I've had one in NY and found it to be small.

There are no guarantees but here are a few tips,
You can always mention when you book that you want a a regal (in the comments field)
Ask again at the airport if you did not receive one.
Call Customer Service and ask them if there are any around (if you have locations nearby) to swap it at out.

Good luck

Don't forget you must book a premium

You can then go and swap into it, most locations won't have a problem.

The OP says they're in Westchester County. Unless you live near HPN, the other NY-area airports are too far away to go there just for a car swap.

None of the Regals you'll find in the Hertz fleet will be in GS trim, OP.

I saw a ton of Buick Regal's at MIA and FLL airport last year, when I was changing cars... Just seeing it again makes me smile, it's the same as our Opel Insignia here in Europe.

Welcome to Flyertalk

OP is Original Poster, or it could mean OnePass, depending on how it's used.

Up in the help menu in the blue bar at the top is a link to a glossary where many of the terms people use around here are explained.
