10 Day Trip to PHX - Car Rental Question

I was searching for a DEAL and came up with Atlas Choice Car Rentals - they are telling me I can get a Standard Size Car (Hyundai Sonata) for $215 for the trip - WOW. Anyone one ever try this outfit? Is it a SCAM? They do require you to PREPAY - but I am not changing or canceling this trip. From their website http://www.atlaschoice.com/new/CarRental.aspx it appears they are BROKERS to the rental companies. Would appreciate any FEEDBACK before I try booking with them. Other companies are asking $400-$800 for the same time period. Thanks!!

Does the rate include all taxes and fees? When things are too good to be true, they often aren't. I don't know anything about the Atlas company. Sounds like Hotwire rates. I would check Hotwire; they are known to be legit.

Hotwire was more and yes the Atlas Choice rate said it included all taxes and fees. It does seem too good - but I LOVE to find a bargain. Hasn't anyone tried them before?

Also am interested in Atlas Choice. I have been looking for a rental car for 1-29 through 2-12-2013 and found a very good rate with them. I am reluctant to book through them unless I know something about them.

Would appreciate any information.

I am one week back from my trip to PHX. The 10 day car rental worked out OK. The company that Atlas Choice chose was FOX - never used them before and they were good. Saved $200 and they even offered me an upgrade from a Hyundai Elantra to a Mustang CONVERTIBLE for $10 a day. I will be using Atlas Choice again - even though it did seem too good to be true it paid off.

You were fortunate. Fox has been a nightmare for many in PHX

Thanks for the info, I think I will give it a try. The difference in the price is worth taking a chance.

Will let you know how it goes for us.

If it turns out to be FOX go over your vehicle VERY carefully - including the windshield. They tried to charge me for a chip in the windshield....
