I needed a rental for the trip to the airport yesterday. Cheaper and more convenient than the KeysShuttle. I have had an Enterprise account for years because I allegedly get better pricing and faster service. And they’ll drop me off at my house when I return a car.
Enterprise: “We don’t have many cars for one-way. You’ll have to call back tomorrow when Carlos is here so we can process the order. We have a special rate of $129.95 which is less than the online charge.”
Budget: Your rental car is reserved! Your confirmation number is xxxxxxxxUSx
Your credit card has been charged $51.69 USD
Thanks for renting at budget.com, and have a pleasant trip.
Enterprise rate was $34.99 online ($44.57 with all the taxes and fees) but the enterprise.com site doesn’t offer one-way rentals from Marathon. Budget was all online. Budget was a little more expensive. Rented from Budget. Their cheap cars come with cruise, too.
Got this in my email this morning from Enterprise.
At one time I flew a lot at the client’s expense; so I used the car rental company that treated me best. Budget always served me well, and their rates were comparable.
I haven’t rented a car is years because I stopped flying when they started the full body pat downs, and I discovered that I am a hopeless romantic and fall in love too easily.
Should be OK to fly now, George. They give you a FREE, full body diagnostic XRay with every prostate exam.
As long as I don’t have to pee in that little bottle. My aim is horrible.
Forgive the rant, but I clicked over to Whitney Houston’s funderal and though I was watching Idol.
I liked her voice; but I hope they get this poor woman either buried or her ashes spread before Kevin Costner succumbs to priapism. I mean, 20 years is a long time to keep one on.
