Hertz brasil with USAA starts at $130 for a compact and full size is $150 after taxes and fees

Thank you for your quick reply, much appreciated!

1. Do I need to have any actual accounts like banking or insurance with USAA or is it enough to just register to their site?

2. We are two drivers between 21-25, is there a fee for additional? Does he need to be USAA also?

3. Any other options out there?

Use CDP # 77694, they only let free 2nd driver if its a family member otherwise there's a fee of about $10 per day, just say you and the other driver are both part of the corporate (unless you get lucky they will give you free)

im not sure the age that dollar rent a car will rent if u use chabad corp. but with chabad corp. - #CL1111 - by dollar u can get for $102. double check the age requirement

and if u go with hertz, i'd recommend u and the other driver sign up for USAA - its free and then have ur USAA number with u just in case they ask for it. and when it comes to the second driver i would add him on the contract just bec i dont think ur covered under USAA's insurance if ur not in the military, so u can tell the agent at counter that ur friend is USAA but for problem sake please add him for free on contract.
ive done it multiple times

i think in order to be able to pick any car u have to reserve a midsize (even though logically a full size should for sure get the right i dont think it does)

Need to rent a car from LGA December 22 evening, and returning Dec 27 morning.  After fees etc. all the sites are giving me high prices, I do realize it's a holiday weekend, but any ideas!  Thanks
Also, if I use my AMEX card to rent, what insurance do I decline and which do I still need.
Thanks!

I need a rental 12/5-12/7 in MSP
Even using Chabad Avis, I get $104 for the 2 days.
How can I get a better deal?
Not every company is open at 12:30 am when I need to obtain the rental!
