Avis Customer Alleges Avis Budget Group, Inc. and Avis Rent A Car System, LLC for Deceptively Failing to Disclose Rental Car Fee

The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York held that an ambiguity in a car rental contract regarding the applicability of a particular fee precluded dismissal of a customer's breach of contract and deceptive practices claims against Avis. However, the district court dismissed an inadequately pleaded unjust enrichment claim. On Sept. 18, 2011, Jodd Readick rented a vehicle from an Avis Rent a Car location. The vehicle was equipped with an electronic toll device for use on toll roads, bridges and tunnels. Readick had to pay a $2.50 per rental day "convenience fee" for the device and the actual toll fees incurred during the rental period when he returned the vehicle. Readick brought a class action lawsuit against Avis Budget Group Inc. and Avis Rent A Car System L.L.C. (collectively, Avis), alleging that Avis did not properly disclose the convenience fee, which Readick never agreed to pay. The complaint asserted claims for breach of contract, unjust enrichment and deceptive acts and practices.
