Renting a Car for Your Trip
The best thing to do regarding rental cars is to go to the websites of the major international car rental agencies (Budget, Dollar, Thrifty, Avis, National, Hertz, Alamo, etc.) or try CarRentals.com and compare. Rates are very erratic and change regularly. Contrary to popular belief, with the exception of small local agencies which you will want to avoid, no one agency is consistently cheaper than another. It all depends on when you will be traveling, your departure point and destination, how long you will be gone, the type of vehicle you would like, the dates you will be traveling, how much they want your business at the moment, etc.
