Rental Car Companies Finally Forced to Do Right Thing about Recalled Cars

October 3, 2012 at 10:23 AM | by | Comments (0)

Thereís been an on-and-off battle over recalled rental cars for quite some time, one which has been in and out of the new for at least the last few years. Basically, car rental companies havenít been doing their best when it comes to pulling recalled cars off the lot or sending them in for the necessary repairs. Obviously this isnít a good idea, and thatís especially the case when it results in injuries, accidents, or other bad stuff.

Obviously thereís certain rules and regulations that have to be followed, but the basic premise is that rental car companies need to yank recalled cars off their lots as soon as possible. The new legislation requires the companies to stop renting out vehicles no later than 24 hours after getting the official recall notice, but the time period stretches up to 48 hours if the recall affects more than 5,000 cars within their garage.

Think about picking up your rental car. You do a quick walk around the exterior to ensure that youíve noted all the scratches, dents, and other imperfections. However, the one thing you probably donít look for are creepy crawlies on the interior, but searching for stowaway critters might be something you need to start doing.

A family up in Canada recently had a little bit of a surprise when they picked up their rental car from the Budget counter, as a snake decided it wanted to join them on their summer vacation. Apparently the familyís daughter was the one to announce her findings, as she saw the snake slithering in the back of the SUV.

August 11, 2011 at 8:37 AM | by | Comment (1)

We love a nice rental car, but what we donít love is the cost associated with one. After the airfare and the hotel the travel budget is usually running on empty, but now thereís one rental car company looking to help us out. However, thereís definitely a little bit of a catch.

Budget Rental Car is offering even better deals than with an online coupon, and thatís because they want to wrap your car with advertisements. As long as you donít mind driving around a moving billboard, you might just be able to save a few additional bucks.

Itís that time of year again, as rental car companies need your help to get their cars anywhere but Florida. Weíve seen this before, so expect the deals to start flowing now that the spring weather is just around the corner.

Avis has a deal where you can take a car from the Sunshine State for $20 a day, but your return is somewhat limited as it needs to be dropped off somewhere in the Southeast portion of the country. Both Carolinas, as well as Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Mississippi are all options between April and June. Budget has a pretty similar deal for $20 per day, and youíre free to pick your choice of car including an SUV.
