Whereabouts do you plan to travel, Europe or the United States? Do you plan to rent a Camaro; if so, were you looking for a V6 model or a V8 model? V6 models don't require a specific grade of fuel, but if you have (or are planning to rent) a V8, you'll need to use premium fuel. 93 octane is best if you can find it, 91 octane works fine if you can't find 93.

If you're renting then use the cheap stuff.

Why use the cheap stuff? It's just going to knock it down to the 87 Octane table and make the rental less enjoyable.

Since the car is a rental, chances are someone (many?) before you ran 87 octane in it.
Run the first tank of fuel until the low fuel light comes on then fill with 93 or 91 as available in your area. Then pull the fuses overnight to reset octane table, enjoy your new found power for the rest of your drive!
