DALLAS/COSTA RICA, TEXAS -- Set up a normal rental in Central America, they faxed me a confirm of price which I took with me. Arrived to out sourced rental car company Hola Car rental, they attempted to increase the price by $100 totally disregarding the confirmed price I had from ACE, leaving me stranded in remote area off site late in day. Forcing me to return to airport in attempt to find another rent car company in foreign country at night. Not a good thing but I will not be extorted for money. Called the company upon return to US they had little comment, not even a "Sorry" this happened. They are a Scam in my book.

This sort of thing happens frequently in Latin America, Gringos are stranded, don't speak Spanish, scared and thus will pay the increase. I did not, I have been here before. Leaving tourists stranded in remote area at nite is BAD Business, this is a SCAM,. Beware!

Do not ever rent a care from ACE. They will rib you. We rent a car from ACE and couldn't double check any damage/scratches in the car as we were in a hurry. During drop off, they told there is a small scratch under the car, which we cannot see. (This is just a minute dot scratch). A week after received a cliam stating for $500/- to pay back. When called the Claim service, they said your credit card has rental car protection plan which will cover the amount. We were surprised to know from ACE service that we have that in our credit card. They forced us to claim our credit card and get the money to pay them. That was such a cheating from ACE that they find all the information from the credit information we give and put a blame on customers that we scratced the car. PLEASE DONT EVER GET RENTAL CAR FROM ACE.1 Replies - Latest reply on 11/22/2010Add reply
It has been 14 days and we have not been refunded a deposit on our debit card. Their customer service skills are poor. The 1800-622-9090 number can give "no" help, they always refer me to a 714-855-2555 number. I am waiting for them to contact me about my money. So, please don't make the same mistake. There is NO Customer focus! Add reply
The car was not available. They were over booked. The staff was not at all cooperative. They made us wait for 45 minutes in the line and when we reached the counter they said they are not available.

Then we ended up getting from some other car rental company.
DENVER, COLORADO -- I had made a reservation for a large SUV as we were a party of 6 arriving at Denver International Airport. The number on the confirmation for shuttle pick up was incorrect - I had tried calling it before leaving for Denver and it was a fax number. I called the office and they said that I should call the office to request pick up when I arrive at Denver. I mentioned to them that we would be arriving late at night and the lady at the office said that it was fine.
We get to Denver and call Ace Rental - and there is no response. Finally after three tries and man responds saying that the rental office is closed and we could call back at 8 in the morning.
We had to make other arrangements and finally arrived at our destination at 5 in the morning - four hours later than we should have!
I am really disappointed!!
