Hey,
 heading out to LA with a buddy next week  for a week. We are both over 21 but under 25 and looking for the best car rental deals. Been going back and forth between Chabad deals and AAA deals but not sure what the best approach is.
  Any help or feedback would be really appreciated.
   Any ideas?
    ~Jon

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
