A well established jargon term used in the car rental industry in and around Heathrow Airport. It refers to a situation where the sales rep is aware of a problem with the rental but nevertheless proceeds knowing that there is good commission to be had.
That was a dodgy rental where the Russian Mafia boss took the Mercedes for a week using his home made credit card and driving licence issued in Tibet. Mind you he bought all the extras so who cares?
