    Try Budget, Enterprise and National. Oh and Dollar. They tend to be the lowest. DO NOT GO with Easy Car Rental! They are terrible and their cars are wrecks!!!

    Or, you could just ask Johnie! :D :D

    Tink we managed to get a small car for my trip in June for $10/day!! We did it through Hotwire. All the rental places through hotwire are in the terminal so no transfers needed.

    BTW, I have used EZ before in 2004/2005 and we didn't have any problems at all. Just my experience but I haven't used them in a few years.

    We always rent a car when we go. Lately I've been using Priceline and getting good rates. You could try that. It's usually cheaper than the traditional route.
