I doubt that would work.

I think this thread is more informative then DOC articles and comments.

Feel free to share on any blogs doing misreporting of the issue.

DoC added a correction and link to the DDMS post:

Update 4/23/20: It looks like this situation is more complex than first thought. An important clarification is that no changes to receipts were being made for example. Dans Deals has more on this you can read here.

I'd file a DOT complaint for this. Do you have any documentation that she was listed as an additional driver?

dont have a receipt and I can't find it in the online reservation either Hertz send me this link https://www.hertz.com/rentacar/customersupport/index.jsp?targetPage=faq.jsp&search=Additional%20driver
wich says If the person to be added on is your spouse, domestic partner or coworker, they are considered authorized operators and can operate the Hertz car without being added on, but this is no proof!

Tough call without that, but can't hurt to file a DOT informal complaint.
Go the formal route only if everything is very clean.

I just realized that I rented a car from Budget in Israel back in February, but when I try to enter the information based on the email receipt I got from Budget.co.il on https://www.budget.com/en/reservation/get-e-receipt I get error messages. Any tips on how I can get this resolved? My AA miles just expired and I'd like to have them reinstated.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
