Rental cars websites and phones to get you on the road

The road beckons, but your car frightens. It may not be trustworthy, it may be too small or it may be both. Answer: renting or car sharing, either of which gives you a greater sense of security because the cars are newer, maybe some extra space and more safety features.

Before you rent, make sure the rental car company allows this, the Federal Trade Commission notes in its advice on renting a car.
