Perfecto: Hertz in South Florida
So much to see and so much to do and
so many places to go in February in Miami Beach and three terrific weeks
to do it in.
A car rental is a must -- and not just any car rental from any company
but a sports car, a convertible and the top of the heap company to rent
from - - heavenly Hertz!
After all, weren’t we FROMMERLUXURYTRAVEL!
decided to skip the route of airport pickup and return and go for
getting and returning our Audi Cabriolet convertible at the
Fontainebleau Hotel location on Collins Avenue close to where we were
staying. The pickup was effortless. The silver beauty was waiting for
us at the agreed at price and we were off.
The top stayed down over the next day and we drew admiring glances on
every road and byway. Parkers at the hotels out-did themselves to get a
chance to get behind the wheel.
But then there was a small problem. We could not get the top to go up.
The old memory of a negative experience with an Audi came back to mind.
But this was 2007. This was Miami Beach. This was Hertz.
We drove to the main Hertz location near South Beach and capable,
concerned and knowledgeable reps made the slight adjustment and we never
worried about technical glitches again.
All over Miami Beach - to the beach, to dinner at Joe’s Stone Crab
which was better than advertised and the price was right, to hotel
hopping, to South Beach (driving down Ocean Drive along with the other
tourists and taking in the scene), to the Florida Keys - through it all,
the ride was as important as the destination.
When our time in the sun was finally and sadly over, we winced at the
thought of having to return the splendid, silver Audi Cabriolet
convertible. But all things come to and end. The return was as
effortless as the pickup.
Ah, if all travel experience were as heavenly as renting a car from
