Rented a car in Israel for August.  Went very smoothly and was all and good.  While I was there I got a parking ticket by the Kotel and didn't pay it as I was leaving the next day and wasn't sure how to.  I've gotten a 2 $15 fees from budget since then.  The first one was apparantly a "handling fee".  Has anyone had a similar experience?

What happens when one disputes a charge on the CSP.

Ideas?

Do I need to have a Costco membership in order to use the code?  Will it be an issue when I go to pick up the car?

Anyone know the answer to this one or point me to the correct place. I rented from Budget in Florida a couple of weeks ago. I went to a restaurant and somehow the way I went put me through a toll booth. Now I get a bill for $18 for tolls. I called them up and they said it's a $3.95 per day convenience fee for the transponder! For the future, is there any way to get away with it? I also said no one told me. They said they don't usually but it's in the rental agreement.

If I take it off - 1. They won't charge per day. I thought it's no matter what. 2. How do you pay the toll? I don't remember toll booth operators

Nope. I only used it once. They charged me the "convenience fee" for every day!

Rented a car in Israel and already returned it, but never gave them my AA frequent flyer number in order to receive points for my rental. Is it too late, or is there a way to retroactively receive points for the rental?

So I was messing with name your own price trying to pull off a full size SUV for around $20 a day. When that didn't work I figured I would try tomorrow but instead I bid on a convertible. I won a 16 day rental out of FLL over Shavuos at $18 a day for a convertible. They gave me Budget for a total of $480 after taxes and fees.
It then dawns on me that I have a car seat and I hope to G-D it fits. I have never rented a convertible and I think my wife will love it. Maybe ill keep it a surprise.
