Luxury Car Rental
When an Economy Car Just Won't Do
For most people, a car rental is nothing more than a vehicle to get around in when they're in a new town. The size and quality of the car that is rented is determined only by its use. If you're traveling with your family, a sedan or SUV may be what you need, or if you're traveling alone, a small compact car may be just enough.
However, if you're renting a car to pick up important business clients or visiting dignitaries, and don't want to move all the way to a limousine rental, a rental luxury car may be just what you need.
While most luxury rental car companies are specific to certain areas, mainly large urban centers such as New York or Los Angeles, there are several national rental companies who will provide luxury rental cars when needed.
Enterprise Rental Cars, www.enterprise.com, will provide Cadillac and Lincoln sedans at most of their rental agencies.
Budget Rental Cars, www.budget.com, carries Lincoln luxury cars.

As with all types of car rentals, it's best to book your rental well in advance of when you're actually going to need it. This is perhaps more important when booking a luxury car, for two reasons. The first is that, if you're booking a car during a major event or convention, the rental company is more likely to run out of the type of car that you want to rent, because most companies will not keep as many upper-level cars on hand as they do budget-priced ones. The second reason is that, if you have to have a luxury car, you don't have a lot of other options. If the rental place runs out of Honda Civics, it's not a big deal, because you can easily move to a different type of car, and the company will generally give you the upgrade for free. If the company runs out of their selection of luxury cars, however, there's really nowhere else to go. So book early and save on headaches later on!
