Help anyone with good advice??? thanks

Based on my experience, just call the companies you may rent from and ask them which is cheaper. Give them specific dates and they will let you know which will cost less.

Then book it (no deposit needed) and keep calling back regualrly to see if the rate has gone down.

Weekends are generally the cheapest. I think weekly rates are often cheaper than just a couple of weekdays. Most companies have weekend or weekly specials.

You have to constantly keep looking for deals to come around. Here is a post I started regarding my recent rental car experience


I originally booked back in july for a two day rental. After many changes I eventually got a five day rental for about the same price.
