Drive Avis, Budget, Payless? File by Sunday for Florida toll refunds

Sunday’s the deadline for refunds under a state settlement on Florida toll charges that involve more than $1 million with Avis, Budget and Payless.

For a claim form, click here by Jan. 7. For questions during business hours:  850-414-3840.

Who’s eligible? Renters between Jan. 1, 2010 and July 10, 2017 who were charged for e-Toll services and who have not already received a refund.

Many drivers were unaware of the $3.95 daily fee or how to avoid it, only to get a bill for it four to six weeks later, according to the Florida Attorney General’s Office.

The fees were charged as a means to pay for cashless tolls, but consumers could avoid these if driving on routes without tolls or on those that accept cash.

Under a settlement, Avis and related companies agreed to clearly disclose relevant fees and train employees not to tell consumers the only way to pay is through their e-Toll system.
