Tomorrow, our little family leaves to go visit my grandparents and mother in Kentucky. We take a train out of Portland, Oregon, get off in Chicago and rent a car and drive down to KY. First time I've seen my mom in 13 years and this is the first time they all get to see my 8 month old boy. Needless to say, I am stressed all to hell about traveling with my boy. So I call Alamo car rental just to make sure that the car we reserved back in February is all a go, and dude tells me that the location is closed that day due to the holiday. Ok, cool car rental people need a holiday weekend too, but WHY THE HELL DIDN'T THEY TELL ME THAT WHEN I RESERVED??? If I hadn't called, we would have showed up to a closed business with no ride 2500 miles away from home with a baby. So I explain this all to dude and he tells me that the airport location is open 24 hours a day, so I'm like cool...taxi ride to the airport get the car and bail out of that place. NOPE....because the "reservation" changed so close to the pickup day, they wanna charge me another 200 bucks! Because my rate was "February" rate and not today's rate. So I am Pissed at this point. Dude was 100% inflexible, dude's manager was 100% inflexible. Total tools.

Because my wife and I don't own/use credit cards, we pay cash for everything, Alamo is the only rental place that I found that accept cash for a rental along with a round trip ticket. So, I have no options to change.

My wife is sharpening her teeth for the counter person at the airport (feel bad for them already lol), so maybe something will get changed. It was their mistake, they should fix it....

Anyways, thanks for the rant Smile

Beware of Alamo...

I've been driving a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee for the last 2 weeks, I have to give it back today Sad I've been rocking that Hemi every chance I got.

Unfortunately with the way transactions are going, you will need some sort of credit card/electronic form of payment to purchase anything in the future.
