Car rental experience

Jump to last reply

I am in the process of renting cars for our trip to Europe. I can report that www.economycarrentals.com is much cheaper than Kemwel when renting a car in Poland and returning the car to the original location. Kemwel's rate has a deductible, Economy Car's does not. I'll give the actual rate in my trip report in about six months.

But my original intent was to discuss Kemwel vs. Autoeurope. I plan to rent two cars in France because I'll be staying there more than 31 days and my Visa card does not carry the CDW (with no deductible) for more than 31 days at a time. The first rental, starting in Paris, would cost $322 from Kemwel and $345 from Autoeurope. The second rental starting in Périgueux would cost $358 from Kemwel and $383 from Autoeurope. Back in December I received an e-mail from both companies giving me vouchers toward my next rental. I applied the $30 Kemwel voucher by clicking on it for the Périgueux rental and got the car for $328. I tried the same thing for the Paris rental with Autoeurope (they are sister companies using the same telephone personnel in off-hours) and the price was the same as when searching the internet. I called, and after consultation with the supervisor, the person on the phone told me that the voucher was only good for telephone orders which would cost originally $389 rather than $345, so that the on-line price is cheaper than the phone price with the discount. I am questioning this, but have not yet received a response from the higher ups.

Kemwel seems to give better service.
