Sorry, TravelJudy, but that has never been my experience. The weekly rate is usually less than 5X the daily rate, sometimes even less than 4X the daily rate. Rent for five days and they re just going to charge you the weekly rate.

Same for a partial day. The daily rate is typically less than just a few hours at the hourly rate. They will charge you the daily rate rather than, say 10X the hourly rate if you rent for 10 hours.

The warning is that if you arrange the rental for five days at the weekly rate (they will automatically charge you the weekly rate), and then you return it after 3 days, you won t get charged only 3/5 of what you originally expected to pay. Rather, you ll get bumped back to the daily rate, and that may be nearly as much as a full week. Or, they may charge you the full contract amount, even if you do bring it back early.
