    I need to get things moving on the car hire. Do I go for....

    Alamo compact 4 door Chevrolet Cavalier (or similar) for 468.
    Advantage: choose own car from selected group

    Dollar compact 4 door Dodge Neon (or similar) FOR 460.
    Advantage: Can get a free express pass to jump the queue

    I`d go with Dollar if only for the queue jumping bit. [A bit cheaper too.]

    I'd choose Dollar, expecially after last year's experience with Alamo.

    Both cars are pretty much equal so if you can get the car quicker with Dollar then I'd go with them too.

    I'd give Dollar a try this time. Although, I've not had problems with Alamo, it seems any number of visitors have, so give them a miss, and try the one that comes with a better recommendation.

    I think they are all bringing it in which I think is a bit silly when you pay up front for your insurances over here

    We were told we had to have this last year with Alamo and the man was quite rude when we said no. He really tried to put the frighteners on about how we could be charged $100s if we had a flat tyre

    He threw the paperwork at us when it was completed, never even told us where to go, so it was a good job we knew roughly where it was.

    The trouble is that you are so tired after getting off the flight, they think they can talk you into anything :rolleyes008:
