Other Car Rental Programs (ie. Alamo, Enterprise) - Booking with Yuupon.com
Jul 30, 12, 7:43 pm
I keep an eye on rentals fairly closely and just came across this booking website that has cheap car rentals AND includes collision, liability, add driver, etc....
I did a mock booking for Alamo Vegas this Oct for 6 days and a F/S came out to about $200 with all the add ons including all those stupid fees.
Has anyone had any experiences with Yuupon.com ???

So glad you like the prices on Yuupon ~
A few notes from the founder:
Yuupon started as a daily deals site and has evolved away from vouchers to offer direct bookings on hotels, flights, cruises, car rentals and things to do.
Hotels marked Best Value generally are the best price you will find online - although there are a few, very few days where that may not be the case, always double ck the rates. Best Value hotels are generally at least 15% and up to 65% below the major OTA's
Rates unless noted as non-refundable are refundable and can be changed (flights follow airline rules) with at least 3 days notice, you can manage your reservations in your account.
When booking if the status shows on request the inventory we have on offer is sold out, it's rare that a booking will actually go through if it shows on request.

I wasnt going to answer, because I dont like to bash a website that I dont have a LOT of knowlege about, but since travelgirl12866 likes to promote her own interests, and that is the only thing she adds to flyertalk, I will say that I would not use Yuupon for anything.
Mostly because of truth in advertising issues, and revamp issues.

Ouch tatterdema - would you mind elaborating on the truth in advertising and revamp issues so they can be addressed?
I do often promote Yuupon deals on flyertalk given that some members are interested in saving money on travel, I don't believe that is against the rules. If you look back at my history you will find posts that are not business related.

Nope, I dont want to elaborate. Google is widely available. As for other posts, I wouldnt have an issue with it if you added a disclaimer.

I'd be interested in hearing if any other FT members have used Yuupon and if so, what their experiences have been. Thinking of renting a car through them.
