The last time I hired a small car in the US (I think I was meant to get a Ford Fiesta or similar, but got a Ford Focus), there was no parcel shelf to cover the trunk. This meant that I could never leave anything in the car while parked safely. I've never had a hire car in Europe where the trunk was visible through the windows!
Is it common for hatchbacks in the US to come with nothing to cover the trunk?
Is it possible to ensure I get a car with something to cover the trunk, short of getting a more expensive car (which can be hard when travelling for work)?
