You know how hard it is to get a compact or ecnomony car?
First, the travel agent seems to guide me into a midsize. It is the “Corporate Standard”. Really? We have a standard class for rentals?
Next, the jockey working at the counter says “An economy car. Are you sure?”
After I say Yes, they then say “Well, for $5.00 a day, I can upgrade you to a fullsize, or an SUV” #FAIL. To me, an upgrage is a Posrche GT3, or a Bugatti Veryon. Maybe a Bentley. It isn’t a hunk of american steel in too big of a body size.
I really am just doing a few 10 mile trips, and back to the airport. Yes, I will fill the tank (and not pay the $8.00 a gallon “convenience” fee). Just give me the base econobox. Really, it will be OK.
- Exception. When I am in Texas, I always upgrade to the sedab with a V8. You gotta get up to speed on the freeway PRONTO.
