Just drive the car you paid for to be used for transportation. Your going to be wasting money on a rental that could have gone into gas or food.

Consider that a rent-a-car company builds in ALL cost elements: depreciation, insurance, maintenance, corporate costs, profit etc. and boils it all down into their daily, weekly, monthly or per-mile-driven rates. Your car, being a 2007 MY, has almost no depreciation costs at all, the insurance has been paid anyway whether you drive or not, and it would be sitting there while you pay it all AGAIN for a rented car and period - that means paying TWICE what you would be using just ONCE. Did I get the message across?
