My Rental Car is part of the TPOL Down Under Trip Report.
While many bloggers write Hotel Reviews, few take the time to laud their rental. That’s not fair to the vehicles that make adventures possible. That’s why I’m taking the time to say thank you to license plate CD 06 WE. For four days, the Toyota was my home, much like it was when I crossed the Salt Flats in Bolivia.
After spending intimate days on a croc tour, it was sad to say goodbye to my Toyota Rav 4. It was a love affair that almost didn’t happen. Although I am Hertz Gold courtesy of my SPG status, the agent tried to stick me with my original compact car booking. I had to remind her of my status before she upgraded me to this mid size SUV. All wheel drive is recommended if you’re going exploring as a compact would get swept away at the onset of a flash flood.
Do you bond with your rental? Do you take pictures to commemorate the relationship?
