Just a short point... if you were travelling to Europe at your own expense,
in other words, NOT ON BUSINESS, would you need to rent a car while there???
How much would that cost??? My father has bought 2 Audis with European delivery
as my parents holiday for 6 weeks in UK/Mainland Europe every 2 years. Six
weeks of rentals could be big dollars!!!!

It was worth it to him!
