FEATURE What to know when picking a wintertime rental car to keep you and your passengers safe.
Better World Club is an earth-conscious roadside assistance service. It’s a relatively affordable program, but its benefits don’t stand out compared to those offered by other services.
Delta Auto Protect provides very affordable quotes, but the coverage options are very limited, and the sales approach is aggressive.
Protect My Car has just three warranty plans, and with average mileages and age restrictions, the coverage options are pretty limited.
ACE Rent a Car is one of the smallest companies we reviewed. It only has 59 locations, so it’s much less accessible than Enterprise or Hertz.
Alamo’s relatively few locations and average pricing put it in the middle tier of the car rental companies we reviewed.
Payless is one of the smaller rental companies we reviewed. It only operates 120 locations across the country, mostly at airports, which is far fewer than other rental companies like Hertz and Avis.
We compared prices for daily and weekly rentals for several different types of vehicles, and National consistently had the highest rates, sometimes nearly double that of lower cost options like Thrifty and Enterprise.
Budget is one of the larger car rental companies we reviewed. It’s owned by the same company as Avis and Payless.
