A settlement has been proposed to compensate consumers who used Hertz’s PlatePass service while renting a vehicle from Hertz between July 1, 2006, and March 31, 2010, according to a website set up to handle claims.
PlatePass is used to bill car renters automatically for tolls they may incur, plus an administrative fee. A lawsuit alleged that Hertz did not adequately disclose the charges related to using the service, according to a website set up to settle claims. Hertz denies the claims.
The proposed settlement would provide a refund equal to 67 percent of what customers were charged in fees on the first occasion that they used PlatePass. The refund drops to 38 percent for subsequent uses of PlatePass, according to classactionrebates.com.
The deadline to submit a claim is Nov. 11.
