Airline Network car hire??

Options
Evening all.

I'm looking to (finally) book my car hire for this summer's family holiday in Portugal, and the best price I'm getting is from http://www.airline-network.co.uk/.

In fact, they are a lot cheaper than anyone else. Before I commit, can anyone allay my uber-pessimist fears and offer any experience of these guys???

    Be wary. I've used them 3 times also. Twice they were fine - the third time our flight times were changed and we had to change airlines and the length of time we neede the hire car for. Airline Network were hopeless - no-one seemed to understand (or care) how to make the changes. Everytime I rang them I had to explain the whole story to someone different who transferred me to someone else who I had to explain the story to again - and then again. Total lack of ownership of the problem. Front office don't know what back office does. :mad:

    IMHO they are fine as long as everything goes smoothly. If you need to change your booking - they are dreadful!

    Ditto - Have used them before with no problems in USA.

    Have you tried?

    Also worth asking companies to price match.

    Also used them for car hire in the USA, car hire was with Dollar and cheaper than anything else I could find (and I did a lot of searching). I had to change my booking twice, size and dates of car hire with no problems at all.
    There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.

    I'll repeat everyone else's comments (except for jbro's), in my experience they are spot on.

    Also worth having a look at Car Hire Search...

    Despite the price match guarantee shown on Holiday Autos website, they will NOT pricematch. I got a really cheap quote for USA car hire from Airline Network (£130 for 1 week), Holiday Autos were charging around £170 for the same. So i called up Holiday Autos and asked them to match it, they basically told me to bog off....trading standards anyone?

    Thanks for the replies.

    Unfortunately I've missed the boat, and the quote is now nearly £400 more than it was last week...

    Doh!

    What you need is a Promotional Code to bring the price down.

    Try out 504335 for Hertz.co.uk in the CDP field for 10% discount.
    Also try out ebayargus for Argusrentals.com for 10% discount.

    Never the less use quidco.com for cashback when you book the car.

    Goodluck
