Rugged Rental - SLC Car Rental

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just returned from the Park City area. Rented my car for the first time from Rugged Rental off site at the SLC airport. Their service was terrific. Called when I had my check luggage in hand, and they arrived at the second level within 10 minutes. Approximately 10 minutes to their off-site terminal. While I was verifying the reservation, the attendant loaded my luggage into the new 4 wheel drive Durango I reserved. When I returned the car the attendant loaded the luggage into their shuttle and I was gone with paperwork in hand in less than 5 minutes. Prices below the nationals, no additional charge for up to 5 drivers; no additional charge for 21 year old drivers; ski racks - no charge; and no surprises when I returned the car. Included mileage is 1400 per week. I should add that I picked up my car on December 23rd - quite a busy travel day, and returned it on January 3rd in the afternoon. Everybody was pleasant to deal with and they had a nice selection of 4wd vehicles; all SUV’s or trucks. Ruggedrental.com.

Flaskier, ditto to your post. We did the same Dec 15th thru 22nd, and Rugged could not have done a better job. We reserved a Jeep prior to their winter price hike and paid <$300 for the week, while everyone else was >$500 for the week.

I was there Jan 1 - Jan 7, I rented a standard class SUV from Avis and received a brand new 2007 Mercury Mountaineer (400 miles on it only) AWD, luxury package with leather etc. Came to $469US all in for the 7 days (1 week + 1 day and some hours) with insurance declined (covered by my car insurance here). Very fast drop off and pick up. I believe I got such a nice truck because I am an Avis preferred member (free through work). Was satisified with it although we only needed AWD once on the BCC road when it snowed a bunch on Thurs 1/4/2007 (sigh, a week ago, now I'm back at work). On a side note, it was pretty funny seeing some idiot in a jacked up Dodge Ram passing people down the BCC road in a storm only to end up in the ditch a few minute slater.

I just reserved a Trailblazer (or similar) two hours ago from Alamo using rate code QVW for $412 (all tax incl) w/ unlim. mileage for the week of 2/20.

Rugged is currently not listing a price for a similar vehicle (says to call for a price). But a few days ago they were showing a similar vehicle for over $500. A puny Jeep Wrangler is listed as $445.

In addition, they're only open from 8am to 6pm. Extra charges apply to after hours pickup, etc. Maybe I'll call anyhow and see if they can beat the Alamo price, although I doubt they will beat it by enough to offset the convenience of in-terminal rental from Alamo (allegedly).
