I've done a few one ways with Hertz where no additional drop fee over and above the weekly rate was charged. This is not uncommon at all for Hertz. I'm not at all surprised that LAX-SFO has no...

I had a DC camera ticket a couple years ago too (speeding, not red light). I couldn't figure out how to fight it with the rental car situation of them having already paid it. It was during the time...

I have little reason to choose Hertz anymore except price it seems, after yesterday. It was kinda surreal when we dropped the car off, no offer of another car, just that they'll void the...

National seems to get more praise than anyone else recently, and in some ways I wish I had more chance to try them, but in other ways I like that I'm not in airports. ;) My rentals are almost all...

Do you have a secret to getting a car at Enterprise without the slimy sales tactics? I haven't figured it out. My last try with them a couple years ago I had signed up for their frequent renter...

Being asked about FPO isn't a huge issue, takes a second to say no thanks, and it was never wrongly appended to my contract. It's just interesting to see someone actually never get asked about it. ...

To be clear, I've never had it actually added to my agreement either. But I am nearly always ASKED by the staff when I pick up a car, despite it being declined in my profile. Most often this is the...

You can and should do this but over the years it hasn't stopped counter or gate agents from asking. They reliably never ask me about insurance but they nearly always ask me about fuel even though...

My first ever Gold rental was a "Reserve This Exact Model" Mazda 6 from SFO. (I did get that exact model too, complete with free and unexpected Sirius radio.) Now, granted, this was 10 years ago,...

Even this can vary, though. In PA there's a statewide $2/day tax regardless of rate or location, so you pay it even if the rate is $0 from the point redemption. Thus, a local rental here even on...

Hm, well, I could have been wrong actually. Come to think of it, I didn't actually try to pair my phone, so it may have worked after all if I had looked. It did not have the video screen based...
