“These unfair and unlawful business practices result in many consumers who are not affiliated with those organizations paying substantially higher rental rates than those made available to gay and lesbian renters,” the complaint states.A quick bit of research finds that Avis also offers discounts to members of other groups like AARP, AAA, and USAA. Additionally, Avis doesn't offer discounts to GLBT people. It offers discounts to members of those groups. I'm not a member of any of those groups. I don't get a discount. Additionally, if she was really interested in securing IGLTA's discount rates, what's to stop her from joining up? Not them. They don't require that you be GLBT to join.
Evenchik is seeking damages and restitution on behalf of anyone who rented a car from Avis since the company began offering the discounts, which is believed to have begun around September 2010.
She also seeks an injunction to stop Avis from continuing to offer reduced rates to members of the gay and lesbian organizations.
People like to complain about frivolous lawsuits. This is one of them.
