Default Mint Cars-on-Demand Thoughts/Experiences??

Please tell me your experience??

Yes still looking at different options for day trips. Just watched their really stupid video online.

I have applied for Hertz on demand as all their cars come with GPS which an Aussie in NYC really needs!!

You don't need a car. You can get to pretty much anywhere on public transportation with the occasional taxi, and New York traffic is crazy and not for people who aren't used to the city.

Oh! I thought you meant you were coming on vacation from Australia, my bad!

I took transit to Six Flags once, take the PATH to Newark and there is a bus that goes down there.

You can buy a GPS and use it in any rental car.
