Subject: Double Bookings
We have never double booked cars, ever, and have always had a car when we arrived--even in Florida in the winter, Frankfurt, or Zurich in the height of summer.

I have heard that car rental places have been considering charging for a no show and, if people continue to abuse the system, the problem will be reflected in prices higher than what we are all faced with presently.

However, we always book through name brand rentals and even a car dealership twice.

FYI airport, or on-site, rental companies often charge an airport access fee, similar to the airport improvement fees that are added to your tickets from certain airports. Even off airport rentals charge you to be picked up at the airport with an airport access fee and some charge you extra if you request FF miles for the rental.
