Arranging your vehicle rental online in advance of the actual trip makes sense for several reasons
- The all-inclusive price will not be increased
- It's quicker at the car hire counter (although you wouldn't believe that if you've been part of the endless queues at Alamo in Miami)
- It makes sure that you receive the model of car that you request
- The full online booking is done at your own pace rather than at your destination where you are likely to be surrounded by a tired partner and a selection of unruly children
