I am looking to rent a car for a rabbi that really does a lot of chesed. As of now he rents a car from Enterprise and pays $1000 a month. I am sure he can do better. If anyone can help it would be a real Mitavah!! He lives in NYC, but i'm sure he can pick up a car anywhere in the area.

TIA

Avis Florida renter's beware,
I made reservations at Avis in Fort Lauderdale airport
Using the state of Florida code (Awd: A113400 Rate code:FS)
Was asked for id and proof that I'm renting for business use was told that I must have and show a Florida State I'D
Since i didn't have they didn't honor my reservation

What's the best way to rent a car using points? Or are there any CCs that offer deals for car rentals?
