Thanks to Freda N for info. We offer options for economy or compact class cars, large SUVs or pick-up trucks, as well as premium and luxury car rentals that can seat as little as three or as many as seven passengers. Just go ahead and return the car partially full. Minimum rental length is five 5 days. This is a scam, pure and simple.

Enterprise Insurance Did you know that you probably do not need to purchase the extra insurance offered by rental car companies i. Most US residents are covered for collision damage by their own auto insurance policies unless they are renting an unusual vehicle.

Note that some policies may exclude rented SUVs, luxury cars or convertibles. Call your insurance company to confirm what type of coverage your policy provides for rental cars.

Many upper end credit cards and charge cards, such as Gold and Platinum American Express and some MasterCard and Visa cards, also include insurance benefits when you use them to rent a car. Credit card benefits differ widely, so call to get specifics before choosing whether or not to purchase the insurance. LOU basically means that if the car is damaged during your rental, the car rental company will try to keep charging you the daily rental fee until the car comes back from the repair shop.

This is ostensibly to compensate the company for lost revenue. Some personal auto insurance will cover Loss of Use for rental cars. In fact, some states require that your auto insurer must cover this.

Some credit card companies also cover Loss of Use. Other credit card companies will fight the LOU on your behalf, or pay it for you. Call your car insurance company and credit card issuers to ask about Loss of Use coverage. We understand some people have hired attorneys who successfully argued against paying for LOU unless the rental company could prove it lost the revenue. A number of people have reported that even after they repeatedly and emphatically told the rental agent that they wanted to refuse the insurance, when they returned the car, they had been charged for the insurance.

In some cases this nearly doubled the cost of the rental. It turned out that during the rental process they had been instructed to initial a space that indicated they accepted the insurance.

This has been reported at almost every agency. Another misleading insurance sales ploy that has been reported is this: Rental car companies do NOT include any basic insurance coverage in the US, unless you have some kind of specially-negotiated corporate contract with them i. This allows you to do almost all of the paperwork in advance and usually you get to avoid the check-in line, or stand in a special line.

This is a scam, pure and simple. They know this, and they know they are going have to upgrade you into a larger vehicle without additional charge. Why do they do this? Prepaid Gas Option When you pick up your rental car, most companies will offer you the option of prepaying for a full tank of gas, often at a temptingly low per-gallon rate. Our advice is to decline the prepaid tank of gas. Just go ahead and return the car partially full.

We first learned about this from MouseSavers. You can use the built-in toll transponder in the car. The way it works is that you go through the fast toll lane and they charge your credit card for the tolls [plus a big daily fee].

A guy in line in front of us warned us about it. SunPass has a summary of the fees charged by the various rental car companies. The rental car transponder service from the rental company is not a good deal. The SunPass lane does not save you more than a minute or two on the toll roads you will encounter around Orlando. Right now the rental car toll transponder is a totally unnecessary fee that you can easily avoid.

Be sure to have a dollar or two in quarters. Many of the exits and entrances to the toll roads are unattended and require you to toss coins into a collection point in order to pay the toll.
