Dollar Rent A Car Price Increase 20 May 2011

Hi all,

Fresh from the news that we are expecting a price rise from Budget Rent A Car, Dollar Rent A Car have now contacted us to advise a price increase which will take effect from 20 May 2011.

The price increase will cover most of the peak summer period and will involve some of the more popular vehicles including the Intermediate (IFAR), Standard (SFAR) and the Premium Sports Utility Vehicle (PFAR) and also the Convertible (STAR).


The increases will take effect for all new reservations made from May 20, 2011;

For pick up on or after June 20, 2011

  • Florida: Rates have increased for the STAR and IVAR and  the SFAR and PFAR
  • All areas except Florida: The high season surcharge will commence June 20 (originally it was July 14)
  • All areas except Florida: Rates have increased  for the STAR, IVAR, SFAR and the PFAR

The rate increases will effect all suppliers of Dollar Rent A Car, and is a spiralling effect from the terrible Tsunami that struck Japan in March, which has led to a real shortage of supply’s for the manufacturing of vehicles. promises to try to minimise the impact it has on our pricing by swallowing as much of the increase as possible.

Remember this does not effect rentals that have already been made.

We’ll keep you posted of for further increases which seem inevitable now.

Kind regards,
