Fox Rent A Car in Orlando Florida

Jump to last reply

My experience with Fox rent a car was pretty bad. Fox lures its customers in with a really low rate for a rental car in Orlando. That's the only good thing I can say about Fox. The rate was low. $12 for a compact car for 4 days for total cost of about $65.
Trip was "emergency" to visit 90+ year old mom...

Bad stuff about Fox:
1. Fox is an off airport location. Have to wait for bus coming and going. Needed to use by GPS in order to find the place to return auto, since arrival was at 11 pm Thursday evening.
2. The employees attempt to up-sell everything. Inside, denied any upgrade 4 times. Finally, after 9 hours of travel, handed paperwork, "ititial here". Bad idea.
3. Outside, again the upgrade. Started with, "oh, you will not be comfortable in that car." Was told car I was given was a "free upgrade", who knows.
Had to still drive 1.5 hours to destination, so glad to finally get out of there and on the road.
With all the insurance, taxes, fees and scams, you will end up with a bill DOUBLE of your expectation, so definitely equals other places and you won't have to deal with our frustrations and rude employees.
4. Return was problem, first finding and then finally getting bill. Why so much after internet booking numbers? Was to be about $70. Discovered when returning that the auto collision and emergency repair that I told them I'm already covered with my current insurance was ADDED, more than doubling the cost.
Counter person clearly did not care. So asked for manager and Manager Dan Snow did not even pretend to work with me in any way to adjust the unnecessary charges.

All the other car rental companies in Orlando will need to be out of cars before I'll rent from Fox again. It's a cheap rental, and you get what you pay for, and Buyer Beware... read EVERYTHING no matter what you verbally tell them.
