DriveAway represent the big rental car companies. They thrive on the commission they receive from the bookings to the major companies.
We booked a Hertz car and pre-paid through Travel centre in Melbourne.
DriveAway provided certain documentation (in English) for us to agree to and take with us to pick up the car. It was inaccurate as Hertz in Germany would not accept the paperwork provided (in English) and although they saw the car was pre-paid ($2200AUD) they took out $1500 Euro out of my major credit card and would not give us any car unless a contract that favoured them and was contrary to the DriveAway contract was signed.
I believe these people are ___________ and_____. I would not believe a word that they said. And NEVER BOOK WITH THEM EVER!!

This company puts theirs ad on the inside of train windows that block the view. Disgraceful.

I have just returned from 22 days in the USA. I hired a car to carry me and two friends (and luggage), picking the car up in San Francisco and dropping it off in Denver. There was a one-way recovery fee of $500, which I expected, but when the agent in San Francisco saw our huge pile of luggage, he offered an upgrade to a larger car, while dropping the one-way fee to $300. We took it.
The car was brand new - leather seats, electric adjust, rear view camera via the rear-view mirror, emergency telephone contact device built-in, twin air-conditioners, two sunroofs, DVD player and roof-mounted screen. We could not have been happier with the deal. The car was supplied by Alamo, but at a considerable (like 1/2 price) discount than going directly through Alamo. We ended up driving 4,500 miles through ten states from Seattle Washington down to Santa Fe in New Mexico. I could not be happier. Oh, and don't worry about getting an expensive "International Driving Licence" from the NRMA - it's not worth the paper it's printed on. In the US at least, all they are interested in is your Australian driving licence - nothing else.
This is the first time I have used DriveAway Holidays, but I will definitely use them if I travel overseas again. I am completely happy with their service.

We booked a car for 4 weeks in October , picking up from San Francisco and drop off in LA., using Dollar Car Rentals. We paid much less than if we'd booked in the U.S. and had no problems whatsoever. Quick and easy pick up and return and the car was a free upgrade and almost new. We drove over 8000 kms and really enjoyed the whole experience. No extra charges on drop off, but we did find the ' drop off empty " approach rather stressful. They also offer a ' drop off full " option which we would have preferred, but didn't find out about in time.

This was our second experience of renting a Peugeot through Drive Away. We chose a 307 SW for a 36 day trip around France and Northern Italy. We picked up the car in Paris and dropped it off in Marseille. The service was excellent and even included loading our first destination into the GPS. On drop-off we were driven to the airport terminal with the luggage still in our car which was very convenient. The car was perfect for a couple with lots of luggage and was comfortable for day trips with 5 adults.
