Pickup location: LAX
Drop Off location: PSP
Pickup date & time: Oct 8
Drop Off Date & Time Oct 9/15 Depends on the price
Preferred Car Size: Suburban or Minivan depends on price
Age (if under 25): 25+

Also is there any car rental in LAX that would deliver the car to the terminal (like a VIP service) instead of having to go with a shuttle?

Thanks. It's for my little brother and he doesn't have the time/knowlege to jump through the hoops of registering for emerald, buying a cert, etc... Anyone know what the cheapest cash price is?

He's 18 but one of his parents can rent and put him as an additional driver if that'll be cheaper as long as the parent doesn't need to be present at return. TIA.
