saved 100 CHF on three day car rental

Because I subscribe to a VPN service, the on-line rental web site did not recognize my Swiss location. So the three day rental for an Opel Astra came to CHF 192. The EXACT same rental agreement generated for Swiss residents would have been CFH 298. My annual subscription just paid for itself - twice!

That's interesting. I always thought that the rental price always varies by the rental location, not by the renters location. Which company does this?
