Q: What to do if a rental car company tries to overcharge me for damage to the car

Rented a Nissan Frontier pick-up (from National), and had a small accident (small crack in front bumper). I learned after the fact that my credit card didn't cover pick-up truck. I'll have to pay out of my own pocket, and won't be able to get an official estimate before I bring it back. I want to know what I can do if they try to overcharge me for those repairs.

A: Do you have insurance? Consider giving it to them. You only have to pay reasonable costs. However to fight it you need to get estimates yourself, in writing.
