Budget now offering Camaro rentals

Sorry if this is old news...I've been on vacation with no computer since the 5th...but we rented a sedan from Budget at LAX overnight, and when I pulled into the lot, I got quite the shock...probably 25+ Camaros availabe for rent, most of them looked like they just came off the truck...both V6 and SS's. I thought AVIS was the only one renting, but I guess not. Most I've ever seen in one spot.

I still can't believe the dove tail from Next Level Performance didn't make front page when things like this do. Their dove tail being shipped out as we speak before anyone else's is breakthrough news!

Oh, that's right! My bad completely.

I'll elaborate on this thread appropriately then. I found this funny by zooming in on the stats they were showing for the rental cars. I thought I was seeing things, but MPG on the SS shows 19-28.
That's 1 mpg more in the city for the SS over the V6 and 1 mpg less on the highway for the SS compared to the V6.
That's very funny advertisment!!!
I need to find a way to buy a Budget SS cause dude, I could save a good 3 mpg in the city and 7 on the highway compared to the one I have ordered!

That is awsum and I hope they are better than Avis about their rental fees and attitude. I haven't seen any SS at Avis here either.

Please keep the thread on topic and avoid the "why don't I have my car yet, but car rental agencies have tons" posts. I understand the frustration from waiting for your Camaros, but this is not the thread in which to complain. Thanks!

Checked all the Budgets in Vegas, none list them available online. I may have to call tomorrow to check if they have them in town and if so what the rates are.

Wow, as with the MPG listed on the Budget advertisement, I hope I'm not seeing things again. I've searched up and down the few posts here and can't find anyone complaining that they don't have their car yet. I myself am aware that the rental car agencies had early bids of sizeable alotments. More power to them and it actually is a great way to test drive the car before buying one, well, for a daily fee at least.

Anyway, I wonder what the prices are per day and per week that Budget is charging for these. If anyone finds out, please post.

Stopped by the local Avis office on Saturday to ask about a Camaro rental. They told me they had been caught be surprise earlier in the week when they received notification to return their Camaros because they were only on a 3 month lease. I live 1 hour north of Denver and the local office was returning their Camaro to Denver Airport.

I wonder if the Avis Camaros have now been shifted to Budget, since they are one company.

sry Tran, didn't read all the posts before complaining, IMO still a waste since most of those rentals will be abused.

I rented one from Avis two weeks ago from the Ft Lauderdale/Hollywood airport. The service agent even helped me out with the price and everything was good. I had a Yellow SS/RS with 2200 miles on her. It was a great experience for my wife and I. She likes it soo much that she is pushing for me to order one. I hope that GM fills all the orders quickly so that everyone can have to same experience I had.............

Dont do it. I got a corvette for $100 (all prices are negotiable) +$30 insurance at the Hertz here in Jacksonville. I think you would have more fun in that then a Camaro. I still love the Camaro, but a vette is a better toy!

2 day rental over last weekend $306 (includes tax)

I think I might grab a rental next weekend, only thing I can find "near" me is an auto 1LT (looking to buy 6M SS2) but the overall feel of the car should be similar I'd expect. Next weekend should be fun .

I just rented the SS Camaro with IOM over the weekend for my 27th birthday and I was told majority of the AVIS camaros were getting taken over the budget lot to rent instead.

As a side note, I was told that budget was giving out one day free coupons to rent any car on their lot..but I cant say 100% that the camaros are on the list of qualified vehicles but it doesnt hurt to try to ask.

I gotta say that it was hard trying to return the camaro I rented back to the rental place @ LAX in the morning. I thought it was funny how the guys at the rental were surprised the model I was driving was even available because they rarely had seen any IOM SS models with sunroof at their lot.

Yeah I rented a 2SS on August 20 from there when I went to Blizzcon. I had gone on a business trip to El Segundo in June and they had rentals as early as then.

How much are the 2SS's going for a day rental?

See that's the problem..especially at the LAX office.. The rates are constantly going up daily due to the high usage of the vehicles as I was told by the rep at the rental.

I had placed a reserve a week in advance for a 3 day rental from Friday-Sun 6am to 6am and with my airline corp discount and multiple $25 vouchers the woman gave me, I paid a total of $500. But the daily rate as of now is $167.19 but that can change with a matter of 24 hrs..
