A valuable use of one two free: one-way rental

This week, Greg and I are both in Asia – with Greg on vacation in Japan and me on a trip to China. When I travel domestically, I usually fly out of Albany International Airport (ALB) on Southwest, but internationally the options out of New York City make it worth the ~3 hour drive to get a more direct routing that doesn’t rely on a domestic connection. However, it isn’t always convenient for us to…

Fort Lauderdale Rental Cars (and a Silvercar review)

Fort Lauderdale Rental Car Sivercar

Intro: Over the Christmas holidays I had my first opportunity to try out Silvercar – a high end rental car company – at the Fort Lauderdale airport. My intention was to write a simple review, but I found it impossible to detangle my impression of Silvercar from the overall Fort Lauderdale Airport (FLL) rental car situation.  In other words, I can say how Silvercar compares to other rental options at FLL, but I think it…

National is now enforcing 1 Discover cert per rental

National Discover Cert

My favorite use of Discover Cashback is now severely limited.  Discover Cashback can be redeemed for cash or for discounted gift cards.  With gift cards, in most cases the savings are small, or the restrictions are huge, but I’ve always managed to get good value from the National car rental certificates: Discover lets cardholders redeem $20 of Discover Cashback for rental certificates worth $40 off your rental with Alamo, Enterprise, or National.  Alamo and Enterprise…

Discover’s National Car Rental certificates

In August I published “Discover rental car discounts and upgrades”.  In that post I described my approach to car rentals: maintain Executive status with National Car Rental (which allows me to reserve a mid-sized car, but pickup a much bigger or nicer car), and save a lot of money on rentals using Discover Cash Back.  Unfortunately, I’ve recently hit a few snags with this plan… When you accumulate cash back with your Discover card, you…
