What’s this settlement about?
This lawsuit is about certain fees and toll-related charges associated with the “e-Toll” electronic toll payment system available for use by Avis and Budget rental vehicle customers. Plaintiff alleges that the Defendants breached the ABG rental agreement or the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing by collecting these charges from customers in violation of the terms of the ABG rental agreement; violated the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act by failing to disclose these fees; and caused unjust enrichment in the Defendants’ favor. Defendants deny all of the allegations in the litigation and believe that the claims asserted against them are without merit.
Who is eligible for a refund?
The Class includes all U.S. residents who (1) rented an Avis or Budget vehicle from a company owned location in the U.S. during the “Class Period” and, (2) in connection with that rental, paid Avis, Budget or their electronic toll processing administrator, HTA, for their use of e-Toll.
“e-Toll-Related Charges” means e-Toll-Related Service Fees (a/k/a “convenience fees”) and, if any, e-Toll-Related Toll Differential incurred by an Avis or Budget customer for that customer’s use of e-Toll during the rental period.
“e-Toll-Related Toll Differential” means, with respect to an Avis or Budget rental customer who has used e-Toll, the difference, if any, between the amount charged to that customer for a toll or tolls incurred during a rental and the amount paid by HTA to a toll authority for the customer’s incurred toll or tolls during that rental.
The “Class Period” means April 1, 2007 through December 31, 2015, except that for rental transactions originating in Florida, Texas, and Colorado the class period is March 2, 2009 to December 31, 2015.

What is a class action lawsuit settlement?
For example, a class action lawsuit is one with multiple plaintiffs. In other words, there are more than one person being represented by the lawsuit. In other words, a plaintiff or plaintiffs file the case on behalf of many people who were affected by aren’t involved in the actual suit. For example, if you purchased an item that was later determined to be involved in a class action lawsuit, you may be entitled to compensation. If you’re included in the class or group of people affected, then you can file a claim to receive money, coupons or replacement products. But, each case is different, and each will specify who is included. In addition, class action lawsuits may require proof that you are part of the group of affected people. In this case, proof of purchase or other specified proof is needed. However, in some cases, no proof is required. In that case, you can file a claim without proving that you are part of the class of people affected. Of course, when you file a claim you are doing so under penalty of perjury. So, do not file if you do not qualify.
