Update to Avis Problems

A little over a month ago, I posted the problems I was having with unauthorized payments that Avis Rent-a-Car charged to my credit card unknown to me.  Since then, it has been frustrating trying to find out what these charges were for and why I had not been notified before arriving to pick up my… Continue reading Update to Avis Problems

My Avis Rent-a-Car Run-around
