Complaint Detail(s)

9/15/2013 Billing/Collection Issues | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: I have rented vehicles from Mayfair Rent on several occassions. Recently they have changed their policy that you have to have a charge card to rent a vehicle. I have given them this information but have asked that they use another card to charge the services. The first rental they still charged my credit card after assurance that they would charge my other card and I even wrote them a note when I returned the vehicle to remind them. The second time on 8/3, they again assured me the other card would not be charged and even ran the other card with a charge card slip. Again the wrong credit card was charged. I left a voice mail for the manager to call me about the situation and I have not received a return call. I rent vehicles about 5-6 times a year and it seems like the communication at this business is not good if they cannot return calls and charge the right cards.

Desired Settlement: I would like them to reverse the charges immediately and charge the correct card as requested originally.

Business Response:

The customer uses a major credit card to rent the cars, which is required and our preference, to avoid qualifying with her debit card. All cash/debit card rentals are prequalified with a procedure that has been in place for many years. The customer is incorrect that we have changed our procedures.


Upon returning the vehicles after our normal business hours, the customer requests the final charges be transferred to her debit card. On this rental, we accidently left the charges on her credit card. She called and asked that we change this. A request was submitted to our corporate accounting office. This adjustment was completed on August 23rd. See the attachment. Our branch office called her on August 23rd and left her a message that the adjustment was completed and to call us if she had any further questions.

BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
