I have a special rate in Lynbrook NY with Budget $422 for March 15- April 11 for a mid-size car. I would prefer to rent with Hertz where I have the same for $586.
So I am looking to sell my rental with budget for $166 OBO. Still a great deal, 20 bucks a day! The name on the reservation can be changed. If your interested, please PM me

Best quote: Because my friends and I are under 25, the best I was able to find was ~400 USD on Hertz.

I know with a AAA discount code, the cost goes down significantly, ~170 USD. However, since we are from Canada, we do not have AAA memberships. I was wondering if Hertz checks for proof of membership? Thanks!
