Usually only airports can book that online. Possibly only 12 passengers can be booked online.

Your best bet is calling a local branch and ask them to bring it in.

I'm seeing $244.79.
You might have missed the PM return time, but it's actually a 3 day rental. Either way, thanks for the recommendation!
