When I was 25 my friend and I traveled to Los Angeles for vacation. We needed to find affordable transportation so after looking at all the big box car rental places we settled on Rent-A-Wreck.
The prices were amazing. I paid $25 a day to rent a car in California. A steal compaired to everything else I found.
I expected that getting a car from a place like Rent-A-Wreck it would be in a scary neighborhood, but this was not the case. It was nicely located in a pleasant neighboorhood on a main street. The service, well you get what you pay for. I am not saying it was a bad experience, just not a good one. they were very direct and too the point and not as personable as I would have liked.
The car was in driveable condition, but not aestetically pleasing. It is rent a wreck so this is to be expected. The interior was rather gross. It looked like someone started to clean it then forgot what they were doing.
All in all the car functioned as it should, the price was affordable, the auto selection was not very big, but we were able to get around LA for a song. This is great for the student on vacation, or the budget minded family who doesn't mind driving in an older car.
