Car rental companies, U.S. and international

You long for a trip on the open road, but you aren’t sure your car is trustworthy. Or you can’t fit the whole family and suitcases and coolers into the car you have now.

Scrap the vacay? No way. Renting a car can expand your travel options and offer safety options available in newer vehicles.

Here’s an important caveat: If you’re driving out of state or to another country, make sure the rental car company allows this, the Federal Trade Commission notes in its advice on renting a car.
