About Us

IdeaMerge is all about transparency, best price and service.

Why Choose IdeaMerge?

Best Price, No Hidden Costs — Guaranteed
We truly offer the best total prices — far lower than even our suppliers' prices — and we do so transparently. Our foreign exchange rates are the best in the business. We do not charge a booking fee. And WE DO NOT CHARGE A CREDIT CARD TRANSACTION FEE. Most of our competitors charge a credit card transaction fee of about 2%! They bury mention of that fee deep in their Terms and Conditions; search those terms for the word "surcharge" or the phrase "credit card" to see their surcharge acknowledged. If you happen to find what seems to be a better deal, please send us a copy of the quote. We happily endeavor to beat any comparable price, but to do so we naturally require a copy of the quote.
Customized Specials
The specials offered by our RV rental suppliers and by our European car lease supplier can be quite confusing. So, our software does the thinking for you (and us) in this important respect. You submit the distance you expect to drive — if the supplier indeed charges for driving distance — and you choose the extras you would like; our software then determines the optimal special or set of specials for you, inasmuch as any special does indeed apply.
Leverage
We book thousands of motorhome rentals and European car leases every year. In choosing IdeaMerge you gain the leverage that only such a successful, fair and expert broker can offer. Thus we not only offer the best pricing; we can also solve problems on your behalf vis-à-vis the supplier. With IdeaMerge you are not on your own.
Personal Service
We really listen. We respond quickly, thoughtfully, fully and expertly. We aim to exceed your expectations.
7 Days a Week
Our motorhome rental customer service team operates 7 days a week.
Where and Who We Are
It's nearly impossible to learn where some of our competitors are actually located, much less who they are. IdeaMerge is based in Portland, Oregon, USA. We welcome international clients. And we personally introduce ourselves on our About Us page.
Customer Reviews Forum
Don't just take our word for it. Please peruse (and eventually add to) our multitude of RV rental customer reviews and European car leasing customer reviews. Our customers post their reviews directly to our website. With IdeaMerge you get the real story. That's how much confidence we have in what we represent and how we represent it.
We've Been Doing This a Long Time
Since 1996 IdeaMerge has helped savvy, independent people worldwide realize their motor travel dreams. Expertly and with a personal touch, we represent motorhome rental, car lease and car rental options most booking agencies do not command.
Social Media Presence
Free Ammendments
We offer free ammendments on most RV rentals and auto leases.
Security
We are dedicated to protecting your personal information and keeping it confidential. We do not sell, rent or otherwise disclose your personal information to any unauthorized third party without your consent. We use a 256-bit digital SSL connection (Secure Socket Layer) to secure all online orders. That encryption technology ensures that your information cannot be viewed or intercepted by third parties during the order transfer process. Moreover, we encrypt your payment data when we receive it — and we totally delete it after your pick-up date.
Savings and Peace of Mind

It all adds up to savings and peace of mind.
