No there is no emerald aisle at the CC center. Generally they are only features of airports. So if you rent at the CC or dolphin, you get the level of service you sign up for. If you book via emerald, you will get a mid-size car. However, if you can get a larger car picking up at the cc for a cheaper price, it would be a good deal.

I'm a new Emerald Club member I only rent a car one a year although mostly with National so I don't know if this is normal. Like you said, there is no Emerald Aisle but the CC center knows how to take care of their members. When the shuttle picked me up at my hotel they knew I was an Emerald Club member. Instead of going through the line the "manager" met me at the shuttle and we sat in his office to do the paperwork. Being my first Emerald Club rental he needed to double check drivers lincense and credit card numbers entered previously. I had rented a compact car and ended up with a nearly brand new, under 1,500 mile, Kia Optima, a full size car. I'm assuming the newest compact - Full Sized car on the lot. By the time we were done with the paperwork the car was warming up waiting for me right out front.

Picked up on Monday, 2/11, about 3:45pm. There was a Dodge minivan, a SUV, that I didn't get details on and two Chevy Equinox, in addition to the usual midsize suspects.

Picked up Friday 2/15 at 2. Side b.

Both aisles only had cars. EA had a fleet of Malibus, a few Camrys and a few other odds and ends. Executive had Altimas, Camrys, 300's etc. I took the only Passat

Did overhear one upset family as I surveyed the Aisle, family of 5 including woman in wheelchair did not think they were going to fit in a Malibu and with it being a holiday weekend the agent said there would be nothing bigger on the aisle

We picked up our car on the tenth, and I didn't notice any SUVs on the side the cruises drop off at.

But for anyone who is Executive and wants to hear, we got a Ford Flex. 84 miles on it with Sirius. Fab car, DH wants one now lol. There were several Challengers, or something that looks like one (DH and DS are asleep so I can't ask them).

Thanks for posting. We are Executive and have been watching for a Ford Flex on the rental aisle for a long while. We've yet to snag one. Generally we get the Ford Edge, which we love.

Challengers are two door cars, Chargers are 4 door cars. Easy to confuse them.

Standard size

I was able to reserve a standard size for the same price as a mid size with National. When we arrive, will we still be allowed to select from the Emerald Aisle or will we have to select from the emerald reserve line? Hope the question makes sense...

Generally the standard size is the same price as the midsize at National. However you will have to select a car from the standard aisle. You will not get the chance of getting a minivan or some other non standard size vehicle. If you choose midsize you can have your pick of whatever is on the midsize aisle which could include various types of vehicles.

Thank you so much! I thought that was the case. I am going to change our reservation to a mid size. I really like the idea of possibly having the chance I'd scoring something fun to drive!

Another option would be to make a second reservation for a midsized car. That way, you could have your choice of any car in the midsized, standard, or emerald aisle section. I just joined emerald club (I should have joined sooner but didn't know about the free options). Prior to that I normally reserved a compact car and often times there are a mid sized or 2 in that row.

I remember one time in Tampa I went to the counter and they really were pushing an upgrade to a midsized car. I politely told them no, went out to pick up my car and the compact row was full of midsized cars.

Silly question, but how does having two different reservations work?

When you book a specific size, that is where you go to select your car. You booked a Standard and since they do not have a standard section, you will be selecting from the full size area.
