This is the first TR that for me equals the "8 bottles of Dom on SQ" report for its "You insane, wonderful, cheeky motherf'er" value.

Wow, well done! I was thinking about doing something similar but didn't come across the idea of travelling to a cheaper office to do it :-)

Great work! We'll definitely be sharing your story!

If David Phillips is known as Pudding Guy, shall we call you Car Rental Guy?

Amazing! If there was a test to see if you qualify as a true travel geek, you passed with flying colors! The photography is amazing too! Happy and safe travels. Please post more!

You had me hooked after this sentence. What an insane thing to do but a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Ahhhh... this is one of those things where every normal person would say "you're insane".

I, however, agree with my Flyertalk friends: This is fantastic! ^^

Welcome to our mad society, 37rentals!

I heard about this a few weeks ago, and glad you posted it as a TR ^ Not sure if the story I heard was yours, but this is great none the less.
