no risk.. just they may feel the power not to rent the car to u... i hadda go to jfk to switch my car- and the manager there told me i had an invalid reservation cus its from peru. He told me to go back to where i rented it from cus hes not dealing with it... thank god he didnt cancel the reservation though... never had a problem though if i didnt have to talk to anyone! and off site locations i also never had a problem with.. but theres always a first.

In other words there is a risk? I'm assuming though that it's not common?
