Subject: Car rental Munich-Paris, Colmar & Black Forest hotels?
Hi - We need to rent a car in Munich in late June and drive to Paris to drop off at Gare Montparnasse. The estimates we are hearing from Hertz are $$$ for a 4 day rental. Also tried AutoEurope and that was somewhat better. Any other ideas?

And, while I'm at it, we are driving from Munich through the Black Forest and staying overnight in Colmar. Does anyone have a favorite small hotel/pension in the Black Forest to recommend? Or should we just stay two nights in Colmar and explore the area more thoroughly?

Thanks for the advice.
