My advice would be to see if your company has any agreement with a rental company.  I know that when I went to a friend’s wedding in Houston, I was only 24 at the time and was able to book through my company’s travel agency and have the contract state that no additional fee required for under 25.

Enterpise is definitly the way to go they only limit you to car types rather than charging you a fee. They aren’t always at airports however so you might have to meet them in town somewhere.

They will rent to you; you are a girl (I assume).  The age limit is different for men and women, due to the much higher accident statistics for men under 25.  I remember going for interview trips my senior year in college, and how upset the guys were that I could rent a car (at 21) and they couldn’t!  The catch is that you probably won’t be able to list your FI as a second driver, so any insurance you get from the car rental company won’t apply if he is driving.

Enterprise does rent to both male and females who are under 25.  Make sure you check with the location you will be renting from to see if you need to bring any additional information (i.e – insurance cards).   They may charge a daily fee.  Since you will be married at the time, you won’t have to pay any additional driver fees, which is a plus!  I used to work for them and the daily fee was $10/day.  My FI still works for Enterprise in San Jose, so if you’re renting around that area, I can talk to him and see what the exact rules are!  Feel free to PM me if you want me to check on anything for you!

I think some car rental places have exceptions for those who are married…I had this convo with a girl i used to work with and her and her husband were under 25 at the time they got married and they too rented a car for their honeymoon and she said that they were able to get an exception because they were married…they may have changed the rules since then, but I know she told me this!!! 🙂
