Plus, they begin the redemption with a higher base rate that makes the entire rental not worth spending points. Of course, now I cannot squeeze a "free" week out of the remaining points. Oh well.....on my list of things to cry about, this doesn't even register.
I haven't had any fees added to award rentals. If I do a 1 day rental using points, the price I pay for the rental is zero. Book using rates that include CDW or LDW and can get the rental wll coverage free of charge

If the base rate is higher, does it matter if that will be reduced to zero by use of the points?
