Enterprise, Hertz, and Zipcar recently began offering hourly rates in some cities for short-term rentals.  This makes sense if you only need a vehicle for a brief time.  Zipcar requires a $50 annual membership fee and a one-time $25 application charge.  As an example, in Chicago, auto rental companies charge $8.50 - $9.00 on an hourly basis.  The hourly rate, however, includes all gas, insurance, and tolls.
