While I'm not really advocating this practice, it can sometimes be to your benefit to make a backup reservation with another company just in case.

So far, the rental companies have not implemented cancellation fees (although this could be changing soon), so you are not on the hook for a no-show. If you arrive on-time and have no problem with your original lower priced rental, you can always cancel the other one to be courteous.

This not only protects you from a late arrival situation like above, but also from an oversold situation, which doesn't happen often, but it is possible.
