Do NOT Rent a Car From Dan Dooley

Jump to last reply

Do NOT use Dan Dooley! They are running a SCAM. If you refuse their over-priced LDW ($250.00 for 6 days), they give you a car with engine problems.

I rented a car from them on a pre-paid voucher. I had only driven for 20 minutes when my clutch went out. I have driven a manual car for 40 years with no problems - I do know how to drive a stick.

They charged me for towing and for the clutch repair. They told me that a motorist phoned in to report that I was "riding the clutch". First of all, there would be NO outward sign that I was riding the clutch. Secondly, I was NOT and I have a passenger witness (inside the car) to confirm that.

They were extremely snotty to deal with, and will they will not even discuss the matter further. I have disputed the charges on my credit card.

Do NOT give in to this scam treatment of tourists. DO NOT rent from Dan Dooley!
