Address to submit a claim form (REQUIRED):
Details: A class action lawsuit settlement has been reached with nine major rental car companies over allegations they improperly charged certain fees to consumers who picked up their rental cars at a California airport in 2007. If you rented a vehicle from Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Fox Rent A Car, Hertz, National or Thrifty for pickup at a California airport during this time period and paid an ACF and/or TCA fee, you may be entitled to benefits under the class action settlement.
The California airport rental car settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, entitled Shames v. The Hertz Corporation, that alleges the Defendants violated antitrust and other laws by raising rental car prices at California airports by conspiring with each other to pass on the Airport Concession Fee (ACF) and Tourism Commission Assessment (TCA) to customers for rentals at certain California airport locations.
The rental car companies deny the allegations but have agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to avoid the hassle and expense of on ongoing litigation.
Class Members of the California airport car rental class action settlement include people who rented a vehicle directly from corporate-owned locations of Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Fox Rent A Car, Hertz, National or Thrifty for pick up at a California airport location from January 1, 2007 through November 14, 2007, and were charged and paid an ACF and/or TCA as a separate line item on their invoice to one of those companies.
As a Class Member, you’re entitled to receive either a cash payment or voucher from each Rental Car Defendant that you rented a car from during the Class Period and paid an ACF and/or TCA fee.
