im happy ur happy! any time, which car did u get?

Toyota Corolla.  I might also add that this is way cheaper than what I was able to find on my own.  I think the best I could do was $356 AI using AAA.

Age: Over 25
Agency: Not picky about any agency, although I do have 500 Hertz points and I've got Gold status there.
Size: 3 People 3 Large Suitcases (don't mind shoving one of them in the backseat with the 3rd passenger) 

Thanks in advance

Same here.
Dates: Jan 25- Jan 30
Pickup/Dropoff: FLL airport
Age: 25
Agency: No preference.

also have a question. I search for these dates a little and on orbitz got a qoute for a week. If I take that and return early does that affect the agreement or price. Will only be in Florida for 5 days
