How much does it cost to transport your car? Better off just getting a rental for $50 a day?

Personally for me taking my own car because you can carry items or luggage free. Also I will stay outside of DC and visit for a few days then use my own car for a road trip home along the coast.

Do you buy one ticket and you get a companion pass (to book a second ticket) or book two tickets and the second one is discounted? Directions aren't clear on how you validate this deal.
