Thankfully, I've been able to carpool with my wife up to this point.
Anyway, don't want to hijack this too far. Probably a discussion for another thread.
I ask for a car. The first time I asked for one I got a rental, 2nd time was a loaner, and this time it's a loaner b/c Enterprise didn't have any cars.
I did get an extended warranty though so it does include rental.
