Slash Rental Car Rates With

My process for finding the lowest rental car rates, based on years of experience and countless research, is typically:

  • check Hertz with my AAA and Entertainment discounts
  • check National with Entertainment discount
  • check for other discounts, deals, and promotions
  • check Avis with various discounts
  • check Hotwire and Priceline

Late last year I added a new step to my process for finding cheap rental cars.


To assure that I am getting the lowest car rental rates, I now use is a FREE service.

At you can make new reservations or have it track existing reservations made elsewhere (like at Hertz and National). automatically rebooks reservations when the rate drops.

The latter might be most important because in the past I spent time rechecking the rates to see if there was a price drop. Admittedly, I did not always happen to find the lowest possible car rental rate. Now the work is done for me.

Last year when launched, I e-mailed my reservation information to them. Now you can enter the information on their website. It automatically applies the discount codes and coupons you entered for your original reservation.

Two examples of saving me money (and time) last year.

  • For a car rental in Austin, Texas, I made a reservation with National. tracked it and lowered the rate to less than $20 a day (including all fees and taxes).
  • For a December car rental in Boston, I could not find a rate lower than $90 a day (before taxes and fees). Ouch! I made a reservation for a three day rental anyway. automatically rebooked my reservation to $85 TOTAL for three days. I was astonished. is a great service, it is FREE, and everyone should use it to find cheap rental car rates.
