hertz USAA brazil with pc#165406 comes out to $306 after taxes (without insurance ) for the Eclipse spider.
however i know some places in Hawaii dont carry that model so you might get a ford mustang!!!

I tried doing a search but I couldn't find that deal...can you send me a link or guide me through it.
Apologies but I am a real amateur at this

did you actually try to book with this ZAR currency???
i just searched it and when it comes to payment online (you must pre-pay, if not the rates go into dollars and the price goes way up) you can't switch the country code for the billing address. put in my CC info and booked it was denied

Bunch of DDFrs pulled it off with no issues
As ur gold u shouldn't have to speak to a person
As to accident there is nothin illegitmate here its just a fare intended for SA's.
No reason this couldn't have been booked for you by your Brazillian girl friend

Yes it is. And very interesting how it gives that rate from hertz USA and no need to switch countries .
