So glad I found this thread as we had resigned ourselves to £600+ for car hire. I checked Virgin and have emailed Andy and prices look much more hopeful!

I've never booked with Virgin before, just wondering if we do do they give you the code required to skip the counter for Alamo?

Thing to remember is, cheapest isn't always the best especially in the USA!

Check what you are getting for your money. Andy at DFCH provides "all in" prices rather than you having to seek out the tick boxes to ensure you have the correct cover - worth checking

Yes, you get the code in advance with Virgin (and myself)

Never been competitive on our quotes (maybe because it is over the XMAS period), but I've heard great things so I give him a go each time in case he get me a deal

Hi everyone Iíve not visited for a few months due to cancelled holidays. Anyhow this weekend we decided to re-book for next May. I was shocked when I tried to get a quote for car hire. Came on here to see if anyone knew why and this was the first thread I could see.
On the first Page I noticed Andy say to email him. I had checked his page earlier as Iíve used him before but the Alamo prices where expensive compared to what I wanted.
Two emails later and Iíve booked the SUV I wanted at much much lower price than I could have wished for.
Andy is amazing used him before and made up with his service this week.
Just reach out to him he will beat anyone.

The last time i looked a full size SUV for Aug 20th - Aug 29th was expensive, but better than it had been. I had been planning to make a booking (our original booking last year had two full size SUV for the 8 of us).

Spurred on by everything feeling a lot more promising as to the viability of the holiday, I looked yesterday only to see that the same car is now over £900 on DFCH. Absolutely in shock, even getting a single full size SUV and a full size saloon is a ridiculous amount. Hopefully prices will start to fall again...

Cheapest around at the moment is the insider prices on Ebookers.com with Budget. Just sign up for free and log in. Looks to be around £600 for your dates. Free cancellation. Iíve booked for October. Iíd rather use Alamo but not for an extra £500. Hopefully the prices come down nearer the time.

Iíve looked at this but doesnít give any details on insurance just says no CDW but want £600 deposit when you pick it up on credit card.

Virgin is the cheapest at the mo I can find but Iíve emailed Andy.
