Default Rental Cars at LOE

Doug or anyone,

I called the enterprise number on the LOE page and was told I can't drop the car off on Sunday, only Monday. I asked about a drop box and she said there isn't one. Does this sound right? What rental company are others using?



Thanks, Tobin

Just talked to the actual rental place in El Paso (vice the 1 800 number) and she said I can drop the car off at the business on Sunday(they will be closed), but that it's then a 20 minute ride back to the airport and she confirmed that I can't drop it at the airport and leave the keys in it. Aren't most folks leaving Sunday and if so, what are you doing?

What happened to last year's rental company? They were great to work with, priced right, and had car drop off right at the museum on Sunday morning.

Hey Nathan,
Advantage gave us an ID code to use and a number to call - SEVERAL people called it and couldn't get through. Multiple tries on multiple days. We brought it to their attention and they couldn't have cared less. So....Enterprise and Avis and the others were given a chance. Still working on more solutions.

Default Enterprise worked for me

I've got an intermediate reserved, will be at the Santa Teresa airport and the drop off is there as well. I used the El Paso phone # IIRC. (Don't have it handy just now.)

Hawk, D, and others,

Just talked with Rocio (same person as yesterday) and she said they are still ironing out the "drop-off" issue. Dropping the car off at the airport on Monday is not a problem, it's dropping it off on Sunday since Enterprise is closed and they don't want the keys locked in the car. They are working on a solution (coordinating with someone at the airport that folks can give their keys to). She did say that in any case that the car would be billed through to Monday, regardless of whether it was dropped off Sunday or not. I reserved a car but she's going to call me when they get a good fix on the drop off thing.

B,
T

Default Advantage Car Rental at LOE

I finally got through to Advantage and they sent me a confirmation:

Thank You for Choosing Advantage-Rent-A-Car.

CONFIRMATION#: -------034-EP SANTA TERESA FLY IN

Rental Location # 146 Date/Time 10/13/06 12:00
LAS CRUCES
126 E AMADOR
LAS CRUCES,NM 88001-3647
505-541-0411

You might try calling again. They said to be sure and bring proof of your own insurance or you would have to purchase insurance.

I am bringing a couple with me that will be flying back out of ELP so they are going to drop off the car on Sunday but I think Advantage has arranged for drop off's on Sunday at Santa Tresa as well.

I had a reservation at Enterprise that I cancelled because they wouldn't take a Sunday drop off and were also going to charge for 3 days instead of 2.
