To our loyal customers:
We regret to inform you that Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. – the corporate
parent of Dollar and Thrifty, and Hertz Corporation which also owns Advantage –
took action to prevent our customers from booking rentals from these brands through
This action came on the heels of this February 18, 2012 New York Times article, which encouraged
the renting public to "make a statement" by "booking through AutoSlash and patronizing
Hertz, Thrifty and the other companies that play along." We're disappointed that
these companies have now chosen to reverse course and adopt this anti-consumer position,
after having participated in this site since its launch in mid-2010. Apparently,
with more customers booking reservations through our service, they felt they could
no longer support our consumer-friendly model of automatically finding the best
discount codes and re-booking when rates drop.
AutoSlash will not waver in our objective to help people get a great deal on their
rentals. We have exciting product plans on the horizon to make our site even more
useful to you, and we look forward to sharing details with you when the time comes.
If you'd like to stay up-to-date on new developments, please enter your email address
We've also provided links to communicate with Dollar/Thrifty and Hertz should you
have any questions or comments about their decision:
Note that we’ll continue to service existing reservations as we have in the past.
All bookings are secure and guaranteed. You may also track rentals made elsewhere
by clicking on the “Track a rental” tab on our homepage, and we’ll let you know
if we find a better deal.
We very much appreciate your support!
President and CEO
