Honestly, I like Aureus and thats who I currently work for, but they don't pay for a rental car or have at least never been willing to do so that I know of, so yeah, if you don't take your car it would cut into your pay. They do pay for your milege to and from your assignment, and the rate is quite decent. What I like about Aureus is that since I travel with a family, I need a much bigger place to live and they always provide and pay for all of it, which many companies won't do, and instead try to charge me for excess rent, extra furniture rental, and only pay a portion of utilities. Aureus has NEVER done this to me.
If you don't want to drive your own car and you want a rental car paid for, then try Maxim or Soliant because I know other RT travelers that they always do this for. Me? Well with my kids I would rather have my own vehicle there and not stuck with some compact rental.
Oh, and I do like their healthinsurance although its a bit pricey for my family coverage.. if your going solo, yours should be pretty cheap.
Gotta love their rewards program too! Points for hours worked redeemable for all kinds of neat stuff and gift certs for airline tickets, gas, and alot of stores like Gap, BestBuy, Walmart, Target and so forth.
Housing (Aurhomes) is awesome too.. always nothing but the best locations and amenities. Funny, sort of, but on my next contract I'm going to a city where my oldest daughter lives and I requested a place near her (a safe & decent, but 'gasp' working class area) and they are hesitant, but willing.. they would rather have me in the nicest (i.e. most expensive) area in town. I can't complain, they really try to make sure everything is perfect.
Good luck with your first contract!
