They would have to make the reservation
And add me as additional driver?
Wouldn't I need to be at the location?

They would have to make the reservation. Then a picture of your license should be able to be used to add you in

Does anyone know if the National car selection is better at EWR or LGA?

Any dp's and/or suggestions appreciated.
I have a 5 rentals in my Enterprise account. I recently realized that I would have a lot better value from them at National.
I called them, and was told that they can only transfer over rentals from the last 6 months, which would be only 3 instead of 5. The 2 that aren't included are from March.
Any way around this?

I've searched the chat and found bits and pieces but haven't seen any consensus.

When paying with Chase UR, do you still get executive elite benefits? Does it depend on which location? I'll be at FLL.

(as a follow-up, how is the selection at FLL?)

TIA

Usually pretty decent. When I was there in October, they didn't have any cars out at all. They asked each person what they needed and brought that out. I got a Nissan Armada, but it was pretty high mileage, especially for National.

I don't know what it is like now, in season. Let us know.

Will do. Although my decision to use national depends on the likelihood of sing my EE if i pay with UR. Any DPs on that?

IINM there's a thread on FlyerTalk where people claim that you get the benefits of EE when paying with UR. Make sure your EC account # is on your res (I confirmed it via twitter), pick car up from the aisle and go.
I did it once (~2 years ago at JFK) and got asked by the manager to see my res, and then said that on a UR res you don't get EE benefits.. and then ended up giving me the car I wanted from the aisle anyways  ::) so ymmv.

It seems to me that national's rates are usually considerably higher than the cheapest available rate. I like using National because i am EE but I won't pay more than $20 or $30 extra a day. (Last rental I made 2 reservations one at National and one at Budget figuring if I see something nice at National I'll take that otherwise Budget). How are people getting decent rates at National?

Case in point I have an upcoming rental in FLL for 2 days and I'm paying $86 for a midsize SUV with thrifty. With national it's $237 for a midsize.
