Plan Now For Spring Road Trips  
Now’s the time to start planning fall road trips, especially if you intend to rent a car. Book ahead to ensure the best selection. Rental car rates and availability can vary, depending on the city and seasonal demand. Review all additional fees, taxes, and surcharges before you confirm your reservation. And remember,  
the cheapest deal isn’t much of a value if you don’t get the type of vehicle and options that you need to enjoy your trip.  Whether you’re hitting the road to go back to school or to visit the great outdoors, there’s an adventure waiting for you on the open road!
