Anybody know how the rates and vehicle availability from a desk in a hotel compare to reserving on the internet and getting the car at the rental center? I put this post where I wanted it and some well-meaning moderator moved it here. I put it where it was for a specific reason. It was a reply to someone who had made a suggestion that I felt had not been thought through. Thanks to those helpful posters who answered here. Now all we need to do is to get the people from the other thread to read this one.
