My friend knew a guy who basically had standing weekend rentals with Hertz (or someone else with neighborhood locations). Since they don't charge you if you don't pick up the car, he just rented a car for every weekend far enough in advance that it stayed cheap. If he needed a car, he had a reservation...otherwise he just let it go.

I think they might get a little mad about this now, but I've thought about it. There are two hertz neighborhood locations nearby...last weekend I got a car to go to a bike race and ended up paying something like $16 for the whole weekend after I switched my promo code from something that gave me a $25-30 weekend with 2-level upgrade to something that was $16 (basically all taxes and fees) with no upgrades. Didn't matter since they gave me a Rav4 anyways (which was perfect for hauling the bike, and then picking up a bunch of crap in the suburbs on the way back).

Thoughts?

well the car would be in NJ, and I can rent a car in NJ for $30 a day. I'd bump it up a bit, just to be fair.

This Merc concept form Tokyo looks pretty incredible.

Looks like an Audi

The headlights are the only part that looks Audi to me.

Sorry for being unclear. I meant $180 / day + gas upon return, or I can charge you $5.50 a gallon if you make me fill it up myself.

On the other hand, would you be interested in pre-paying for a full tank at the killer rate of $4.50 a gallon?

I think this has been brought up here before but I couldn't find it with a quick search. Has anyone had any experience with Entrrprise's "exotic" fleet or similar company. Looking to rent something that's not a shitbox for a trip to sf/napa in the spring. They've got a decent selection of Porsche, audi and BMW which would really make the trip nicer.

With Enterprise (maybe true with others- I mostly only used Enterprise and Hertz when I was travelling a lot)... there was seldom the car you wanted when you got there.... so if you were hoping for a 5 series you got a 5.0 Mustang etc....

Exception was Palm Springs.... they had some very nice metal on the lot including a Lotus and a few other fun runners.
