Rental car forum

Out of curiousity...

I travel a LOT, and I'm wedded to one rental car company, but I'm beginning to get curious about the pro's and con's of different companies.

Does TripAdvisor have an appropriate forum where car rental companies could be discussed irrespective of locale? That way, we could weigh the advantages/disadvantages of Hertz, Avis, Budget, etc.

Thanks!

Hi John,

No, Tripadvisor does not have a forum nor it accepts reviews for rental car companies. It's been suggested many times, but they are quite firm that they will not consider it. For the most part (which doesn't seem to be your case), people want to post their bad experiences and nothing else when it has to do with car rentals.

Thanks for the quick reply, and I understand TripAdvisor's position on this.

5. Re: Rental car forum

I would like to know why all rental car companies are calling what the industry and car companies midsize cars, full size cars? They are moving what they use to call full size cars into the premium cars class. It is my opinion that rental car companies rent luxury, premium, midsize, intermediate and compact cars. They no longer rent "full size" cars. Can you explain this? Is there any agency out there that can stop this? I rent full size cars because they have 6 cylinder engines. Mid size cars have 4 cylinder engines.

Hi Jeff,

Welcome to the forums!

The forums are primarily member-driven and I'm a volunteer.

The Support Forum is for assistance using the site, how-to questions and technical support to do with the site.

I don't know if your question is destination specific or not. My only suggestion would be to post on the Bargain Travel Forum as they may have some ideas or may recommend finding out via some other resource. Anyway, here's the Bargain Travel Forum:

Regards,

Hi Naomi;

This forum, the “TripAdvisor Support” forum, is for general questions and assistance using the TripAdvisor site itself.

For questions about travelling to specific destinations, you can use the destination forums, which you can browse or search for, starting here:

http://www.tripadvisor.com/ForumHome

I would suggest posting your query on the forum for the city where you rented the car from.

Best Regards

I've posted it on Rouen France where we dropped off our rental since we don't know where this traffic violation was issued.
