If you’ve rented a car from Dollar or Thrifty in the state of Florida at any time since 2011, you may have some money coming to you. Here’s why and what to do about it…

It’s a thing that’s so simple, you can’t believe you never thought of it. I’m so excited about how it will change my travels that I’m also happy that I get to share it with y’all.
