Glad I stumbled upon this thread. Just booked 2 weeks for March/April 2014 for $231 all taxes and fees included. Hopefully they turn out to be a great company.

Another reason I am glad I checked the boards! Just booked 11/13-11/18 for $97.04, a mid size (Dodge Avenger or similar). Best deal I have found.

Thanks, Bob
Firefly Car Rental? They are only open after dark, and every few seconds they open and close.

I just went to their web site and booked a car for our December trip. Budget was $200 or so, Firefly is $114. Woo hoo.

I'm going to monitor this thread for experiences. I could save $50. over my National rate in December, but I have had great service with National/Alamo and love going straight to the garage to pick out my vehicle. That's probably worth the extra $50 to me.

Tried the site again this week - Dec 22nd - Jan 5th. All the cars come up as $1000/wk.
If anyone has Firefly as their only rental, I'd suggest having a backup!

Edit: Then I checked Oct 6 - 9, $10/day! And it's normal until Jan 4th, but once I add Jan 5th, it goes crazy.

These are some great deals, it reminds me of when Sixt opened with there amazing deals. I wish they would accept hertz discount codes because being under the age of 25, I definitely need that fee waived! However I did manage to find a rental with Hertz for $86 for October 3-7.

The holiday rates for any agency are killers! Sorry.

I booked a reservation with firefly for 10/15-10/20 at $70.99/week for a Ford Focus or similar.

I also have a reservation for Budget at $119/week.

I will keep both reservations until I hear back about people's experience with Firefly.

I, too, booked Firefly with their great rates. (I also have a couple others booked, til I decide what company I'm going with.) I checked this morning, and Firefly is WAY UP for my dates (11/30 - 12/7)!!! I think their previous rates were probably introductory, for a short period of time. They also added San Francisco as a location, but previously only had MCO.

I'd like to hear about actual experiences with them as well.

I do it too, but I wonder if any of you with multiple car reservations make multiple ADR's for the same night? Or perhaps chastise those who do?

I NEVER, EVER do that. Either one. And multiple car reservations? I cancel all the ones I DON'T want way ahead of time. I am not keeping a car from someone else reserving it.

Normally I'd cancel my other reservations, but Firefly is such an unknown company right now, it would be stupid to put all my faith in that reservation right now.

Firefly has been added to priceline's rental car list and is listed as on site. Adds some more credibility to it. Really hoping everything works out with them since they are so much cheaper for our Oct rental.
