Avis Budget Group Inc.
and its wholly-owned brands—Avis Car Rental, Budget Car Rental, and Payless Car Rental—have agreed to a $10.1 million
settlement to resolve allegations of overcharging the United States on rental cars, in violation of the False Claims Act. According to the government, between 2014 and 2019, Avis submitted false claims and received payment for improper charges, including those that were already included as part of the government rental rate and unallowed supplemental costs such as insurance coverage and late turn-in fees.
