Rental Car Deal!

21 posts in this topic

So I just reserved a rental from Hertz and their best deal for 4 days was 50 dollars MORE than their best deal for a week rental!

FAIL! for Hertz

FTW! for JamesBond

I recently reserved a car (Lincoln Town Car or DTS) through Hertz for Memorial Day weekend, and the rates by booking through the USAirways site vs. directly via the Hertz website were about $130 less for ~3 1/2 days..and I wasn't using a coupon.

I always overpay for rentals. The underage fee (18-20) sometimes dwarfs the cost for the actual car.

Redneck chick with a '95 Camaro (150k miles btw) we fixed returned her rental... an '09 Corolla. She must have been drunk for most of the time she had it. The passenger front fender was all scraped up, and the wheel cover on that side. She must have found some scratches, because there was red fingernail polish around the Toyota emblem on the trunk lid and left doors (splattered, not carefully applied anywhere), the trunk interior, seats, and ignition key were all splattered in red. She told Enterprise she didn't know who did it, it must have been vandalized.

Hey, here's another tip...especially in California.

If you rent from a NON-airport location, especially picking up on the weekend, you get REALLY good rates and there are less taxes. Basically, you can put another $10 to $20 in your pocket on a $225 rental.

I shop relentlessly for the best rental car deals.

Hertz LOCAL Edition BABY! At the airport it would have been 100 bucks more.

Here renting at the airport is significantly cheaper than non-airport locations. I checked a one-day rental from Avis, the airport was like $15, the non airport was $40. Oh, and corporate discount FTW 'cause our large car (which ended up being an Acadia) in Florida for a week ended up being like $140.

Picked up my Malibu LS today. Love the car. I have had one before, but this one has two HUGE dents in the front passenger door. I'll take some photos.
