rental car companies

I am renting a car in Jacksonville, and returning it in another city. The rates vary by hundreds of dollars so I need advice on the rental car companies.

I know they all charge a one-way fee, and have found the amount of that fee varies, which is why the rates are so different.

Advantage Rental Car is $200 less, so have reserved online with them, without payment. I then read a number of complaints on a consumer affairs website, all of which state they were overcharged and could not get any return calls from customer service (when they actually answered the phones).

So now I am back to square one. Please give me advice on which companies in Florida are to be trusted for good customer service and reliable cars.

Try using AutoSlash.com https://www.autoslash.com/

When offered a car rental company, check the user reviews just like you did.

Where do you want to drop off the car?

We are flying out of Ft Lauderdale.

I did use autoslash also. Rates are similar.

Now leaning toward Budget.

Any advice on a pickup location near JAX? Comparing prices off airport.

Thanks.

If you are not picking up at the airport, are you planning on taking a taxi from the airport? None of the other Budget locations are very close to the airport, so your taxi will probably cost you about $35 or so. This location may be your best bet: you could hop back up on I-95 and head south: …budget.com/us/fl/jacksonville/qp4.html

Good luck!
