TUI Alamo Car Rental Problem

Booked for July 22, 4 adults and 2 children. I received a 'free' car rental. Just checked the booking having received an amendment notification and can see that TUI/Alamo have allocated us 2 basic cars for the 2 weeks. Only problem is, only 1 of the adults has a driving licence. Currently arguing that nowhere in the booking did it have 2 cars mentioned. I've asked them to change the car rental to something suitable for 6 people but havent heard back for 2 weeks now. Plenty of time to resolve, but given the problems with car rentals I'd be happier getting it sorted now. Anyone had a similar experience with TUI?

I think you'll find it hidden in their Ts&Cs that groups of 5 or over will be allocated two cars, but that you can ask to upgrade to a larger vehicle. However, the "free" car rarely includes sufficient insurances and to upgrade these it can be cheaper to book the car hire seperately. Try discountfloridacarhire/ They're highly recommeded by Dibbers.

From what I've read on here and responded to over the past 17+ years I would hazard a fairly confident guess that unless you've upgraded the insurance from their basic then, just as JJ says, it might cost you a fortune to upgrade. You need CDW with no excess and $1m SLI.

You've probably only got $25k SLI - injure someone in a crash that was your fault with only $25k SLI - hello bankruptcy.

If I were you with nearly a year to go I'd sit tight for a while. Wait for the car supply issue to settle down as we all hope it will then get a price from Andy at DFCH (which will be fully insured). At the same time ask Tui for resolution of what car you really need and a price to include full insurance. If Andy beats those Tui prices just ditch the (alleged) free car.
