Most of the time, car rentals are not part of my travel planning equation. When the husband and I travel abroad, we often rely on trains, subways, buses, and our own two feet, and when we travel domestically, it’s usually a road trip in our own car. A quick look at my travel journals reveals that of the nearly three dozen trips we’ve taken since 1997, both domestic and international, only seven have involved car rentals.
A closer inspection, however, reveals that all seven of those car-hire experiences were within the last five years, most recently on my trip to Phoenix. It was in the weeks after this trip that I realized I’ve learned enough about the process to actually offer some advice, so buckle up for a ride down rental road.
