Does This Make Sense?
I'm flying out to Chicago tomorrow and have been busy this afternoon making sure all of my affairs are in order: printed out my boarding pass; spoke with the pastor where I'll be preaching; found out my cousin wasn't going to be able to pick me up so I needed to arrange transportation. I called a car rental company that advertised a good price online, they have a store a few minutes from my mother's home so I could drop it off with no problem...The problem is that because I was wanting to drop off this car at a different location than I was renting it at I was going to have to pay 70.00 for the car itself, 50.00 drop off fee, plus 1.00 per mile on the travel, so now for a 70.00 rental I'm paying probably 150-170 for this car...does that make sense? I've made other arrangements with a different company and will be out about 82.00 plus a full tank of gas...these people wear me out!

Good lesson about the importance of comparison shopping, huh? It is amazing the difference that can be found. I remember once when I was preparing to go to Germany, I was checking airfares and the prices ranged anywhere from $800- $1700 with several airlines. Then someone told me to check with US Air, and I flew round trip for under $400. Pretty crazy.

and the same company that gave you the deal the last time is not always going to be the company that you go with the next time lol !
