need a car in miami (airport) from January 18-24. I prefer National since I am part of the executive club and get to pick any car from that selection. Best I could find is $311.35. Any advice?

Looking for a car in London (doesn't need to be from airport) from 11/15-11/24.  Must be automatic.  Am Hertz #1 gold and National Emerald Club Exec if that helps.

Thanx in advance.

Avis with Citi code should be better. Let us know if it works
Also - 1 daya vouchers are trading on the forums for less, and you'll be doing someone a favor.

I am afraid of using a non-public corporate because of insurance problems that may arise.
