Unfold Close  CAR RENTAL SCAM

Have you encountered an ad for a rental car that seems too cheap to be true? Be cautious when responding to such ads as it could be a car rental scam, which tricks you into paying a deposit or the rental fee beforehand. When payment is made, you find that neither the agency nor the car exists.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

  • If the photo accompanying the ad is a generic one, the ad may not be a genuine one
  • Be wary of a service advertised for much lower than the prevailing market price

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

  • Only rent vehicles from reputable car rental companies – check with ACRA to confirm that the company exists
  • Insist on documentation of the car rental details, especially of payment
  • Ask to see the vehicle and its identification document to verify its ownership
