Everybody has an hourly rate after three grace period isnover, the question is how long and I guess once the daily rate is higher it kicks in?

Had this same question today. Finalized with Payless and they have a 29 minute grace.

I'm returning to National tomorrow. Can anyone confirm that I'll be okay up to 29 minutes but I'll need lots of Mazal to go beyond that?

The official policy is 29min. after that it dosnt hurt to ask, not to be charged. Rep needs to know how to do it.

So you can't use any other CDPs when using this benefit?

I'm asking which charge? Returned late? They charged you for extra hours? Extra day?
