alamo car hire

with all the trouble people are having with Alamo with wrong cars in the rows along other things would it be worth rebooking with another company.
I have cancelation on my booking and could book the same car with dollar for a few less.
I have done on-line check-in and skip the counter with Alamo if that makes any difference.

Just as long as you know what you should get as a minimum then I have no problem with Alamo and have always got an upgrade thanks to them putting the wrong car in the row

Can you help please. Im travelling with just my kids and weve booked a full size 4 door - what should I be looking for as a minimum? Or should I just go for whatever looks the biggest

I came out Friday and had a full size booked my choice was a Chevy
Malibu or Chevy Malibu in sizei compare it to a jag saloon
But wayway under spec its got a sat nav reversing camera and a USB port thats it
Its ok to drive easy enough to park with the camera would I pick it again Id certainly look for something else if available
We are sticking with Alamo at the minute for 2 reasons free second driver and straight to garage
The first the most important as this trip its a 32 day trip and in November a 42 day trip and at $10 plus extra a day for some companies its a no goer for us just because of extra charges

Our last four full sizes have been Hyundai Sonata. Nissan Altima, Chevy Malibu and Ford Fusion all I'd say Mondeo size.

All had reversing cameras but never had built in satnav. All from garage B. We look for lowest mileage and minimal external damage.

Thank you all. When first booking this holiday I was confident about driving as have driven in Florida before, but as time has gone on and reading posts about other people's horrendous driving I'm getting more nervous. This holiday has 2 halves - the first 2 weeks is just me and my children and we will stay in Orlando. The second half DH arrives, we swap the full size to a SUV intermediate and we are travelling to the Gulf coast and the keys. We chose Alamo so we could miss the queue, choose our car and to get the extra driver.

Try not to worry about the driving people will only tell you the bad stories and not the thousands of trips we all take with no problems what's so ever.

As above look for Mondeo size car with little mileage as possible remember it's only a rental and you give it back soon enough.
