Priceline for Car Rental Question

Jump to last reply

I'm considering using priceline to try to rent a car in Seattle in about 35 days. I have a few questions though that I'm wondering if someone can answer.

if I win a bid on a mid-sized car for example, am I guaranteed a mid-sized car? I would hate to put in a bid and end up with an SUV when I get there or something.

I've seen mixed information on who they use for their rentals. For example, in Seattle, Fox and Thrifty are two rental car agencies at the airport. When I look at reviews for these two places they're pretty bad and people complain about cars breaking down, etc. Makes me leary to rent somewhere that I might get a car from one of them. I see on priceline's site that they state that they rent from the major places, Hertz, Enterprise, etc. and then it says and more so I'm not sure what to make of this. I've heard that Hotwire only does from the major ones and not from places like Fox, etc.

Any idea of what's true here? Anything else I should be aware of with trying to bid on a car from here?
