In April 2011 I rented a VW bug convertible from CP car rentals in San Miguel, Cozumel. The agent asked me where I was going and what I'd be doing. I told him I intended to drive around the island and would probably stop at a restaurant for lunch. He showed me on a map how to drive around the island and recommended a restaurant at Playa Chen Rio. Prior to leaving CP car rentals I took several digital photos of the car in case there was a question as to its condition when I returned it. When I left I followed his instructions to the letter and did stop at the restaurant he'd recommended. The time I was at the restaurant was the only time I left the car unattended. When I returned the car an inspection was done and it was noted that there was a mark on the rear bumper. This was not a dent or a scratch but merely a rub mark. I quickly viewed the digital photos of the car that I had taken earlier and my photos showed that in fact the mark was not there when I had rented the car. The manager asked me to come inside the office and advised me that I owed him $50.00 for the damage and he wanted cash. I was stunned! The mark could have been covered with one shot of paint from a $5.00 spray bomb. I realized at this time that I was being scammed. It is with the utmost certainty that I had not done anything while driving the car to put the mark on the bumper so it must have happened when I was at the restaurant. My guess is the manager of CP car rentals and the restaurant work together on this scam. I knew it was senseless to protest because if I did the police would likely be called and then I'd be paying them too. The moral of the story is don't rent from CP car rentals in San Miguel, Cozumel.
