American's number one travel problem is a car rental shortage. Due to the high demand for car rental and shortage of available vehicles, the pricing has increased almost 50%. The shortage could last for another two years, as a global microchip shortage has impacted car production.
Due to the pandemic most rental car companies sold a majority of their vehicles creating a shortage. There are options, which include transporting your vehicle to your travel destination. The total cost to ship your car can be cheaper than the daily rental rate.
