Have you ever rented from a small, local car rental company?

Jump to last reply

We usually rent through brokers like Nova or Auto Europe. We've also rented directly from Sixt. This trip we are looking at rentals in Lithuania. Nova doesn't rent in Lithuania. Quotes from AutoEurope, Sixt & the major car companies are very high. However, I am finding very good rental rates from small locally owned firms. These are newer up-to-date cars, and the rental arrangments seem okay. In the past we've always stuck with more well-known firms, but this time I think I will try one of these small local firms.

Is there any valid reason not to go this route? By the way, I know AutoEurope says they will match others' rental rates; last year they wouldn't do this for us because the rate I had found was so much lower than their price.
