Budget Rent A Car Take Over Las Vegas Dollar Locations

Hi all,

On the 4th May I wrote about how Dollar Rent A Car had closed some of its Las Vegas Locations well after a few weeks of rumours, I can now confirm that those locations have been picked up by Avis Budget in a multi year deal with MGM Resorts who own the hotels in question.

Bill Hornbuckle, MGM Resorts’ chief marketing officer, said,

“MGM Resorts is proud to partner with Avis Budget Group as we search for category-exclusive strategic alliances that equal the momentum of our own expansion. These travel industry partnerships are especially important to us in our efforts to create enhanced benefits and personalized rewards for our customers through M life.”

Tom Gartland, executive vice president of sales, marketing and customer care for Avis Budget Group, said,

“We are excited to expand our local market presence and showcase Avis’ renowned ‘We try harder’ service and traveler amenities such as our smoke-free fleet, where2 GPS navigation devices and eToll electronic toll collection solutions to MGM Resorts’ guests”

Our new relationship with MGM Resorts International also will enhance Avis and Budget’s online presence as the exclusive rental car providers on MGM Resorts’ corporate website and on each property’s website.”

Locations

MGM Resorts properties in Las Vegas including

  • ARIA
  • Bellagio
  • Vdara
  • MGM Grand
  • The Signature at MGM Grand
  • Mandalay Bay
  • The hotel at Mandalay Bay
  • The Mirage
  • Monte Carlo
  • New York-New York
  • Luxor
  • Excalibur
  • Circus Circus

At present usrentacar.co.uk has not been informed if these locations will be available to UK tour operators like ourselves, but I would assume they will be at some point to allow maximum exposure.

I’ll keep you informed if anything changes.

Dollar Rent A Car Close’s Las Vegas Locations

Hi all,

We’ve received news today that unfortunately Dollar Rent A Car have been unable to reach a long term agreement with several hotels and casino’s in Las Vegas and as of the 1st June 2011 they will no longer be operational.

Dollar statement:

We have been unable to reach an agreement with the hotelier to continue the current arrangement and regrettably, we will be closing several of those hotel lobby rental counters in Las Vegas.

The locations effected are

  • LAS VEGAS LUXOR
  • LAS VEGAS CIRCUS CIRCUS
  • LAS VEGAS MIRAGE
  • LAS VEGAS EXCALIBUR
  • LAS VEGAS MGM GRAND
  • LAS VEGAS MONTE CARLO
  • LAS VEGAS BELLAGIO
  • LAS VEGAS NEW YORK/NEW YORK
  • LAS VEGAS MANDALAY BAY
  • LAS VEGAS ARIA RESORT AND CASINO

We have contacted all customers effected by these closures and Dollar Rent A Car have reacted quickly to prevent further inconvenience by setting up a shuttle service based from their Swenson Street location.

We are pleased to advise that all reservations you have booked for rental on or after June 1, 2011, will be handled by our full service location located at 4775 Swenson Street, Las Vegas, NV 89169.  This location is just off the Las Vegas Strip and within short distance of many major Las Vegas Hotels.  Your customer simply needs to contact our location 702-591-6565 and we will arrange to pick them up from their hotel and transport them to our rental location to complete the rental agreement. This number provides direct support between the hours of 5:30 am to 8:30 pm PST.

Its a real shame that these locations have had to close, perhaps in the future these locations may re-open however its great to see Dollar Rent A Car reacting positively to reduce the impact this could have on usrentacar.co.uk customers.

Remember Dollar Rent A Car still has some great locations available in Nevada, please see the list below.

Las Vegas Airport

Dollar Car Hire Las Vegas Locations

Hi all,

Fresh on the heels of our  Dollar Car Hire Orlando Locations mapping page.las vegas car hire The nerds have come up with a map of Dollar Las Vegas locations which can be found by clicking here Dollar Car Hire Las Vegas Locations

Dollar have an extensive range of collection points in Las Vegas, more than Budget and Alamo combined.

As we now have live availability with Dollar Rent A Car you can now check available vehicle categories up to 15 minutes before collection! Also we offer free one way rentals from Nevada to California and vice versa so you could always collect from a downtown location but return it to the airport?

Is there another location you’d like us to map or have we missed something?

Kind regards,

James
