Definitely not the right board, but a good topic anyway

Once, my parents came to meet me for dinner at ATL, prior to my driving to Columbus, GA. Before dinner, I stopped by Avis to make sure they wouldn't cancel my reservation, since I had scheduled the pickup time for around the time when my flight originally landed (not taking the dinner time into account), and they said that they hold onto reservations for 24 hours for Preferred members.

Of course, in times of heavy demand -- such as when there's bad weather and a lot of people are making last-minute bookings -- I'm guessing they might cancel earlier...
