Car Rental Scam

We're going to Hawaii in a few weeks (woo-hoo!) And while we're there, we'll have a rental car. I made reservations - checking all the companies that rent at the airport. Turns out there's a 50% difference between the lowest and highest prices. Who would have figured.

Anyway, since we have Simone, we need an infant seat. Most places have a reasonable deal, $10/day, $60 maximum. Dollar, on the other hand, has decided there would be no maximum - therefore the seat rental would be $140 - about twice what it costs to buy our car seat. What a rip-off.

Now we're debating about checking it at the gate, or switching rental companies.
