I've used Priceline before and I've been very happy with it. I just got a convertible for $15 a day out of Orlando via Hertz. The problem is that I put in 9pm as the time I'd be picking it up, not 9am. Same with returning.
Now, the returning I'm not as afraid of because I can return it 12 hours earlier and they won't complain. I'm just not sure how to handle the picking it up part. I know you can't change a reservation made on Priceline. I called Hertz corporate and asked if it was possible to rent an extra day, and the lady didn't seem to understand what I was asking and told me I'd have to call the Orlando counter. I got an answering machine there, so I'm not hopeful about getting called back.
It's really not the worst thing in the world. I'm going to Universal the day I am supposed to pick it up, so I could either rent something for a few hours or take a cab or something. Then after I leave the park that night head back and get my car.
What I'm hoping is that I can get someone from Hertz who understands the computer systems that can either a) be a pal and just change the pick up time, or b) start a new reservation confirm and merge the two together. that way I could pick it up early that day without really changing my original rental.
Moral of the story - pay attention to times kids! Not everyone uses a 24 hour clock like they should!
Keep trying the rental counter at Orlando.
How long do you have the car rented for?
And what times are are you actually renting it and returning it?
They'll have plenty of cars there at that time of year, so it really shouldn't be too much of an issue.
