I don’t know about you, but I would say on a scale of one to ten, I’m probably a ten when it comes to protecting my privacy. I like to know who is gathering information about me, what information they are gathering, and how they are using it. Even if you’re not very high on the privacy scale, this article by AutoSlash (Is Your Rental Car Spying on You? The Story of Connected Rental Cars) is a great read. I like many of the articles that appear on the AutoSlash newsletters because the AutoSlash team is insiders while not actually being a rental car company themselves. I think they do an excellent job of educating consumers, like you and me, on a wide variety of topics related to renting cars.
The article even explains the privacy policies of the big car rental companies and what they do with the telematics they collect about us. Good information to know! I learned a lot from this article, so wanted to make sure you don’t miss it. We here at TWG are big fans of AutoSlash and hope they keep articles like this one coming!
Let me know your thoughts on what AutoSlash has to say about privacy. Did you learn anything new from this article?
