On the flip side, there's "very little point" in getting a manual licence if you only ever intend to own automatics.
I've driven manual cars for nearly 6 years now. I've just changed my daily driver to a Jag XJ6 auto and I doubt whether I'll ever own a manual car again. Admittedly my weekend toy is a manual, but I shall be changing that very soon anyway.
An automatic only licence isn't neccesarily a negative thing.
Far too many blind Auto haters on here (and in the UK) unfortunately.
In reality, if you want an auto that's what you'll buy. Having less options won't make a difference.
As for hiring a car... How often do you do that for it to matter? In the past when I've needed to hire a vehicle I've usually just bought something with a couple of hundred quid profit in it and sold it on when it's done the job it was bought for.
Autos and manuals both have their ups and downs. If I only had an auto license, the main limitations for me would be being unable to drive pool cars and company vehicles, and I would have struggled when I have needed to hire vans. I've never dealt with a van hire place that does vans with automatic transmission.
