    We booked through USrentacar and the car was from Budget.

    We booked a 2 door compact ( knowing they don't do 2 door cars ;-)

    We got lucky and got 2 upgrades and got a Full Size

    We have ordered a 7 seater from Dollar but want them to take out some seats so we can put a scooter in the back. Anyone know if they do this?
