Alamo

Quick question about Alamo at LAX.

Never used them before in LA but wanted to know if they are like Orlando where you have a choice of car once you've sorted the paperwork ?

also does anyone know what convertibles they have ? I guess Sebrings ? or am I likely to get something better like a mustang?

Last year got stuck with the Sebring and hated it. like driving a boat !! :o)

thanks

Hi Ads

How are you.

Last year we went with budget and they allocated you a car its been about three years since we've hired with alamo out of LA and they did give you a choice then.

Have only ever hired a convertible once with Alamo and that was in Hawaii and we got a mustang then.

hi mike good thanks, u ok?

we've used Budget, Avis etc before there but remembered that Alamo at MCO let you chose you car from the section. Hoped it would be the same.

bit of luck and they have something a bit nicer than a Sebring, had a Nissan 300z thingy last year which was a hoot !! Mustang will do but had trouble getting one last year.

cheers

We used Alamo in SF last June and were given a Mitsubushi Eclipse - that was the only convertable option they had so a good thing there were just the 2 of us and we use bags not cases.

Nice car though - the other half (who does all the driving) was very happy with it and will be more than pleased if we get the same when we pick ours up from LA this year.

cheers Jules

Out of interest will I be able to get at least 1 case in the trunk? Other can go on back seat like we did in the Mustang

I don't think you'd get a case in the trunk of the Mitsubushi Eclipse - well certainly not the family type of case that you'd take on holiday. We use large holdalls and one of them fitted in at a squeeze with the other on the back seat.
