best rental car agency?

I can't find a recent answer to this question. We're flying into/out of LAS and need an SUV for 8 days. There are lots of choices, and many negative reviews of just about every agency. Which ones would TA advisers recommend?

I'd go with whatever one has the best rate on the car I want.

Dollar and Thrifty are always great, Alamo is also good. Join their clubs on line and you can avoid the lines and go straight to the area to pick up car, it costs nothing. Watch prices, they flucuate daily.

I've gone with Alamo for at least my last 6 trips. Never had any problems with them.

I'm in the car rental biz and have been for 26 years. If you read the reviews(negative reviews) most are for gas...late charges...and damages... It's the "it's not my fault" story. Take those reviews with a grain of salt.

Dollar Avis national and hertz will take care of you. Bring the car back with a full tank and on time you will experience NO issues.

Price is the first consideration for me. I have used Advantage, Alamo, Thrifty, and Enterprise. All the cars were equal.

Fox is not at the rental center and is not recommended.

I've used Avis at Excalibur Hotel several times. Never had a problem with them. Also it's cheaper than renting from the airport. All rental companies will have the bad days, and without a question someone will write about it, if it happens to them.

I would suggest finding one that has a location close to where you are staying.

Extra tip, book it online with their website!!!! The prices are often lower than just walking up to the counter.
