Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Stanford S., who built on Monday’s tip, saying:

“A few years ago I came home from Switzerland and received two official looking traffic tickets by regular mail, totaling over 300 Euros. I contacted the car rental company and they had no notice. We suspected a scam. You might want to warn your readers.”

If you do get a ticket while driving away from home in a rental car, it’s definitely a good idea to check with the rental car company—or someone who can confirm—before paying it. Thanks, Stanford!
