The beauty of this assignment for me is that I am under no obligation to conform to anybody’s list of topics or programs. I have been given free reign on what I will discuss. My idea was this: I’ll alternate days with past travel technique articles and then the next day fill you in on the doings of our free trip. Katy will supply the photos and comments and suggestions will still be welcome.
As many of you know, I am not a big rental car fan. The reason: When I arrive at my destination, I want to keep moving. When I hit my destination, I don’t want to stand in another line at a rental car counter and fill out paperwork. That is the one thing that intrigues me about this “Choose Any Car” concept you hear John McEnroe screaming about on the TV ads. That, to me, sounds like a significant time saver and may push me into considering renting more cars.
I’d love to hear your comments on how smoothly the “bypass the rental counter” works with National.
Tomorrow: “We are off to Greece!”
PS: Sorry I didn’t get to comment back on all of yesterday’s comments from readers. I spent the day in Miami with my son Andrew, who lives in Australia. He is in the country for just a short time. I’ll try to catch up tomorrow.
