If you rent cars online, you’ll get hit with a $20,000 penalty

If you live in the Raleigh area and have been renting a car online, it’s time to take action.

According to the North Carolina Attorney General’s office, your car rental company is liable for the rental of your vehicle to you unless you’ve already paid the fee and are responsible for the repairs.

That means you are obligated to pay the cost of any vehicle you’ve rented for more than 30 days, unless you’re able to get a “special exception” to do so.

The state also said that if you’ve not yet paid the rental fee, the company will owe you the difference, plus $20.00 per month for the next 30 days.

If you don’t pay your rental fee by the due date, the rental company can seize your vehicle and collect a $15,000 fine.

That means you’re likely going to have to pay an additional $1,200.00 in penalties for each day you haven’t paid your rental.

The attorney general’s office also said you should consider renting a vehicle online if you can avoid paying the $15 fee and avoid the fines.

The company you choose is your own business and your choice should be based on your business and experience, according to the attorney general.

The AG’s office has set a deadline of May 19 for people to file a complaint with the attorney.
