I can't stand their policies of charging surcharges to drivers under the age of 21. I'm planning a road trip cross country one way and the charges came up to be $524 per week for a full size vehicle plus a $500 surcharge for being 20 years old. Evil bastards exploiting young adults. I'm a sensational driver, with 2 years of experience and not 1 ticket or accident but i'm still being charged for such a ridiculous policy. Man am I pissed!

Btw, i've tried budget and enterprise so far. :tongue:

Yeah dude, it sucks. total bull.
I'm dealing with the samt thing when I fly to Seattle this month.

I can see if maybe they had higher penalties for fucking up with the car if your a certain age or whatever, but why a blanket policy of assuming that drivers under 25 are incompetent? Do they charge the same fees to people over 65, who's reaction times are typically slowed? I see 30somethings on the road everyday who are utterly clueless and i'm wary of sharing the same roads with them.

I thought 21 was the ultimate age of adultness. Meh, that's a silly idea.

Yeah, no kidding. I remember feeling frustrated at age 18 because everyone expected me to act like *poof* I have to start acting like some adult, but yet I was never treated like one. Now that I'm 21, it's a little better though.
