    Just a question if anyone has tipped the car rental companies for a complimentary upgrade on the type of vehicle they were renting? And if you have, did you tip the rental desk or the garage attendant for the upgrade? Thanks

    Why pay $20 when you can prob upgrade for a few bucks a day extra anyway?

    I said on another thread I gave them 10 bucks to skip the upsell insurance crap routine.

    I usually book full size, use Alamo and can check in on line, no counter. When I get to lot, I just ask attendant for upgrade. Give them a small thank you if they upgrade me. Haven't been turned down yet.

    As a reminder, after you book, check back often, rates change almost weekly.

    We always get an upgrade at Alamo just by asking. Never had much luck with Budget though. Once we booked a convertible at Alamo because that happened to be the cheapest but we didn't want it so we asked for a DOWNGRADE to a mid-size, our preferred car, and got that too.
