Rental Woes

Oh rental companies! So unforgiving… If only my 25th birthday was a few months sooner.

Costco appears to the cheapest way to reduce rental rates, although their online system refuses to rent to under 25ers. Budget with a family/friends discount will gladly rent to a 24 year-old but only after a 1,700 USD surcharge. This would peg a 60 day car rental at over $4,000 Canadian. Other consideration, only Costco allows for affordable rental from airports, because otherwise there is an additional $600 concession fee.


1. Find out if Costco will rent to 24-year olds and what the surcharge will be.

2. Coordinate rentals to reduce costs. At $50/day even two weeks savings is $700 USD
