Using free rental coupons from National for a long weekend with my wife in Savannah/Hilton Head in a couple weeks -- what type of car should I reserve? Thinking convertible, but maybe premium car...

Well, that could be fun! I've only had a convertible once and it was kind of fun. To be honest, I was kind of freaked out by driving it and was totally not prepared for how it blew my hair around. If you do get one, 1. Make sure that your wife has multiple hair ties to tie her hair (and sunglasses to block wind) and 2. Figure out how to put the roof up/down before you are on the freeway! Also, convertible usually means less luggage space, but doubt that you will have a lot. Have fun! It really does sound like a great vacation!

I always go low and then wiggle my way into an upgrade. Go with whatever you can afford that will make your wife happy. Have fun!

You're welcome! I first put my top down while going down the freeway in Miami and my hair blew in my face and I could not see! #amateur in my defense, I was not planning on a convertible- they just upgraded me.
