Another game for the Olympics?

We've heard horror stories about renting cars in third world nations. Advice given to minimize rip-offs is to avoid prepayments, use a credit card with travel protection and rent from major organizations.

Renting in Vancouver should be OK, if you stick with a major outlet. Should be, that is. One would expect that Avis Budget Group, Inc. would be safe since they operate "two of the most recognized brands in the global vehicle rental industry."

Safe and trustworthy? Maybe not. CBC News presents an unhappy story about one man's experience with Budget. Turns out that the Better Business Bureau has had frequent contact with a Budget franchisee in Richmond known as the Phelps Group.

By sharing this story, we can raise the cost of unethical and questionable business practices.
