Car rental Agencies GPS Tracking - Denali Highway

Hi ALL,

I want to drive to Denali Highway and I am renting the car thru Hertz. I called them and asked if they have GPS tracking device on their cars and they said" some of them have , some dont. And they dont disclose it while renting the car".

I am not sure if they are telling the truth.

My question is how would we know, if a car has GPS Tracking device?

Are car rental agencies supposed to disclose it when I rent the car?

Please help!

Thanks

Why would they have to "discuss it"?

Why would that matter if you were going to drive the Denali Hwy?

Then rent your car from an agency which does allow it.........why would you want to break their rules.....

My old grandmabear taught me "It doesn't make it okay to break the rules, if you don't get caught".......

Even worse . . . if you crack your windshield, which occurs pretty routinely or break down - always something to be considered. :)
