Misc Rental Questions
« on: July 29, 2019, 04:35:00 PM »
We have one for airlines, one for credit cards so why not one for rentals?

Right? I couldn't find one so I'll start:

I signed up for all the rental statuses per @jj1000 's epic post and now is the first time I actually need a rental since then. So, what do these get me aside from the ability to login to the various sites and to gleefully put a member number in the appropriate box.

In short, I'm looking for an suv type car in FLL in a few weeks and for a week  :D

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

How do tolls on a rental work? I'm talking where cash is not an option.

Just searched for a rental on Autoslash, and then followed their link to Priceline and booked. I noticed that they used a Perkopolis CDP, so I asked them about it. Here's what they said. Does this make any sense?

I may or may not be comfortable using such a CDP, but putting that aside, is their answer true? I doubt it is, and if so then what's AutoSlash doing using random CDPs without telling renters what they're doing? You wouldn't notice it unless you went looking.

Hi. I just booked a Hertz rental through Autoslash, and I see it in my Hertz account (which is great!) but it looks like Autoslash used a Perkopolis CDP. I've heard that some locations may ask for proof of eligibility for CDPs, so how can I use a Perkopolis CDP with no Perkopolis ID? Thanks!
Quote from: AutoSlash Support
Hertz will only ask for proof of eligibility for those CDPs that may be able to prove eligibility to use. Lots of people will use corporate discount codes that they aren't eligible for, and that may be what you are hearing about. We don't offer such discounts.

We only use discounts that anyone is eligible to use. With the exception of those we are ask if you are member of, such as Costco or AAA, where you may be asked for proof at the counter.

I hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions.

Hi and thanks for the quick reply.

Anyone is eligible to use Perkopolis's CDP, even if they have no affiliation with Perkopolis?
Quote from: AutoSlash Support
Yes that's correct.

Concerning what you get from statuses is very dependent on the company (Avis, Sixt, Hertz,...) and location, so a good answer would be a tough ones.
I have a few top elite ones, that get people to prostrate in front of me (not to check if there is damage under the car), and in other locations totally ignored even after reminding them...

My ugly but functioning site https://www.xrentalcars.com has sometimes wow deals. Tip: choose your rental info and search, after which you click [edit] and play around with the countries, and with a bit of luck you get an excellent rate. (try: Asian countries such as India, Philippines etc, as well as an EU country, also the USA, a South American one and the UK)
