This past week, I rented a car for a trip that was long enough that I didn’t want to add 2,000 extra miles to my personal vehicle which has an odometer that just passed the 200K mark.
I made all the preparations online and showed up to get the car. I was presented with two keys/remotes for the vehicle, which I suppose makes sense in case I miss-place one. What does not make sense, however, is the fact that both are tethered together with a steel cable.
What is the purpose of said procedure?
The branch manager had no idea, nor did any of his staff. It was almost like no one ever asked them that question before.. . . Blank stares.
The only thing I can think of is that is for revenue generation. Instead of charging $195.00 for losing one, they can charge you $390 for losing two.
Anyone able to shed some light on this?
Change my mind.
