My company book the rental car from Budget on May,29th 2017. And I returned on June 3, 2017.When I returned my car Budget guy went and verified my car and he gave me a rental receipt.They charges as per daily rental 262$.
They inspected in front me and they gave receipt of 262$. After one week I saw in my credit card statement they charged 272 bugs for smoke smell.If they felt smoke smell they would have been told when I returned my vehicle.I am not understanding after I drop of my car , one week they charged 272 $ for smoke smell.
Actually I didn't smoke.And I went to budget rental office where I drop-off my car. They said when u pickup vehicle you didn't mention any smoke smell in inspection sheet?And they charged damage fee as 1350$.

Still I am not understanding they didn't tell all these things when I went for drop-off rental car.After couple of days they verified and they charged. Please help me on this.
