[QUOTE=PrincessKusseka;1137405]Sorry, I didn’t give enough info… we will be renting the car in Kentucky and driving to Disney and then driving back to Kentucky in the rental car. I am looking for a good company with good prices (no hidden fees). Thank you![/QUOTE]
I, for one, love Hertz. I swear by them. Up until they hosed me over. But enough about them.
Since you asked, I am now giving free legal advice to those who have need of it. And that legal advice is to discuss a few things about rental cars. It’s a legal contract, so understand what you read before you sign. A few concerns:
:ph34r: Are you taking the car out of state? Make sure the rental agency is aware and is kopasetic with this. The last thing you want to be is finding yourself with a flat in a location not authorized. Just start making the ching ching ching sound, 'cause even a good lawyer is gonna cost you to wrap this up in the end. :pirate:
Have you called your insurance carrier? Assuming you aren’t made of money and blindly sign away your first born’s college money to pay for the “available insurance” offered by the rental agency, make sure you call your insurance and find out what they offer if you get into an “uh oh” while driving a rent a wreck. Sometimes you might discover you aren’t as insured as you thoughts. :pirate:
Are you knowledgeable about the driving laws pertaining to those states you are speeding through? Sometimes folks find out that being Larry Leadfoot in a state which your car is not registered and you don’t have a license in might force you to hang out in the county drunk tank until the first Monday Morning when the Magistrate is first available. :pirate:
:blink: Before any long distance cross-country trip, spend more than five minutes going over your car before you and the offspring load everything up to make it to the freeway before rush hour. Unless you’ve driven this car before, every make and model is different. Don’t let something become a serious burden because you never bothered to find out where the temp gauge is located. :pirate:
:wub: Anyway, as for rental car applications, I use Priceline almost exclusively for rental cars and hotel rooms. Using Priceline.com That being said, I first go onto Expedia.com, and find out what the going rate is for a rental car for the length of time I need it. I then attempt to name my own price and hope to save some serious cash. There are some others out there, just be advised that if things go South, it doesn’t help if there’s no on working on a weekend to answer that call for help. :pirate:
