How old are you? If I recall you need to be 24 for a rental car company to allow you to rent a car.

Yea, its 25 for the camaro I think. and watch out on the "have grandma/mom" rent it. If you wreck it, you WILL NOT be covered.

They actually did a special on TV. It was 11:50pm on the day before the guys 25 birthday and they turned him away. He walked away, sat down in front of the rental booth and waited until midnight and walked back over and they rented him a car no problem. Its a liability... rules are rules...

I was going to rent a Camaro to drive around in while visiting Las Vegas a few months ago and I couldnt find one either. You can rent a 69 Camaro but you cant get a 2010.

AVIS is weird. . . . they have Camaros in some locations but not others, they are all over the place in Florida, I don't know why they wouldn't rent them in Vegas . . . in the past they had them in Boston, but now they do not . . . maybe it is a winter thing?

I am going to Vegas in May, called about a Camaro, they have them at the airport. You have to be over 25. $120 a day, $100 if its on special. They won't book this far in advance. They were actually pretty rude about it.

I need a car for 3 days so I am not going to pay for 3 days at $120 a day plus all the rediculas taxes they charge. Hell, I'd pay more for three days to drive a car I have at home for more than my payment is per month... plus I could end up with a V6. Best case senerio is a V8 A6... Not gonna do that. I ended up with a 2010 Jeep Wrangler. I figured that would be fun with the top off. We are taking a day and going to Mojave so the jeep could be interesting! I guess there are a lot of dirt roads out there that require 4 wheel drive.

It is Vegas, if you got enough cash you cna have anything there.
They probably hold em for the high rollers who won't even question it.

Anyone in Vegas should take something down to pawn stars n see if you can get on TV

They were on the Avis website up until this year. You could reserve them at the Airport location. I was going to, then realized you had to be 25 (in 23). After that, my father was going to rent it for me and I just give him the money. So we get there and for the special class cars, you have to use an actual credit card, not a debit. He doesn't use them and doesn't have any so there went that idea. I don't think any of the luxury rentals, such as Dream Car Rentals, have them yet.

They may still rent them but not list on the website. I'm SOL either way, so I haven't even bothered calling.

The last time I was in Charlotte (October, I think), I picked up a rental from Avis. I counted more than 20 Camaros in their parking lot, all V6's, in all colors. If they wanted $100/day, that would explain why they were all sitting.

Being realistic why is the rental on this car so much. First of all these prices are for the V6, non-RS version 2LT. Sticker price about 28k. You can rent a luxury sedan with about the same sticker price for less than half of the price.

No, that seems to be standard protocol for Camaros. I tried to rent one twice in May/June from Indy. They had them in stock but would not reserve them. I had to jsut drive to Indy and hope they'd have them when I get there. I guess they keep them as a first come/first serve basis. You dont have to be a high roller. If yiou have $120 a day, you get one.

They don't. Thats where I got my Jeep, DCR. I like them. I have rented off them many times then i switched to Rent-a-Vette. They seemes to have better kept cars but they went under so I am back to DCR.

Its really not that far off base. There is a lot of insureance they have to carry plus to mantain the fleet and pay for the locations... It all has to roll in to the rental rate. In prospective a Mustang was about the same cost. A Mustang convertible was a little more. I priced an Escalade for the 3 days... almost $800! Renting cars is not cheap! $100-$120 is pretty reasonable. I jsut coundn't justify it since i own one better than they would ever rent. Best case I get a 2SS A6.

And what are you calling a "luxury sedan" Only thing I found less than $100 a day that wasnt a crap box focus was a Mazda6 for like $90 a day. Luxury cars are much more expensive.

100 dollars a day for a V6 rental? lol.. Yeah I would say that is precisely why they are all on the lot and not on the street. RIP OFF.

Reminds me when the new PT Cruiser came out, and people were paying huge mark ups and going on waiting lists, and now they are a dime a dozen.

Obviously most of you dont rent cars too often. They are not cheap. $100 a day is not that unheard of. Go look. I just check all the major rental places before booking my Jeep Wrnagler for $90 a day. Nothing is less than say $80 a day uless you want to drive so crappy Aveo, Focus or such. Rental cars are a scam but people need them. If you want to drive something nice, it costs. Its not jsut the Camaro. Look at some prices. If you could find a G8, it would be well over $100 a day I am sure but they dont rent those b/c they arent that popular. Now dont go and get your panties in a wad. They are a SWEET cars and yours is very nice but to Joe Schmoe, its nothing special. The Camaro is/was a fad this summer so people were jumping over renting them to see the hype. I am betting you wont see Avis carry them much longer. I am betting once the vert comes out they will dump all the coupes for them. Look at the Mustang... Not many place rent coupe mustangs. In Vegas they do and they are expensive. Over $100 a day...

That is funny because in the year 2009 I rented a car for 58 days straight and then another 13 days. (both from National Rental Car) It was way under 100 dollars a day

58 days = Pontiac G6 GT
13 days= Chrysler Sebring Convertible (they were low on cars lol)


I also scheduled a rental car twice in the past week (wife was suppose to fly in to VA, but snow canceled her both weekends.

2 day rental was 91 bucks (taxes and all) for full size car from Hertz after taxes.

So yeah 100 bucks is ridiculous.


OH yeah and ironically enough that was in Las Vegas both times ( 58 days and 13 days)


You know what is a rip off.. though.... I called to get a free car for a few days (after using National Rental car for 71 days) and they told me I had earned two free days.. what a rip off.
7 days would be a 10% discount.. 3.5 days would be 5% discount.

1.75 days would be 2.5%

So essentially all that business earned me a whopping 2.5% discount.

What a joke. (some perk their club card is) lol

I rent cars 10-15 times a year or so. I typically pay $35 - $50 per day for mid or fullsize. Specal rates of $28/day is not uncommon... you just have to look for deals and try different discount codes (like costco, usaa, etc).
I've rented mustangs for $35/day, so I don't understand $100/day for a V6 Camaro.

Now specialty cars are much more expensive like minivans and SUVs, sometimes approaching the $100 mark. I would expect to also pay that for a Camaro SS or a Corvette.
