Mobile Alamo through ebookers

Anyone booked a car with Alamo through ebookers? It seems to be half the price of booking direct with Alamo, or even using Alamo Brits. Im assuming the ebookers price includes everything required insurance wise - it says that it includes zero excess collision waiver. Is that the main thing I need?
Thanks in advance!

Never used ebookers but there are two fundamental insurances that you absolutely must have. One is CDW which you appear to have but more importantly, in my opinion, is SLI for at least $1m, This is otherwise known as Extended Protection with Alamo and third party liability with others.

Don't go with anyone who only offers the state minimum SLI cover of $20k

There should be no excesses on any car hire insurance either.

I try not to recommend Andy more than three times a day on here as I'm sometimes accused of being a shareholder in DFCH.

Yes booked two 28 day hires with Alamo with him recently and totally confident that all insurances are included. Also very easy to do OLCI/STC when you've booked.

You are probably the reason I use him! Lol

Every time we go, we use him... I have never had any problems and I know what I'm getting. I don't do the online stuff... past few times we have been straight to the desk then car. I might try it this time, the guy we got at mco alamo desk was on the hard sell... I think i said no Thank You to him maybe 33 times!

I've found some good prices with Budget through ebookers but their website is very poor in that it doesn't tell you what 3rd party insurance you get with the rental.

Expedia own Travelocity, Orbitz, Hotels.com, Hotwire, Trivago, CheapTickets and eBookers, among others.

I am just off the phone and a I spoke to an agent regarding carhire and he said after checking with a few companies that it would cost extra to purchase SLI insurance.
