they should not ask u for ID of residents and apparently its legit if the system lets it go thru. i rented 3 times like that and never had an issue.

I have hertz gold so I go straight to the car anyhow I think. No stopping by the counter/agent afaik

The jeep seems so annoying... Removing the hard top doesn't look too hard, but where do I store it?!

the last option for the all the cars is a convertable mustang. click on "select for quote" then itll say subtotal is $0 then click submit and it gives u the total of $261.

and i see u said u have hertz gold but for all those that dont have an account u might encounter a problem bec it automatically sets the billing country to the country uve selected so just make an account - its free
enjoy!
