Vacation and work travel takes me to some of the coolest cities in the world. The car rental counter is always a pain point. Yeah I know what you are going to tell me, why don't you just sign up for one of those clubs that mail you a pathetic car that is suppose to help you bypass the counter and move faster. Well, I hope that I'm not ruining this for anyone out there, but it should be no surprise that even with a nifty membership card the process still sucks. Not just a little bit, but a lot.

The car was equipped with a navigation system and a fair toll tracking system that doesn't charge me a bogus transcending fee. I could go on and on about how clean and well maintained there fleet was, but the biggest bright spot for me was that it was a hassle free rental car process.
