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

Hi all,

As you may know usrentacar.co.uk were the first car rental company to add the facebook like button, well a day after its official launch usrentacar.co.uk has become the first car hire company to intergrate the new facebook share button.

Facebook Share Button

The Send button is a social plugin that websites can use to let people send a link to a friend through Facebook Messages, post it to a Group, or email it to an individual. For example, if you see a piece of information on usrentacar.co.uk that you think might be useful, you can now send a message or email to your family members to discuss it. Or say you’ve been left in charge of organising the family holiday and you come across a great article about car hire. Now you can share it with your entire travel group in just one click.

We hope this new feature will allow our customer to easily swap and share information which in turn will make their car hire experience even better.

Let us know what you think and if you’ve used it.

USA Diner Dictionary

Hi all,

Been sent some great information from one of our readers regarding language used in U.S. diners by waitresses and kitchen staff. Although its not strictly Car Hire USA related, I thought it was interesting… I could be wrong :-)

Diner Dictionary

Adam’s Ale - Water.

B & B - Bread and Butter.

Black and White – Chocolate soda and vanilla ice cream.

Boiled Leaves – Tea.

Cremate it – Toast it.

Cow Paste – Butter.

Hen Fruit – Egg.

Hot One – Chilli.

House Boat – Banana Spilt.

Flop Two – Flip two eggs.

Let The Sunshine In – Unbroken egg.

Lighthouse – Bottle of Tomato sauce.

Over Easy/Easy Over – Fried eggs turned.

Pitch Till You Win – All you can eat.

Shivering Eve – Apple juice.

Sun Kiss – Orange juice.

Sweep The Kitchen – Hash browns.

Vermont – Maple syrup.

Wax – America cheese.

Yellow Paint – Mustard.

So if you hear “flop two with lighthouse” don’t fear, you’re not going to have to eat a structure designed to emit light but just eggs with tomato sauce!!!

Have you heard any others we could add to the list?

James
