    This past week I rented twice from Dollar at MCO because they were SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper than my standard go-to, Hertz. It had been quite a while since my last Dollar rental, and I didn't recall that they had a pick-your-own-car approach similar to National. Is this standard at all/many Dollar locations?

    I signed up now for their Express program to speed up the rental pickup time (though it was actually pretty fast and the staff was quite friendly... much nicer than Hertz at that particular location).

    Interesting, I've yet to see exactly that with Dollar.

    I have seen them use the "board" with Express members names and vehicle slot numbers similar to what their cousin Thrifty now does at certain locations, DEN to name one I'm familiar with.

    Just rented with Dollar in PHX and was surprised that when going to the cars the Express booth let me choose whatever car I wanted and changed the paperwork quick. And I'm not even an Express member, yet. I picked a new (2K) Kia Soul suv for mid-size rate.

    They said that "choose your car in the lot" is their policy now.

    Last time I rented Dollar was in Fort Lauderdale and they had the same policy... just "pick a car" from whatever you see in the aisle.
