Car Hire - Any Bargains to be had?

Hello

We go August 17th and I'm now looking to book car rental. I am a Hertz Gold Club Member but they have an offer on at the moment (for 15% off and free additional driver) that sadly ends on July 31st so will be no good for us

Where should I start looking? I've had a butchers at US Rentacar but their best prices seem to be with Dollar and I've read some horrible reports about them recently regarding overcharging and upselling etc

I don't know where to start and not get ripped off

Thanks in advance

I booked Dollar with them this year and had no problem at all.

I always go for the cheapest and so far no real problems.

I used budget the first year and wouldn't use again. Got hard sell, no free upgrade despite the offer and a pretty crappy car!
Last year used Alamo and would use again, we liked picking out our car.
This year were going with Dollar as they were cheapest for Int SUV, just check ur paperwork and stick to your guns and say NO!
