My family and some relatives are coming for my graduation end of May, beginning of June (think TPAC visiting). Some of them have never been to the States, so we are planning on taking them around East Coast cities and such. They will be staying for about 2 weeks and we will most likely be needing a mini-van for about 11 days. We could travel with 2 cars, renting the second car, but with gas and parking almost doubled, not sure its worth it. Plus, we get to stay together with a mini-van. I don't rent cars ever, so am completely new. How should I go about doing this? Hotwire? Weekly rate? I do have AMEX Plat card that gives me some preferred status with Hertz/Avis/Enterprise I believe, would any of that be handy? Also, I am under 25. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
