Was I on that one? Never heard anything after a couple of initial emails. Just had a Six Flags one recently and was advised to do nothing and let them get on with it.

We got one today! I was a bit concerned when DH said we've got something from the states about class action and car hire and thought we'd done something wrong, until I read it myself.

We got ours this morning. Towards the bottom it says you can request to be excluded and that request must be post marked before 6th April 2021. It also says that 'if you do not exclude yourself you will be legally bound by the decisions of the District Court and the final outcome of this lawsuit'. Does that mean if the District Court found against the plaintiff and awarded Avis/Budget costs then we'd be jointly liable? I'll be writing to have our names taken off the list. We had no issues on any of our trips so if we didn't have proper insurance at the time it's all water under the bridge now.

I wouldn't withdraw for a number of reasons

Probably going to get slung anyhow
If it does go ahead who turns down free money
Finally you wrote to me did you? Mmm, I never had it so nothing to do with me if the case is lost.

It's a long time since I read the brief, but in essence it relates to the cost of SLI cover. It was included in the (elevated)cost of most prepaid hires and if not you were advised to pay to top up. Avis stated that you would benefit from a policy with an insurance company to cover this risk.

It is alleged that Avis did not buy any such policy but retained the cash. It is believed that they did this because such claims were expected to be of a volume that the cash received for the top ups would cover it OOP; if not they were a big company. It is a common practice amongst large companies to bear a risk by self insurance but at that time Avis didn't say so. The plaintiff says their paperwork said they bought a policy. They didn't so the renter wanted the premium back.

So the case was brought. It has gone on for over 8 years on a "Oh yes you did, and an Oh no we didn't" basis and now looks to be coming to a head. I can't even speculate how it will turn out. It is an American class action, always a mystery.

Thanks everyone for your replies. Doesn't sound like anything for us to worry about at the moment then!
