Honeymoon in Arizona: Come on, Hertz!

When planning our honeymoon, we decided to rent our car from Hertz. My bank has an agreement with Hertz that gave us 25% off and waived the young driver fee, which was important considering my pup of a husband is only 23. (What can I say? I'm a cradle robber.)

I made the rental car reservation, and I chose a midsize car. The description said "Mazda 6 or similar." I was excited, mostly because I wanted to see if the Mazda 6 really did "zoom zoom" like the commercial promised it would. And also, while not the hottest car on the block, it's pretty stylish. Here's a Mazda 6:

Not bad, right?


It's a Mazda 5, which I referred to all week as a "mini mini-van." I think that's a pretty liberal interpretation of "or similar."


  1. Yes, I have learned to never trust car rental companies, as "cool car or similar" always means that the similar car can fit about the same amount of people and luggage, but is NEVER cool or fun to drive. Or maybe I've just had bad luck. At least you got a Mazda! :)

  2. Yeah, that's a bit of a letdown. Then again, with rental cars, unfortunately letdowns are the trend :(

  3. I keep meaning to call you to catch up, but until I get around to it, I need more posts! I check it everyday hoping to see a new one...but alas. Please put "New blog post" on Ross' to do list. :)

  4. Still checking! :) It may be annoying, but really, I'm just giving you moral support that people want to read your blog posts!
