His first posting too?

I'll vouch for him if you will give him a full tank of gas.

I will rent you my car if you promise you won't drive it like you stole it, use it for criminal activities, accrue toll charges and traffic tickets, and leave traces of narcotics in the vehicle. A pinky swear should suffice to seal the deal.

Thank you in advance!

I just paid to rent a Ford Fusion from BUDGET (full size car) over Xmas but they up graded me to a Kia SUV because they did’t have Fusion. I paid $ 416. for 10 days & unlimited miles, we drove from Denton, TX. to Ohio. Total miles drove was 2,571 miles. But remember it was over Xmas , most expensive time to rent. Now the prices have went down. I really doubt anybody would want to rent a personal car to have someone else put almost a 1,000 miles on their car. If you rent a car & it’s a Full size car or smaller you’ll get UNLIMITED MILES for FREE, plus it’ll probably be 230 to $280. Look into it, because renting from a private owner would be to much liability for them. Good luck finding someone!

I'm sure a rental company will want to see your drivers license before they'll rent to you.
No, they don't even ask if you have one. I don't think they really care.

Is this a trick question? Did my wife pay to have me break my resolution? Most people wouldn't loan their bicycle no less any Motor Vehicle.

We had a friend who asked for our Golf Cart when we went to Jersey last year and got an instantaneous NO. They were perplexed. Not me.

OP, if you get someone to do this for you could you check back in and let us know about it. I wanna put it in my book.

There is an app called Turo that is like Airbnb for cars. But I have to agree just use a car rental place. It would be like 300 for the car and 200 for the insurance and taxes. I rent all the time. If you have a car that is fully insured at home you can save the insurance BUT you would still have to rent for the car if it was layed up in a body shop and that could be months. I always pay for the insurance

The only reason I would think they want a private party is because all car rental agencies require a credit card, and maybe they don't have one. Of course, we'll never know since this was a brand new poster, making his first post and will probably never return.

I think you may be right. I though it was unusual that the OP has been a member for so long, and only now had 1 post.
