Just about 4 weeks ago we dropped off our European road trip rental Volvo in perfect shape, got a receipt and got billed to my Amex the same amount as in the receipt. Yesterday I saw 29 Euro charge from Hertz Germany. Called Amex, they said they will take it off, no questions asked. Unless I want to know what it was all about, the dispute is closed. Otherwise I need to file a dispute form, they will investigate and it is take 4-6 weeks. I opted to get it taken off and all was well. Until this afternoon when I got a rechnungangaben zur ordnungswidrigkeit from Hertz from Germany. It says im rahmen ihrer miete kam es zu einer ordnungswidrigkeit. gemaess unserer mietbedingungen wird ihnen fuer die bearbeitung einer ordnungswidrigkeit eine gebuer in rechnung gestellt, welche unabhaengig von der hoehe des bussgeldes ist. der betrag des bussgeld wird ihnen von dem zustaendigen ordungsamt separat zugestellt, oder durch hertz weiterbelastet When I type it in Googletranslate it gives me as part of their rent , there was an administrative offense . rental conditions according to our them is provided for the processing of an administrative offense a gebuer in bill, which is independent of the amount of the fine . the amount of the fine will be sent to them separately from the competent ordungsamt , or passed on by hertz
Is this a traffic violation of some sort? I Googletranslated all the words and there is nothing that would tell me anything more. Apparently this happened Aug 10, it says festgestellt am 10/08/2016 - ausgestellt am 10/08/2016. Bill is 25 euros plus 4.75 fee. I would think any speeding ticket or other would be higher. It says it was billed to my Amex. What did I do?
If you cant read german, then probably you were parked somewhere that had a variable parking time or such, or drove through a toll road, or a congestion management zone. Either way, it seems that it would be something that was tagged to the car by plate and linked to your rental. Ask for an explanation from Hertz if you want, but the rental contract probably addresses your responsibility with any tickets or tolls.
