How to book a rental car when Sold Out?

By  | 

Let me share something that worked for me when renting from

The site was sold out so I could not get any cars for the week end special.

So what I did is booked for the following week.

I then called the local branch where I had the car reserved and told them I had booked the wrong dates can they update to tomorrow instead.


Dates updated, on the roaster for that day even though the site was sold out! Magic.

Now it may not work where/when you are but having an existing reservation makes it easier for their customer service rep to work from.

All she had to do was to update the dates in the system instead of having to take all the info from scratch. Less is more. Voila.
