Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I was going to book a full-size car for $37.88 bu the website link appeared to be "broken". So I called the number and gave them the reference id for this price. The guy on the phone said I could book the car at that price and then right before payment said "oh that car is no longer available... you can book the same one for $66 though."

I asked him why the price increased almost 90% during checkout and he said the deals change by the minute and that the $66 was still a very good price and that I should book it. I told him I wanted nothing to do with these bait and switch scams and that I'd never do business with them again. Not out any money but they did waste 45 minutes of my life .
