Dollar Rent a Car was founded in Los Angeles in 1965 and now operates out of over 400 locations in 26 countries, specialising in extremely low-cost car rental. Based primarily in the United States, Dollar also has many locations in Australia, Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America. Dollar prides itself on excellent customer service and with over 188,000 vehicles available; it is well equipped to meet your rental requirements.


Acquired by Chrysler in 1990, all cars available for rent are, unsurprisingly, manufactured by Daimler Chrysler. For the cheapest deals, go for the economy or compact models, ideal for nipping around town. For longer journeys, or if you just want a bit more luxury, the premium or convertible models are perfect. If you're travelling with your family, the SUVs and minivans are the best choice.

Booking online is the best way to ensure the most cost-effective deals, as internet-only special offers are common. Additionally, if you pay by American Express, you are eligible for a 10 per cent discount.

Comprehensive insurance options are on offer for those tricky, unforeseen moments, and Dollar also provides an excellent 24-hour vehicle recovery and repair service.
