Update August 4 2020: Face Masks Required at These Rental Car Facilities in the United States

First, airlines started to require that passengers and employees wear masks or cloth coverings for their faces in response to the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic. Then, lodging companies started following the lead of the American Hotel and Lodging Association — which is an organization that represents the lodging industry in the United States — which released a checklist of guidelines for the standardization of the safety experience of both guests and employees of hotel and resort properties throughout the United States on Thursday, July 16, 2020…

…and now, additional rental car companies are requiring that masks or cloth coverings for the face be worn in their facilities effective as of Tuesday, August 4, 2020 since this original article was posted on Wednesday, July 22, 2020.

Save on Rental Cars Leaving Arizona One Way Spring 2020 — But…

I wrote this article back in 2018 about how you can rent a car from Arizona and drive it out one way to much of the western United States for a rental rate of as low as $8.45 per day, if you can position yourself to do so…

…but this year, the going rate is no less expensive than $29.99 per day — and that rate is offered by Hertz, by Enterprise, by Dollar Rent A Car, and by Alamo Rent A Car; while you can use rentalcars.com to search for slightly more expensive deals from National Car Rental, Avis, Budget, and other rental car companies.

The synopsis of the deals — of which you can find out additional details by clicking on the provided links — are as follows…

Amazing Deal? $51.00 Total Car Rental For Nine Days AND 5,000 Hilton Honors Points

For slightly less than $51.00 total — including all taxes and fees — you can rent a car for nine days and possibly earn 5,000 Hilton Honors points in the process.

One rental car company is currently offering a rate of as low as $3.80 per day one way to rent a car from New York and other locations in the northeastern United States to Florida this fall — which is quite possibly the lowest rate ever offered for a promotion such as this — and you could possibly earn 500 base Hilton Honors points plus 500 bonus Hilton Honors points for each day you rent the car up to a maximum of 5,000 points…

…but the oddest part of the $3.80 per day promotion is that…

Photographs of What NOT to Do With a Rental From Enterprise

While I was out waiting for the start of an event, I had to look twice to see what happened to a truck whose driver apparently ignored a low clearance warning for an overpass and did some significant damage to the top of the cargo area of a panel truck, as shown in these photographs of what NOT to do with a rental from Enterprise Rent-A-Car — or, in this case, Enterprise Truck Rental.

Without further ado, here is what the truck looked like after the incident — and no, I…

Be Careful About Returning Rental Cars After Hours…

I rented a car on a Saturday for 24 hours from a local office of Enterprise Rent-A-Car not far from where I am based for me to take a day trip where the destination is four hours away.

When I went to return the vehicle at the office on Sunday, it was closed; so I figured I would drop the keys off in the drop box located on the left side of the entrance to the office — until I read the words at the bottom…
