Be careful with Advantage. I rented from them for business in Austin once and they don't always honor their reserved prices. I reserved a car and my company booked me to pick up the car at 4p.m. just because that was the default. I showed up at 5:30 to get the car because I went to get it after work and when I got there they said my car was rented and I would have to pay an extra $100 to upgrade because they didn't have anything in my class available. I ended up going over and thankfully Avis still had cars available. I don't know if they would do this if you were going to have a flight registered on your account but I thought it was very shady.
I have never rented from them sense because of that experience. Of course the office in IAH could be completely different than the one in Austin. Make sure you read reviews.
