Virgin car hire

I've just been looking on virgins site for car hire and noticed that a full size suv with alamo is under 700 (july/august 2018) while with everyone else alamo seem to be astronomical , ive booked with Discount Florida Car Hire using budget and this cost 729 although i haven't paid yet . So can anyone use virgin car hire even if you haven't booked flights through them ? And do they do free cancellations like Andy at DFCH ?

I used to use them all the time, not so much now as for my dates Alamo Brits comes out cheaper.
Always book via VA not VH as your documents come within hours or a few days. With VH they can take months!
Bit weird really as VH are the provider anyhow.

It is weird isn't it.

Now Virgin always advertised free cancellation. It still is but you have to hunt to find that under the FAQ's. Also they say it's 30 to cancel and over 100! But buried in there is also free cancellation so I would screen shot that and keep it if required.

Try Netflights for an Alamo car as well, some keen prices. Only 1 driver though whereas Brits and Virgin have 2.

VA coming up cheaper for my dates in August '18 also. Alamo Brits, DFCH, both in at silly prices.

In another thread I had running, Andy/DFCH alluded to having theirs and Brits quotes using the high season premium for the whole rental, even if only the first couple of days fell into that period (which mine do). No idea how VA get around this, but 411 vs 800 (Intermediate SUV, 2 drivers) is a bit of a no-brainer.

I have just booked with Virgin Atlantic as they were by far the cheapest for Alamo. All seems good so far. Document arrived via email quickly and I was able to do online check in and skip the line.

Is that via usrentacar using the link on their website?

If so they are fine. Just check all the insurances are ok though.

Could you drop me a quick email and I'll take a look and have a word with my supplier to see if I can do anything with the Alamo price.

USRentaCar charge 50 cancellation fee according to the terms on their site.
