Finding Hybrid Rental Cars

Hybrid rental cars are becoming more popular; with concern for the environment in the minds of many and the high price of gas being a common concern, more and more travelers are looking at a hybrid car rental as an option.

Availability of this specialty vehicle is limited and they are not found at all car rental companies. The prices of hybrid rental cars tend to be quite a bit higher than a regular rental car of the same size.

I went checking for availability at 8 large car rental companies. This is what I found.
