I rented from Thrifty Car Rental at the Miami Airport.It was inexpensive and the car was adequate. Unfortunately no one at the counter could tell me how to get back to the airport without going through a toll. So I thought I would try. Unfortunately I couldn't do it and I was fined (Administrative fee) by Thrifty $60. So I thought that they would understand what happened and refund my penalty and keep the tolls. Unfortunately they said it was all my fault. They are not responsible to give a tourist directions. Maybe they aren't but it sure would have helped...and a little cheaper.

Honestly, man up and do your own research. Google is your friend.

Half the kids working for minimum wage at the car rental booths at Miami don't even own cars, let alone know the back way around the toll roads.

That's why it is always told to do research before doing the trip to different country. You should have gathered that information from us beforehand only to avoid such situation. Don't worry. You are fined, that happened. Forget about it and next time you cherish the experience what you've got.
