Dollar and Thrifty Warning

I have used both Dollar and Thrifty and currently have a reservation with Dollar this April. I still plan on using either one in the future if the price is right. I found this article on the Denver Post and there are other posts out there about some deceptive practices with adding insurance after you have declined it. Be careful when you are signing the electronic keypads and make sure you read everything you are signing. The lawsuit alleges that the agent asks you to initial the electronic keypad and in doing so you are actually agreeing to the added insurance. Here is the article link. http://www.denverpost.com/breakingne...-dollar-at-dia

Pam - i just tried your dates, and discovered that the rates stay low for the 11th and 12th, but rise dramatically for Saturday. Sorry, i can't help more. Be persistent and keep checking. I have found that the rates tend to go down during midweek, and later at night.

The Alamo codes didn't work for me today either, but Dollar and Thrifty's city specials sure did.

Will keep looking for better deals, of course.

It's so cool that so many people come together here to help each other. Is there any sort of meet & greet once we all arrive on our vacations?

You are correct, it is great everyone helps each other here. I have learned so much and I pass it forward too.

My rates at National dropped again ($6.40) for pickup at TPA on 4/1 and return to MCO on 4/7 for a midsize using only my Emerald Aisle discount of 10%. My total with taxes and fees is $150.43. For some reason none of my entertainment book coupons and codes are working for these dates. I think I'll bring them along and ask about applying them when we pick up the car.

Not much of a drop in price...but hey, that's one more tropical drink for me!

I just want to make sure that when you are all posting your quoted rates, are they the base rate or the total cost with fees? I have been able to get some base rates similar to what some of you have posted but the actual cost is about 40% more with all the fees added.

Thanks for posting. Here is what I have so far.

Dollar April 14 (9am) - 21 (6pm) Rate Code RWXW8 for Estimated Total of $380 (Full Size)
I booked Thrifty for April 15-20 with no codes for $162.77 for a full size car with all taxes. I just put your dates and times for a full size and got $197.10 with all taxes.

This happened to me with Dollar in September. I called them as soon as I received my credit card statement and was told there was nothing I could do, I had signed the electronic pad. I called my Visa and was told there was nothing I could do, I had signed. The woman on the phone at Dollar told me to be very careful when I am done with the electronic pad and to make sure that the total on the pad is the exact same total that I have on my reservation paperwork.

I just booked with Enterprise, 4/16 - 4/27, standard size, $272 total. Used BJ's code and upgrade coupon, although I think it was the same price with no code.
