When you access a car rental service you must be very careful with the fines. The fact that the vehicle is not in your name does not exempt you from having to pay them. It is true that some companies offer you a fine management service, but this only includes the process of advising you on how to proceed, in no case does it include the payment of the fines.
The most common is that the company is notified of the fine before the end of the contract. The company will inform the Traffic Department of who the driver was and the driver will receive the infraction at his home address.
What is the fine notification period for a rental car?
This time will depend on the infraction that has been committed. Depending on this, the time periods for notification by the Administration will be different.
- For minor infractions, it will be a maximum of 3 months.
- For serious or very serious infringements, it will be a maximum of 6 months.
Is it possible to appeal a fine in a rental car?
Some leasing companies include in their fees a fine management service through which you can appeal as soon as you receive notification of the infraction.
How long do I have to pay the fine on a rented car?
From the moment the notification is received, there is a period of 20 calendar days to make the payment. If payment is made during that time, a 50% discount on the total amount of the penalty can be obtained. Once the term is over, the possibility of having a discount will also end.
