Car Rentals

Over the past few days, my wife and I have rented three different cars between us, giving significant amounts of dough to both Hertz and Enterprise. Renting from Hertz was more difficult for me only because I rented on a Sunday night, so I had to drive out to the airport to get my car. But renting from the local Enterprise felt like I was walking into the world’s most bare-bones office.

Fortunately, all the rentals went off without a hitch. I’ve actually never run into any major issues with rental cars, but I’d love to hear some car rental horror stories from Pingers.

I had almost forgotten this one... on our honeymoon our rental car started to act funny. We called the rental car company and they had us bring it in to the nearest office. When we got there (it was in the middle of nowhere), we had to wait 2 hours for a new car to arrive. This was in a dirty trailer with no a/c. When the new car did get there, it had an empty tank and they wanted to charge us to fill it. I don't remember much more about it, but there were some angry words from my new husband at the rental agents...



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
