My All-Time Favorite Car Upgrade!

I’m not loyal to any rental car brand.  When I rent a car, my biggest concern is finding the agency with the best price.

I usually rent the cheapest car, which is usually an economy car.  Often times, I get upgraded to a compact or a mid-size car, because car rental companies don’t have a large stock of economy cars on the lot.

During my recent visit to San Francisco, I received my all-time favorite Avis free upgrade!
