Looks good. I didn`t expect a Ford Mustang for a mystery booking. Where did you pick it up @Lauderdalerick?

I picked it up at Fort Lauderdale hollywood international airport. I booked the mystery car up to 6 months in advance:

Did you get any special rate for a 6 months in advance booking?

No. But budget did say they would take 25% off the rental if i added on 4 or more add ons. I didn’t add anything. But the car did come with sirius xm included.

Haha, that`s funny. That`s Budget :!: :!: I would have also refused. Of course they earn a lot of money with the extras.

The only add on’s that even seem closely appealing is the e-toll toll pas but I didn’t buy it this time because 1. Florida has toll by plate. 2. I’m driving on interstate highways. But my car was originally supposed to be $354. But they put a $200 which added the bill to over $500. I didn’t dispute it because i was in line since 10 pm it was almost midnight and i just wanted to leave.

Fully understand that you wanted to leave. I feel always terrible when I had a flight with late arrival. This justifies to pay more than usual.
What`s the Sun Pass in Florida? Is this a toll plate?

A sun pass in Florida is a toll pass that allows you pay tolls without paying cash and it lets you drive in Toll by plate is a toll program that allows you to drive through toll roads without paying right away but with toll by plate you receive a bill in the mail.

Just have to decide whether I`ll book the Mystery Car from Budget or Sixt. I think I`ll take Sixt. The cars are much newer there and the fleet is more attractive. ;)
