Rented a car in France through Autoslash -- paid a deposit to Autoslash with balance due at rental agency. When I arrived agency had no record of deposit, after prolonged call to Hertz I paid the full amount. Contacted Autoslash and for 6 weeks was promised a refund by Chris for their mistake. It never came and he eventually didn't write me back. I had to dispute with my credit card for a refund. AVOID.

I've used Priceline directly in the past and had terrible experiences. I tried AutoSlash now and the booking went through Priceline. Only the links in the email from AutoSlash resulted in an error on the Priceline page that opened. It said "We were unable to complete your last request. Try your search again."
So I tried the 'Browse All Vehicles/Locations" link and it said 'We're sorry, the car you chose is no longer available due to changes in pricing or demand. But we've found these other great deals for you.' Those great deals were over $200 more.
I wrote AutoSlash on their website contact form and when I clicked submit it froze and didn't accept my message.

I priced my car rental at 579.00 (Thrifty) after shopping and shopping. Pick up in L.A., dropping off in Phoenix 8 days later. I stumbled upon Auto Slash and inputted my information and every few days I would get an email saying they found a cheaper rate. The Autoslash rates when all the way down to 174.00 (Hertz) and I pulled the trigger. I prepaid, and called Hertz to confirm everything was legit. It was. I just got home from vacation and very happy I saved 400.00. I am really still shocked. Thanks Auto Slash!

I've been trying to book a car through Autoslash pretty much all morning and I have nothing to show for it but hours of wasted time!! I submitted my request for a quote and within 10 minutes or less they got back to me with a fantastic quote, so no complaints there. I then clicked through the link, which took me to Priceline. Once a clicked through the Priceline button, every single time it comes up error. They do of course have a working link to a more expensive rental for my requested city, date & time. Then I come to find out that Autoslash is actually owned by Priceline. This is classic bait and switch, PERIOD!

My car rental experience lasted over six months, and I ended up with a great deal from AutoSlash. I used the cancel and rebook feature offered by them and the rates for 16 days on Maui went from $680 (cheapest rate I could find) initially to a final rate of $425 from Hertz - this is almost $250 less than the next lowest price I could find.
Every rebooking/cancellation activity was perfect with a fast refund on my cancellations. AutoSlash responded to my email questions quickly, which gave me a sense of confidence in them.
I picked up the car yesterday, and it went perfect.

It surprises me that more people do not know about auto slash. I am sure glad I found it in a google search a few years back. I always cross check their prices against all the big players and without fail they save me 100's every rental!!

I was an avid autoslash user. I travel monthly and rent vehicles often.
I even told all my friends about the company, to my regret. I made a reservation, cancelled it, and made another all within an hour. It has been nearly three weeks and I have not received my refund. After 16 back and forth emails(they don;t accept phone calls for customer service), they say they can't issue a refund to my credit card c of a problem on their end and they must mail me a check, after it's sat for three weeks now I have to wait another week for a check to come in while interest accrues on my card(or they told me I could dispute the charge with my CC company). They refused to do anything about it, they wouldn't pay my interest or give me any type of future discount or savings. Basically I was out $200+ for a month when their refund policy is 7 days. DO NOT RENT HERE, what a nightmare!

My previous post drew a response from AS and we communicated very clearly about the error. They were aware of the underlying problem and were already working on a fix with the rental agency. When we arrived at our destination, the car was ready and there was no problem with the car rental company. (Note: Hawaii implemented a marginal increase in the daily rental surcharge tax, from $3/day to $5/day, which confused some pricing offers made by car rental companies, resulting in lots of customer confusion around the increase.).
AutoSlash did yeomans work behind the scenes to rectify an error that was not their doing. They were great to work with and we will use them again in the future.

I asked a friend about where I could save some money for a car Rental. I was sent here to AutoSlash. I'm a member of Costco too; I've done my comparing between the two. I've found that - there are no real savings with AutoSlash. Costco is much easier and quicker than AutoSlash. Yes, this is better than many other places, but Costco is just smoother and you can get better prices too. Thanks for reading.

Great, cheaper car rentals!
Review by JohnG Channaiah1 year ago
We are going to WDW. Prices for car rentals have been so high. I signed up for autoslash and this morning they emailed me. I got a full size for a full week for $207. I am also able to drop the car off right at the Dolphin resort in Disney. The rental is for Alamo also, not an off brand. I paid up front but you can cancel with no penalty up to 48 hours before. Very impressed so far. I went onto the Alamo site and the same rental with dropping off on Disney property was over $400.

I was on a shoestring budget going to Orlando and Treasure Island, FL. I had put in hours of research looking for a car rental that I could afford. Only thing even remotely close were the rental companies where you have to get a shuttle at the airport to take you to their off-site car rental business, and the reviews were horrible. Finally, in frustration, I googled "how to find the best car rental price". That led me to Autoslash - within 5 min I had an email with links to the best car rental prices, many at reputable businesses, like Alamo. I rented a mid-size car for 7 days for $180. I spent maybe...5 minutes getting my car and then returning it at the airport. Thank you Autoslash, we appreciated your service! I will be recommending you to all my friends.

When I am transferred to Priceline the price of the rental is more. Once by 30 dollars a day. AutoSlash has problems

Used to be a dedicated Autoslash user.
They seemed to have sold out during the summer of 2017. Compared prices of my last 5 rentals to my latest search and the price has almost doubled.
Will never use them again.
Review by Hordlife Janniche2 years ago
I have used Autoslash for several years. Always saved a lot of money! No more! They must have been bought out by priceline or something. Now you haveto go through more steps and for the last 3 times in the past 4 months, they came down once after the initial priceline quote, and never nomore. Completely different than previously.
Review by Annaeka McCron2 years ago
Autoslash is a must use if you are renting a car. I have saved thousands of dollars over the course of a year using Autoslash. Here is my story: I moved to North Caarolina to work as a wilderness guide, my schedule was one week in the woods and one week at home. When I moved, I could not afford a car, and was not sure of a solution to my need for transportation when I was off of work. Luckily for me, Autoslash appeared in my life just at that time! Just about every off-shift for the past year and a half, I have used Autoslash to book a car rental, typically at a price between $80-$115 per week. The opportunity to use Autoslash allowed me to drive in band-new cars, trucks, Jeeps, SUVs, all for a cost of about $200/month, while also keeping my car insurance costs low and car maintenance cost at $0, even though I would drive from western North Carolina down to South Florida, to Indianapolis, Chicago, Princenton, Chattanooga, and all through the southern states. I am so grateful for Autoslash, thanks so much! Highly recommended!

Autoslash rocks. Saved $170 for a week in Florida.
I saw this on US News & World Report and wanted to try it. As a test, I booked through my typical brand name car rental company for my Florida trip.......1 Week @ $466 (includes AAA discount).
Then I tried Autoslash. Their price (different rental company) was $380.
I reserved it.
I also "requested a quote". About 10 minutes later they emailed with a major rental company for $290 for the week. I re-booked it! AND, if the price drops, I will save more!
Super easy, big savings.
Review by Sherman Williams Maggi2 years ago
I have used autoslash at least a dozen times and have saved money almost every time. While the initial price quote may not seem much different that other websites, if you register your reservation, they let you know if a lower price becomes available for your dates (taking into account any discounts you are eligible for like AAA, etc.). If you choose to accept a lower rate, you do have to book at the lower rate and cancel the initial reservation. I always then followup with a phone call to the rental company to confirm the reservation and be sure my frequent renter number is added. I just saved $100 on a 3 day rental in Alaska because of autoslash. I've never had any difficulty picking up my car or being charged more than quoted. I love this website.
ps you can register a reservation that you made yourself on another site or a reservation that you made through autoslash.
Review by Mikanu2 years ago
I decided to use a bunch of sites to get the best rate. This one pops up as the highest rated. The prices they came up with, after a half hour wait, were not anywhere near as low as several of their competitors. The other came up with better prices with a click, these guys make you give them personal information, wait for an email, and then come up with at least $5+ higher rates? So .....I'd STRONGLY not recommend this at all!

When looking to book a car rental from the Savannah Airport, then the Burlington VT airport, for an August 2016 trip, I was met with some of the highest car rental fares this past summer... I started looking in May for rates, and everything was crazy expensive... so I booked and would keep checking, and if lower rates came out I'd book at the lower rate... who has this kind of time... while in this process, I came across Auto Slash... and their policy is to continue price checking up until your rental time.... so I kept my reservations, and booked with AutoSlash... over time my Savannah rental for 10 days came down a total of $125 about half what it was originally, and my Burlington 5 day rental came down $20 (however the price over all went up nearly $100 on Burlington rentals). In all cases, I called in to each rental agency and confirmed my reservation, and could even go on line and find it... NOTE: there is an AutoSlash reservation number, AND a different confirmation number for the car rental company... use the rental car agency's confirmation number to find your reservation NOT the AutoSlash reservation number... I was able to print my reservations directly from the agency each rental was with... all pricing was honored.... And trust me, since it was my first experience I double and tripled checked that this company was really getting me the best price... and it did!! Way easier to use Auto Slash than having to monitor yourself for price drops and specials. I'll never use any other form of car rental booking again... so long as the same service is provided. And when I had questions, thru email, all email responses were handled quickly... the only thing that didn't work was when replying if one has a need for an 'urgent' response time, to reply with the existing correspondences with all the confirmation info in tact, I could NOT change the subject line to say 'urgent'. I actually had to start a new email thread...otherwise it was very easy to navigate, and communicate. Thank you Auto Slash!!!

As a first time user of AutoSlash I was not trusting the website (didn't know the website existed or anyone around me).
As being 4th of July holiday the rates for family Vans were crazy (too freaking high) so I tried the website and as promised, I got a great deal from a reputable company in the LAX airport (only one minor counter was I had miles restrictions a day, minor issue for me because I knew I wasn't going to drive more than 100 miles a day).
Autoslash send me several emails when I booked my reservation through them, the important email and the one that took some of my doubts away was a reservation email with both booking # for autoslash and the main rental company. With that booking #, I went to the rental company website and typed the booking or reservation # provided and I could find that indeed they had a reservation on my name showing the expected rate and the dates. I Printed that page and took with me (just in case).
The day to pick up the rental, we did encounter a problem at the rental company. In short words we spend about an hour arguing because the counter employee messed up something in the computer and didn't wanted to honor the rate. Immediately I called Autoslash, as being a free site they don't have live customer support but I left a VM and sent an email with the URGENT word in it as they instructed (THEY CALLED ME BACK RIGHT AWAY) one Autoslash rep was on the phone with me the entire time and they talked directly to the counter associate and then the manager. At the end, the manager was able to modify the rate and provide me with the rate I booked and everything worked out! Even after the week rental, when I returned the MiniVan I didn't encounter any issues!
Honestly, I had a great price and best experience with Autoslash... I would recommend it to anyone!

Ive used AutoSlash for about two years and take two major vacations a year and other misc. trips requiring a rental car. Last Spring during Spring Break, they saved me over $1000 on a two month rental. In November we are in Hawaii, they have our midsized car down to around $180 for a week....that includes taxes etc.
Love These guys.
Review by Aishel3 years ago
4 days before picking up a car rental that was reserved two weeks in advance, I received an email telling me my rental had gone up over $100 more than my original reservation. Fortunately, I was able to book my rental for an even lower price than I was quoted through Autoslash. How is it that the very online price I directly can get is lower than one quoted by Autoslash? To say the least, I feel totally ripped off by Autoslash and will not use them again.

Reservation for a Suburban in Honolulu on 7-22-2016. Got to Avis counter who said Auto Slash is "Scammers, Liars and Thieves. Would not honor the Avis reservation without us being a member of something we have never heard of. Charged us $800 more than what we had a reservation for. We called Avis 5 days ago and they verified the reservations.
