    DCA is an airport I frequent, and I would like to reserve a mercedes, but online I never see it available. When I show up there is often a sign that says "Now Available Here." I inquire at the office, and they say I need to reserve online...argh!

    I have had that happen a couple of times, oddly at DCA both times and for a GLK both times. I called the 800# which quickly found me a car. I am PC so that may have helped, but I doubt it. I find many rentals will not work online but do work with a call. Antediluvian, but it works
