Deadline for car rental refunds is this Sunday

Floridians who were improperly charged toll fees by Dollar and Thrifty car rental companies face a Sunday, July 7 deadline to submit refund claims. 

The rental car agencies reached a settlement agreement with the attorney general's office earlier this year. The agreement is related to toll fees placed on rental cars between January 2011 and January 2018. 

Many customers were unaware fees would be added to their final bill. Some were changed $15 per cashless toll or had fees of more than $10 per day added to rental agreements to cover toll road charges. 

Attorney General Ashley Moody says the application process is easy, but only those who apply will be eligible for refunds. 

"As this deadline is fast approaching this Sunday, we need to make sure people are aware that if that happened to them, if they feel they were overcharged and not made aware of those fees, if they submit a claim, we can get money for them,' said Moody. 

APPLY: If you feel you are due to a refund, an online application form can be found at the attorney general's website, which can be found here.
