Anyone try Hotwire for car rentals? Just curious if anyone has had any problems with them? They offer great rates so I'm wondering what the catch is.

I used Hotwire for a Budget car rental. Good price, but I couldn't get frequent flyer miles (with Southwest) through Budget.

Hi Patty,

I have used them. They do have good rates, though they don't always offer the best rates you can find on the rental companies own sites, so make sure you check.

You also cannot cancel your reservation, so you pay whether you use it or not. And if a deal does come up, you cannot change.
