Which car rental company?

I've read on this forum about Delux car rental. It seems to be getting a bad rap. I can get a sweet deal on a car from them that I'm very close to securing, but am concerned about the bad rap it got on here. Does anyone have any up to date info on the company? Has it improved?

Thanks!

They've gotten a lot of bad reviews here over the past few years. Prices are low but service seems lacking and they won't let you out the door until you've purchased their insurance waivers.

What dates do you need a car for? Do you have AAA or AARP?

Am coming out to So. Cal 2.26 for 6 days. Need to pick up a rental at LAX. I've used Dollar and had no problem, then used Fox in San Diego last year and their pick up office was a nightmare as far as pick up from the airport and the actual picking up of the car....took forever........... I was looking at the special at Delux for 199 for the week for a PT cruiser convt. and I'd like that, but don't want to go through the hassle with Delux if it's that bad. I have AARP, tho that really isn't much of a discount, also have AMEX.

Any help is appreciated.

Try bidding on a car on Priceline.com. We have done that, and got a convertible in Hawaii for $24 a day. If you get your bid accepted, it will only be with one of the major companies (Alamo, Dollar, Hertz, Budget, Enterprise). I would go that route. We saved a ton of money. I would never use priceline for anything else, but you can't go wrong with a rental car through them.

Thanks so much. I'm always hesitant about doing a Priceline type thing in case I need to cancel at the last minute, but maybe I'll do that right before we go!

Book something with Thrifty.com, promo code AX10.

You can always cancel should you find something better.
