I needed a cheap rental over the weekend. I had a coupon with National that actually made National my cheapest choice; and that was with a compact car. At the ATL location, they now just have one Aisle for all non-Emerald cars. I picked up late Thursday night. It shouldn't have been a surprise to me that there were no compact cars on the Aisle; just 1 Impala and 3 Malibu. (It was a surprise to me that the first Malibu I considered appeared to not have been vacumed, as there were food crumbs everywhere.) As I stood there trying to decide between the cars, none of which I wanted to drive; the staff brought out an Avenger with lower miles and in better condition. I took it. But the experience took me back to 2008, when compact cars we so hard to come by, and all the rental companies were "upgrading" me into larger cars that I didn't want to drive. National at ATL does have some compacts and econos in their fleet. But with the price of gasoline going up, it stands to reason that it may be harder to get you hands on one. Alamo has always had an econo for me everytime I rented one, but those rentals won't count toward your Emerald Status. Enterprise has usually had at least a compact; but usually with over 24,000 miles on it. Without that National coupon, I would go for the Enterprise on the rentals that I "needed" rather than "wanted".
