Default Tip for car rentals

If you are staying in a rental property, consider telling the rental
agency you are in a hotel. That way there is no info for them
to know that a rental property is being occupied and also for
them to know where the rental car is for possible theft.

Most car companies are honest but it only takes 1 crooked
employee to relay this info onto unscrupulous people.

excellent suggestion liz. i hate to lie but the fewer people who know where you are staying, especially if you are staying at a private rental, the better. those rentals become targets when occupied with tourists. it is easy to watch and wait for you to leave and hit you up for what you left behind. it is also the easiest way to get your vehicle vandalized.
