Alamo Rent A Car Issue Stop Sale On Minivans

Hi all,

As I reported back in August I thought there maybe a shortage of vehicles over the Christmas period, so it comes as no surprise that today Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental both part of the largest car rental supplier in the U.S., Enterprise, have issued a stop sale (no vehicles available) for 7 and 8 seater’s from the following Florida locations between 20/12/12 & 27/12/12.

We’ve Added Two New Suppliers

Hi all,

So today signals the first full week of users having access to the new usrentacar.co.uk site feedback has mostly been positive and fingers crossed most of the bugs have been ironed out.

Today’s post will highlight two new suppliers we’ve added to the site, National Car Rental and Thrifty Rent A Car. We never rush in to  adding a new supplier to our site, the supplier has to be offering something different from what we already have and of course they have to come with a good car rental pedigree. So first up is National Car Rental.

National Car Rental

National are the prestige brand of America’s largest car rental company, Enterprise Holdings. National are the sister company of Alamo Rent A  Car and are best known in the U.S. for being aimed at business travel.  We’ve bought them on board for a couple of reasons, firstly they offer a young drivers policy which are pretty hard to contract, secondly they offer some great pick up locations that Alamo don’t cover including JFK car hire but the best part and the real selling point is the way they price their one way rentals (pick up in one location drop off in another). National offer a base price for all one way rentals regardless of mileage of $250.00. So even if you are collecting in Orlando but returning to San Francisco the one way rental will only ever be $250.00 plus tax… Alamo would charge $500, Dollar would charge $750 and Budget would charge $1000.00!!! So as you can see National are great way to save cash on one way rentals.

Recap

  • One way rentals only cost $250.00 regardless of mileage.
  • National offer a young drivers product.
  • Great locations.

Thrifty Rent A Car

Thrifty are part of DTAG which also owns Dollar Rent A Car. At present Thrifty in my opinion are working out where they stand within the UK market, are they a cheaper version of Dollar or just a sister site? We bought Thrifty on board to offer competitive pricing at locations that Dollar aren’t present, for example Boston Airport. Thrifty have a great history of working with inbound holiday makers and understand the UK mindset.

Recap

  • Competitive pricing.
  • Locations Dollar Don’t have.
  • Understanding of the UK market.

Have you used either of these suppliers in the past, what did you think?

James
