The smartest thing we did on our recent trip to Washington State (besides bringing the ERGO): renting a car.
We picked up our car from Dollar Rent A Car in Seattle and the service was super fast.
In less than 30 minutes, we had the keys to a 2010 Subaru Forrester (a Mid-Size Specialty car). The crossover was in good quality and ideal for our family of four.
For the rest of our week-long trip, we were able to wander about the city without a hassle. With our car seats installed, a reliable vehicle to count on, and the MotionX-GPS Drive app on my husband's iPhone, we could go anywhere - without inconveniencing others or having to move car seats between vehicles. Plus, it was nice to be able to "get away" as a family whenever we wanted.
Checking the car back in at the end of the week was a piece-of-cake too. We dropped it off and got in the airport shuttle in about 10 minutes. No sweat.
If you're looking to rent a car for an upcoming trip, check out Dollar Rent A Car. When you do, I recommend you check out the "Specials" page. There might be a savings program or discount that is right for you.
