this summer I had reserved a economy in Phoenix Hertz  (local) for 125 a week with usaa and a 25$ pc I ended up with a Mitsubishi convertible kept it for 8 days and got 50$ off complained (legitimately)  when I returned it so I ended up paying 75$ for 8 days and they waved the extra day fee

FLL
National
Using my National Executive Elite, I rsvp'd for a midsize and chose a GMC Terrain from the Aisle. It was fully loaded with everything aside from GPS.

For a last minute rsvp I got it for about $180 Thursday 6pm-Monday 8pm.

Nice! Which agent did you give the $20 to? The one at the counter, or the one giving you the car?

Your right. Don't know how to delete some details. If a mod can do it I would appreciate it.

Maybe that's why I got such lousy service at FLL, even as a Hertz PC -- didn't think to flip the guy a $20!  I suppose that could work in a lot of situations...

since when is there 2 people

I mean, I don't rent cars that often, and when I do it's at an airport, but that last time I was in FLL, there was an agent that took my CC info etc, and then directed me to the parking lot where another agent showed me to my car...

Its prob to late - once your contract is printed, the guy showing your car - flipping a $20 wont do anything

You have to get the agent inside to walk outside with you to show you what they have. Flip it there!
