It is all a function of supply and demand, and it pays to shop around.
I usually start by checking Priceline first, to determine which rental company is offering the lowest rates for my chosen dates. Then I go to that company’s website to see more details.
Sometimes I use a rental code from an airline website, and sometimes I go through a cash back shopping portal like FatWallet.
On a recent trip, I discovered several other random factors that can make a big difference in car rental costs.
- Return Location
- Date of Booking
- Pick-up Location
- Pick-up Time
