I’ve used Enterprise, Hertz, Dollar, Thrifty, and Budget.  Honestly, they’re all the same.  I book with whoever’s cheapest, usually.

I think I’ve used most of them up there.. They do all generally seem the same & I do tend to go with whoever I can get the best rate from.  

I’ve never been too picky with rental cars unless I was going to be spending a good deal of time in it. I learned that lesson the time I drove across 2 states with a one way rental in the crappiest car ever. It had only a radio, no cd player, no aux jack. nothing. It SUCKED. I didn’t even realize it until I was already packed up & on the road. That was the worst drive ever.

They’ll usually try to upgrade you “For only $xx more a day!!!” (lol) once you’re at the counter.  Sometimes I’ve gotten the upgrade for nothing if I’m like no I don’t want to pay more. Then magically they have something they can give me. Pfft.

Anyway, I went off on a tangent there! Sorry!

Pretty sure Dollar and Thrifty are affiliated with eachother so they’re basically the same.

Use hot wire to book it. You get a pretty decent discount but you don’t find out which rental company it is until after you book. I did it recently and rented a car for a weekend for only $70. You just plug in which airport it is, when you are going and it gives you your options. You can still choose which class of car etc. I also got a free gps thrown in which was nice since they usually charge 10 bucks a day for it.

I booked through Hotwire and got a vehicle for half of what the individual companies were quoting me. They got me one through Budget.
