Hotwire Car Rental at Tampa Airport TPA

Jump to last reply

I need a rental car for 2 days pickup/return TPA. I get really good rates on Hotwire, much cheaper than even the discount I can get with my SWA FF account (about $54 for 2 days vs. $83).

But Hotwire lists the companies the rental can possibly be from (all the majors) and says it is "in terminal". However, I know for a fact one of the companies they name has no location in terminal (SIXT), it is 2 miles away. I called Hotwire to ask them what's up with that, and the CS agent claims that was just a list of all their partners to give you an idea, but if the quote said "in terminal" it definitely would be and no shuttle would be involved and it wouldn't be SIXT if they were 2 miles away.

So, any experience with Hotwire on such issues, can I trust them? I'd like to use them as I don't care much about the company I use but I know their purchases are totally nonrefundable.
