Advantage Rent A Car

I rented a car from Advantage online through Hotwire.com. When I went to the agency they changed the contract and was charging way more than the contract stated. Trying to sell me other products which I did not need. I did not rent the car. Was told to call Hotwire back for a refund. When I called Hotwire, they attempted to refund me. Called Advantage and they told Hotwire that I never came to pick the car up, therefore I did not receive a refund. Not only did they change the contract, but lied. I did not receive a refund of my money. I only lost $63.00 but it’s the principle. Contract was changed and I didn’t agree with it. So I had a right not to rent the car. Now I know why I was the only one at the counter when I came to get the car.

Michael of Fort Worth, TX on March 15, 2017Satisfaction RatingI reserved an Advantage Car using the Orbitz website. Price was good. When I arrived at the airport to get the car, I was told that the policy for local renters was different. There was to be a very large hold put on my debit card, I needed to have a copy of my insurance card, and I was limited to driving 150 miles per day. Yes, I have a local address, but I am currently caring for my parents out of state and I have to fly to Dallas from time to time to check on things at home. I had a round trip ticket from Portland to DFW. I also am fully ensured by no longer carry a paper, I used my smartphone to access my policy/numbers when needed.Let me state that I believe that companies have the right to set their own policies however in this situation I have two major concerns: #1, These additional “rules” were not presented when I reserved the car on Orbitz. The agent said that Advantage has nothing to do with what is on the Orbitz site and that they were not responsible for that. I disagree. If they are allowing their product to be “sold” via a third agent, Advantage SHOULD make sure that the info is accurate on the site. My second major concern is the discriminatory nature of treating “local” residents differently than non-local residents – essentially putting an additional financial burden on someone because of their zip code. Sounds like discrimination to me.I asked the agent why the policy was different for local residents. “Don’t know, company policy.” At that point, since I had not paid for the reservation, much to the shock of the agent, I said, “Alright, thank you very much, please give me my debit card and license back.” I do carry a credit card but was not asked for that. I promptly took my business to another company in the rental complex and gladly gave them my business. At the other business, Budget, I was treated as I am treated anywhere in the country.Companies are responsible for how they are represented, even by third parties – they can blame the “bait and switch” on the third party but because they played this game with me, they lost almost $400 in rental fees for a car that will be driven 40 miles over 5 days. Additionally, I will not rent from Advantage, ever again. This is the FIRST complaint letter I have ever written to a third party site.Helpful?YesNo
