There IS a $50.00 annual fee and do you get reduced rates or the only benefit is not having to stand in line for the car? Is Emerald Club the same as Emerald Aisle? We have always used Dollar and have been happy with them. As soon as we get off the plane, my husband goes to the car rental counter while my son and I get our luggage. More times than not, he is finished and waiting in the car by the time we are finished with the luggage, so that has worked well. Just by looking online now, I see an intermediate using the priceless code and Entertainment coupon for a rate of 109.90 including tax. In order to get this rate, do I have to join this club? Of course that is a fantastic rate I just was not sure if I had to pay the $50.00 annual fee or something. Im sorry to ask so much. Thanks for any help.
