The folks at Hertz were super friendly, and I was in and out easily both picking up & dropping off. They even gave me a ride home, which was a pleasant surprise! Good prices and I will definitely be back.

Not sure who's responsible but I booked with Hertz through CarRentals.com. I prepaid for the car to get the special rate. However, the card I initially booked with was lost. Hertz would not accept the new card although it was the same bank and account that reissued my card. I had to rebook the car rental that cost an additional $75.

What kind of rental car should I get for San Rafael?
