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.

Peru Hertz with USAA CDP 79664. Airport fee $30, $146/wk $35/day. Total for your dates (with taxes): $289
If you have an Amex you can probably get this http://www.dansdeals.com/forums/index.php?topic=10597.msg131773#new
Or try  Avis with Citi AWD.

I changed the earlier post. Hertz.com on top is an option to select a country - just change it from US to Peru

A tough one. Only thing I managed to find was $77 for a Grand Marquis (all other cars have mileage charges or drop fees... go figure) on Hertz Chile with USAA CDP 77694, Amex PC 113271, RQ BEST. Pick up at 'Willow run Av flight'

(should get 15-20% at the counter with Amex http://www.dansdeals.com/forums/index.php?topic=10597.msg131773#new)
