If you have family coming for the holidays or just want a different ride, Simply Hybrid has a December deal that takes 30% off rentals of its hybrids and energy-efficient cars. The company will even deliver the cars to airports, hotels or other locations for free.

The deal: Toyota Prius, Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf and even a plug-in Prius are some of the selections in the compact category. The website provides the models available but doesn't list prices or take reservations; you have to call to get a quote and make a booking.

When: The 30% discount is good through the end of December.

Tested: I called to check on renting a compact hybrid with the discount and was quoted a rate of $38 a day, instead of $54 a day (excluding tax). The cars come with GPS devices at no extra charge.

Check out the options on the website and then call the company to make a reservation. It's a fun way to try out some new technologies.
