying a Ticket

Call the rental car company before paying a ticketEvery Friday, we function a reader-submitted tip as our Journey Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Jo-Anne R., who says:

“We bought a ticket for parking illegally in Italy one yr after we’d been there. We didn’t click on the hyperlink. It was for a $45 ticket that had elevated with penalties to about $400. The ‘assortment company’ was in Chatsworth, CA, which was suspicious. We additionally didn’t name them. There are lots of scams from this one company and I assume they search out rental firm payments and frighten folks with these assortment payments.

What we did do was name the rental firm in Italy instantly and faxed them our settlement. They reviewed our rental and located that there have been no excellent tickets or tolls, which after all may occur however didn’t. In addition they didn’t know who the gathering company was. This occurred to my dad and he did pay it, although it was solely an $85 ticket for dashing. Once more, no approach of realizing if it was actual or not.”

A fantastic tip, harking back to this one. Thanks, Jo-Anne!
