“Dollar....Very helpful”

I have to say that when in Florida I have always used Dollar Car Rentals, usually opting for the Airport Pick up and Drop off...We've used them at Tampa, Orlando and Kissimee.. Everyone hates paying those extras, and that ' including free car hire' that we keep getting thrown down our necks...

Excellent

cheaper then alot of its competitors

nothing to report

I have used Dollar Car Rental twice now and have had absolutely no problems whatsoever. The first time was back in 2000. We were heading to the States to do a road trip and I was looking for a three week rental that wasn’t going to charge the earth. On all my searches, Dollar came up consistently...

After a last minute visit to friends in the US was arranged, it was quickly decided that I would need some form of transport when I got there, as the US is rather big! So I jumped on Google and started checking out car rental companies. Those of you that have found yourselves in a similar...

“Dollar Car Rental L.A.”

published 04/07/2001

Good transfers from the airport and quick service

No-one checks the state of the vehicle before you ...

Having recently been on my first fly-drive holiday to the U.S.A. I was interested to see what quality of vacation I would have driving around America instead of flying. I had been told by people that it was a better way to see the country. We found the cheapest way to hire a car was through our...

helpful staff.

dangerous

Last week a colleague and I were sent to Boston on business and my company arranged for us to collect a rental car at the airport. They chose to use Dollar, a company I'd never heard of before. Things started well, the courtesy shuttle bus was easy to find, they helped us on with our luggage, and...

“Dollar rip off”

published 02/02/2001

None

Loads of hassle for upgrading.

I must admit I have used Dollar twice now. I don't think that I would use them again. Both times I have been to Orlando airport and the staff all try the hard sell. I always upgrade the car to an Intermediate before I fly out then I can zoom straight off to the Hotel. No such luck , they always...

“Dollar Rent a Car Orlando”

published 21/11/2000

Wide range of vehicles / ease of transactions

None

Dollar or $……it’s not. Dollar rent a car provide a wide range of vehicles for those who are fly-driving in Orlando from Sanford Airport. Having just returned from a fly-drive holiday there (the first I have done) I was really impressed with the set up. Having arrived at the airport after a 9 hour...

DOLLAR: BAIT & SWITCH Reserved a Dodge Caliber hatchback ($109.88), but when I arrived in Albuquerque, they said they were all out of the "base model" (I doubt there were many to begin with) but said I could have a Cobalt sedan at that price or a higher-priced upgrade of the Caliber. After the agent tacked on the damage waiver, surcharges, airport concession fee, and various taxes, the upgraded Caliber came to $435. I needed the hatchback for my photography equipment, so decided to take it and try to get an adjustment later. After the trip, hours of dealing with several Dollar customer service people came to nothing. They make sympathetic mouth noises and make sure no adjustment happens.

Dollar Rent A Car in Ft. Myers, FL is attempting to rip me off with a fraudulent additional charge. Two months after my vacation I received a letter stating that I owe them a "toll charge" of $0.75 which, with penalty and fees, comes to a total amount of $39.27. I was never near the location where the toll charge supposedly occurred. They did not send me an official citation, only a report written on Dollar stationary. Go to www.ripoffreport.com and check for similar Dollar scams. They are a dishonest company and I will never again rent a car from them. Consumer beware!

Just hired car in California, couple of tips, if you book through Dollar UK and book with your card, check your statement, both myself and another member of the family were charged TWICE. Also return your car with a full tank as we were charged $7.99 a gallon on return, which they dont make clear.

If you hire from Dollar at Sanford Airport Florida be very very careful and insist on bringing back the car with a full tank of petrol or else they will precharge you for a tank of petrol at silly rates.I said I would bring the car back with a full tank of petrol but was told no I had to bring it...
