Be careful.  Budget and Dollar Renta Car at the Reno airport  both added charges to my card AFTER I was home and I was on the phone forever getting it taken off.

Good to know, especially since it was Budget. Thanks Cobia.

I've saw a report on TV that some rental companies were charging such sky-high rates that people were renting U-Haul trucks simply because they were cheaper than cars.
  There would have be a lot of distance to offset car rental rates of $500-700/day.

Maybe itís cheaper upfront, but uHauls charge mileage of use.  Pretty sure that offsets that difference

Does anyone know tricks for getting a rental car during the rental car shortage?




Maybe try booking early and hope for the best.
