Nu, so what are the answers to those questions?  We might need them.
i myself dont know but definitely try avis like charles mentioned. Then again this situation with enterprise has only happened to me @ jfk. its likely that its different elsewhere.
just make sure to say that your going on business if you use a corporate. dont offer any other info about what your gonna do with the car etc. your just digging a hole for yourself and can get denied fo the rental

What you must know is, the prices are like liquid. Whatever the agent decides, that is the price. The bigger the position he/she has e.g. manager, the lower it can be. Since managers of branches review contracts, they often ask the newer agents why they gave such cheap prices.
I understand that the Manager and Assistant Managers make a percentage of all contracts.
When I was in LAX, I booked a compact car for 40 a day. I then asked the guy, "how much is that Cadillac Escallade?" He said "175 a day", then I asked him for 50 a day. He then went into the office and asked the manager, who told him he can do it for 70. The bottom line is, if you don't ask, you wont get.

Is it legal for anyone to use the Chabad corp account? Is it really for employees? or is it open for everyone

If you have rental insurance from your credit card you should be just fine.

Just get a credit card that gives primary rental car insurance and you won't have any headaches.

well, if he doesnt want headaches, he should get a cc that covers, but should buy liability from the rental agency. i dont know of any card that covers liability

This is from the T & C of the Starwood Amex card;

Car Rental Loss and Damage Insurance
Relax and enjoy the ride when you use your eligible Card to reserve and pay for an auto rental! The Car Rental Loss and Damage Insurance Plan provides coverage for theft of or damage to most rental vehicles. Simply decline the collision damage waiver (CDW) or similar option offered by the Commercial Car Rental Company. This coverage is excess to your other sources of insurance. Coverage applies for the first 30 days of an auto rental if rented from a Car Rental Company. Just call 1-800-338-1670 for more information and eligibility requirements.

AMEX cards offer secondary insurance with the card.

AMEX however does have a great offer for $19.95 per rental that makes the AMEX CDW primary.

(You have to ask for the $19.95/$75k damage plan specifically as the standard plan is $24.95/$100K damage) 

If you are renting for 2+ days this is always a bargain assuming you don't have a diners club card that includes free primary rental car insurance.

Secondary means that if your own personal car insurance will cover the damages without a deductible then the credit card won't pay for it.

Primary means that your personal insurance will have nothing to do with any damage to your rental car.
