Car Rental Coupons

Our relatives are already excited to go on a road trip soon and why not, summer vacation is supposed to be spent doing these fun things. Uncle excitedly asked me to help him look for car rental services he will consider using. Why rent a car I asked? He explained that there are discounts, extra mileage, free upgrades and a whole lot more of perks. Ok, he got me at discounts :D

I found three car rental services that have car rental coupons. These three car rental services have car rental special codes that can be used several times. These codes have instructions about the rentals and how one can reserve online, print the reservation notice and go to accredited car rental services.

One of the three car rentals I showed my Uncle is the Alamo car rental coupons. An hour advanced notice in the Last Minute Specials can give one access to a rental car.

In participating North American locations, National Car Rental Coupons on the other hand have discounts for full-size cars that were reserved in advance. It is wise to reserve in advanced due to the availability of vehicles one can choose. There are a few conditions for restrictions like location of pick-up and drop-off services.

The last one we discussed was Hertz Car Rental Coupons that has almost the same conditions and restrictions as the second car rental services.

So there, my research for my Uncle is done. I am awaiting for his response since I already emailed him the details. If only I can join them that would be fun :)

SCTEx

Ano nga ba ang mga hudyat ng pagbabago?

Makabagong teknolohiya?

Mga kalyeng puwede maikumpara sa international standards?

Isang lipunang may tugon sa pangangailangan ng mga tao?

Tama lahat iyan.

Eto, SCTEx, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway. Bagama’t mas malayo ang biyahe kumpara sa Olongapo-Gapan road, tipong mas madali dahil walang trapik.

Pabor ito sa mga manlalakbay katulad namin (kahit na ito ay mas malayo at mas mahal kesa sa dating dinadaan). Katunayan, may bus na nga na dumadaan dito.

Kaya ang isang pala-isipan sa akin ang mga bayang hindi na nadadaanan.

Hindi kaya sila mahalintulad sa Route 66 na nai-feature sa Cars movie? Hmmmm…

Sino na ang bibili sa mga naglalako ng prutas, gulay, meron pang isda, alimango at suka (vinegar)? Meron pa din siguro pero nabawasan na.

Phase 2 Project: Segment 8.1 Connecting Mindanao Avenue to NLEX

Simula pa lang ng paggawa ng malaking kalye malapit sa amin.

Noong Lunes ay isinarado na ang daan na dinadaanan namin kaya iikot na kami sa matrapik na palengke. Pero sige lang, pagkatapos naman nito (kung matatapos agad) ay magiging mas maaliwalas ang aming pag-uwi. Wala naman sana problema kung hindi nagsasara ng gate yung katabing subdibisyon mula 10am  – 5pm at 10pm – 6am para hindi na kaya naipilitan kami umiikot ng malayo. Hmph.

Importante ang daan na ito kasi mismo si PGMA (S)cares ay dumalo sa groundbreaking ceremonies noong nakaraang buwan (kung tama ang pagkakatanda ko).

Pasensiya na po, malabo, umaandar kasi kami at may tint pa ang salamin.

Anyway… (pakibasa po hanggang bago magdulo, nandun ang climax)

Ang major road na ito ay mag-uugnay ng Mindanao Avenue sa NLEX or North Luzon Expressway. Heto ang isa pang link tungkol sa project.

Alam nyo ba kung magkano ang 2.8 kilometer na daang ito? 1.5 billion pesos lang naman.

Kung ito ay idi-divide sa 2.8 kilometers, pumapatak na 535 million++ pesoses for less than a kilometer ang presyo ng daan na yan. Sosyal di ba?

Twing! Twing! (Tunog ng cash register yan, lol!)
