My name is Maja and I am planning to visit USA this summer - to travel from Boston to Chicago and back with few stops in smaller towns. I was thinking of renting a car so this week I tried to find informations about that (never rented a car) and found out that is much cheaper to book a car via rent-a-car booker (like carhire3000.com) than go directly to a rent-a-car company (in my case Thrifty). The price diffrence is really big (cca 400 dolars) which doesnt have sense for me. The price (cca 230 dolars) from carhire3000.com includes:
* Unlimited Kilometres
* Insurance ( - Collision Damage Waiver - Theft Protection - 3rd Party Liability - Supplementary Liability Insurance - Uninsured Motorist Protection )
* Local Taxes
* Airport Surcharge
* Premium location fee
* Homeland Security Fee
I will have to pay a initial thank of fuel when I collect the car but as far I can see this cant be so much.
Am I missing something? I looked on Internet to find an answer but I didnt find anything. Is this price (230 dolars) for renting a car for a week ok? What do you think?
By the way (optional for answering :)) in which towns should I stop and what is worth seeing in bretween Boston-Chicago and on the way back (I will visit New York afterwards)?
Thank you very much for your replays :)
