Since 1980, Herb and Rhonda Singer have grown Discount Car & Truck into a network of more than 300 franchises that embrace environmentalism. Today, 91 per cent of the total fleet averages 28 miles per gallon on the highway, and in 2011, the company inaugurated a sustainability program featuring e-waste collection. Customer service is a priority, too, so the team offers complimentary pickup and return on a mechanical spider. Corporate and individual renters choose from more that 12 vehicles by makes including Kia, Toyota, and Cadillac, which can speed up to seven passengers to a concert or haul an apartment full of furniture to a bonfire.
With more than 1,000 locations scattered throughout 70 countries, Thrifty Car Rental offers customers an expansive selection of rental cars crafted by manufacturers including Hyundai, Toyota, Chrysler, and Dodge. After signing a waiver and being checked for black-market fuzzy dice, licensed drivers with at least 21 years of life-experience can borrow a vehicle such as the economy-size Hyundai Accent ($30–$34/day), mid-size Toyota Corolla ($35–$37/day), or full-size Chrysler Sebring ($40–$42/day). Unlike their smaller counterparts, bigger vehicles—including the Toyota RAV4 ($60/day) and Dodge Grand Caravan ($70/day)—are capable of carrying large amounts of passengers, cargo, and pinatas stuffed with smaller pinatas, and boast an extra mileage fee ($0.20/kilometre) for trips that exceed the kilometre limit.
The Grand Mac Daddy may look like any other chartered bus as it cruises down the highway, but behind its dark, tinted windows is a full-blown party. Thirty-six passengers can climb aboard this road-tripping bar, outfitted with a club-style sound system, a theater lined with four flat-screen TVs, and plenty of tables to sit and enjoy drinks. The lively party mobile also houses an onboard microwave where revelers can heat up meals or s'mores since campfires are not allowed. For smaller-scale celebrations, MAC Transportation and Tours, LLC deploys a fleet of 20-passenger limo buses and 5-passenger corporate SUVs, which are also outfitted with flat-screen TVs and advanced sound systems.
The company’s courteous chauffeurs also escort clients through wine tours, and shuttle passengers to and from the airport and Buffalo Bills games. Some of MAC Transportation’s vehicles have also transported celebrities, such as Richard Simmons and Jersey Shore’s “The Situation.”

Jeffrey Plourde decided that he wanted to rent a Porsche 911 Cabriolet for his wedding. He and his fiancée made the arrangements months ahead of time, but days before the nuptials the reservation was inexplicably bumbled. He immediately turned to Affinity, recalling a representative’s promise to help out at the last minute if need be, even though Jeffrey had passed on their services initially. Affinity didn’t have a 911, but they acquired one, and gave Jeffrey the chariot he had envisioned for himself and his new bride. This is the type of dependable service Affinity delivers on a regular basis; they decided early on to be a 24/7 rental company so that they could be available in case of accidents or other emergencies.
