My wife and I are moving from TX to MA and we are planning to rent a large SUV (lots of things we wouldn’t like the movers to carry – and break) and get to MA in 4 days, with stops in Little Rock, Knoxville, and DC area.
Some questions we have:
1 – We haven’t had any luck in booking a large SUV (Expedition or Suburban) from Avis or Hertz – smaller car rental companies offer only Trailblazers and Explorers :(. Any suggestions? I’ve been checking in DFW, IAH and SAT as well, to no avail. People from Avis have suggested me to call them every day to see if a Suburban is there by pure coincidence. This would ruin our planning, since we are moving, not just traveling.
2 – Any tips for this driving? We never drove more than 150 miles on a trip before. So yes, we’re newbies to long driving, but we're estimating that 8 hours/day will be fine.
