Hello fellow disney lovers!
I was hoping someone on here might be able to help me. Normally when we go to the USA we always hire our car through a company called "Yes Car Hire" we've always found them to be very reliable, competitive prices and very helpful (they really helped us out when we got stuck up the mountains in California but thats a different story!) Anyway I've just finished finalizing next years plans for our WDW visit and wanted to get a quote from Yes Car Hire. I noticed their website has been down for a few weeks now (even though it says only a few days?) and I'm getting suspicious about what's happening with them. So I've started looking at other companies to use but it's difficult to know who to trust and which companies have hidden extras etc. We will need a larger car this time as there will be 6 of us and up to 3 named drivers. Can anyone out there recommend any companies that they trust to book car hire with. Anyone you have used and had a smooth experience with, who has competitive prices with no hidden extra's would be great.
Thanks in advance for you help!
JD

We have also used Yescarhire and found them excellent. Since booking with Virgin we found it cheaper to use them rather than anyone else. I also noticed that other travel agents charge if you don't take out car hire/insurance.

I've just found out from another forum that Yes car hire have gone bust, what a shame! Also if anyone has outstanding vouchers from them they now can't be used so spread the word if you know about anyone please!

used usrentacar for the last two trips and have been great, will use them again for next year as well

We get the most expensive insurance which includes the extra drivers and the tank of fuel

Thanks, having looked at both sites that is the one I will probably use as we like to pick up from the Dolphin normally and always go for the more expensive insurance to cover the fuel and extra drivers. I'm glad people have used them before and recommended them, there's nothing better than a word of mouth recommendation I think!

Unfortunately Yes car hire went a few weeks ago. This was the thread about it at the time. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2297449
All these companies are used by people on here. Try the all and see which is cheapest.

we always book direct through hertz, good prices and good service.
You know they will be there when you land, same as booking direct with Dollar, Thrify, Alamo and Budget.

Companies like Yes car hire do have cheap prices but at a cost

We always use Hertz as well, and are #1 Club Gold members, which is great as you just get in the car, drive to the exit, show them your driving licence and you're off. No queueing at the rental desk.
Sometimes it can be a bit fiddly to persuade the Hertz website to come up with a competitive price, but I've always got there in the end, but make sure you get the fully prepaid price in GBP, then that's fully inclusive.
