Weekend survey: When should a car rental company charge you for damage?


That’s not an academic question, given all the recent stories about excessive car rental claims on this site.

And yes, it still is the weekend. I’m in another time zone. (But I’ll be back on the mainland tomorrow.)

I’m also interested in your comments. Should car rental companies go after the last person who rented the car, or should they be more conservative, and only pursue claims that have been acknowledged by the renter?
