Rental car ass-raping

    Dumbass me, I didn't look for a rental car until now, so it's my fault. I'm surprised so many places are out of everything, though, for Christmas. Cheapest I'm finding is $100 per day, and that's even using Priceline, Orbitz, etc. I think of Thanksgiving as more of a travel holiday than Christmas.

    $100.00 a day includes their usurious insurance rates?

    Nope. Including taxes and everything it's closer to $115 to $120 per day.

    Since we're driving between relatives' houses, having a car would make life 10 times easier. For $250 for two days, though? I can pass.

    Good luck sitting in the back seat between Aunt Evelyn and Uncle Stanley.

    At 125 a day, I could live with that

    Enter it in a demolition derby like they did in the first "Jackass" movie.

    Wow, wicked, between this and your much-beloved trials and tribulations for the DC outing, you have no luck!

    Rental cars always seem to be stupid expensive around Christmas.

    Anyone know of chains that give out good last-minute deals? Not that there will be many to be had, of course ...

    I did some legal work for a major chain years ago. My contact there told me that they typically jack their nationwide rates up during the last two weeks of December to their maximum rate.

    Enterprise is high? I always find them much cheaper.
    And they'll pick you up.
