I just landed at LAX for a quick job. 6am outbound, 4hr drive to San Luis Obiz, work tomorrow and redeye home.

I know better, but in a moment of weakness I didn’t follow my personal rule and rented a car from Dollar rather than Hertz.

After a six hour spam-can cross country cattle ride with some dude aromatizing the cabin with his G.I. fragrance, we are now stuck in the endless line at the rental counter.

Companies that cater to the business traveler have it all figured out. It’s painless and even semi-enjoyable.

In life, you get what you pay for, and on the road, this is key. Net net is after a long farty flight, it ain’t worth the $30.

Use the Hertz Gold!
