Re: Annoyed by rental car company admin fee

Y’know, it is possible that vendors could calculate the actual costs that they incur on each and every case.

But that calculation itself is going to take time, and resources. 15-20 minutes likely costing CHF15-20. Which they would add to your bill.

It is more likely they calculate their total annual costs in dealing with fines and divide that amount by the number of claims they deal with.

European law, and I assume Swiss law, require these fees to be reasonable. This means that they need to be able to demonstrate that their fees are not unreasonable.

Oh, and in your original post I think you meant to say rip-off, rather than steal. I

I stopped speeding and parked correctly!! Et voila, no more admin charges, and no more fines either. A double bonus!
But apparently that is not an option for the OP. When I suggested it as a means of avoiding charges:

Man, I was waiting for that one. Because any time someone makes a small mistake, they should be publicly punished and have nothing to say about it. Do you enjoy it?

This is Switzerland. There's a fine for not using a crossing
and i believe until recently also an admin fee related to that fine!

This is not from Hertz website. But from Hertz Vans. I did not rent a van. I already contacted Hertz on this topic, they could not give me any proof that they would charge 49Fr. But, nice try.
then i hope you didn't pay the fee yet and refuse to pay until they give you such proof! otherwise, you are wasting everybody's time on here complaining if you voluntarily paid a fee which had no legal basis! that's just very very stupid.

Re: Annoyed by rental car company admin fee

It is not ther rental fee thast earns the car hire company any money but all the add ons and "admin" charges is where their profit is !


Either we accept cheap rental and high costs or expensive rentla and low costs.....

Re: Annoyed by rental car company admin fee

Well has no-one ever rented a car in Florida and been scammed by the rental-car company's toll system, where you end up paying about 3 times the toll local people pay?
