Hotwire Hotwire.com Company charged me $211. immediately for a future car rental and would not allow a change or cancellation less than 48 hours later Internet
A car rental (Alamo) was booked through Hotwire with the rental to be used locally while my car was going to be in the repair shop. When I was notified by the shop that the parts would not arrive in time, I called Hotwire immediately. Since it'd been less than 48 hours since the booking was made, and the rental was over three weeks in the future, I assumed they would allow me to change/cancel the reservation.
I was informed that none of that mattered because it was a "hot deal" and therefore I would lose the $211. Be forewarned if you book with Hotwire you are basically screwed. I will never book anything with them again as they are greedy ripoff artists. SPREAD THE WORD: Don't EVER book with HOTWIRE. Book directly with the rental company because any savings, if it all, is not worth it.
