Hotwire Complaint - Bait and switch
HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT -- I made a car rental reservation and got what LOOKED like an excellent rate of $142. it turned out to be through Dollar which didn't bother me because I had them through Hotwire before. Once they did give me a gas guzzler rather than the compact I reservered but since they didn't charge anymore I wasn't bothered.
This time I showed up and was told they only had a Jeep Cheroke and it would be $30 more a day. When I refused the smug clerk told me he could 'call around'. the best he could do is $305. quite an increase from 142. No apology offered by either Hotwire or Dollar. Avoid them.
