Thanks, but when you factor in the under age fee is not such a major sale. ;)

There are no corporates that get rid of it?

$2730? Where are you looking?

I just checked Hertz and got quoted $1332 for a full size.
Use USAA CDP.

Or use National with Contract ID 5000491 and you can get a Mid Size SUV for $1242 or a Premium Car for $1332.

Wow, I have a lot to learn :-)

Excuse my "newbyness" but if I use USAA CDP do I need to have ID from them? Or with the national Contract ID? Is there a risk with that?

Thanks a million

I've rented from hertz in PHL numerous times and I'm under 25 and they never asked me for proof of USAA. But I can't answer for national
