Advantage just went through the roof!

I re-booked my standard rental for 11/1 - 11/12 yesterday and went from $182.00 down to $170.00.

Checked again today (because I am obsessed with the unpredictability of rate changes.................well they sure changed today!

New rate for the same car, $530.00

Sorry to "cry wolf" about the Alamo rates everyone.

My dates overlap with October, so maybe you'll see them come down next week? My rate came down to just over $300 from $500+ last week. But like many of you, I was able to snag a great rate from dollar for 11 days, $195, mid-size.

Just ran some Dollar rates and not as good as a few weeks ago but todays were lower. Mini van for a week $350.00 range. Yesterday it was 500.00+. Try today, lock something in. You can always cancel if you get a better deal.

Through Costco you can get a compact for $237 or a midsize for $239 inc taxes and this includes the free additional driver. Dollar charges $10/day extra.

Thanks but I'm not a Costco member and it says you have to present your Costco card. From looking at prices for a week out it seems like they are much cheaper when you wait till the last minute, I'm hoping I can slash something off my Dollar $233 booking

Alamo is still out of sight. More than double that amount for a midsize. Even the compact is more expensive.
With Budget an intermediate SUV $245 or compact $212 inc taxes after e-coupon is applied when return vehicle. Use wendie code D454300 and e-coupon MUGZ029 for $30 off.

I do have a costco membership but have never been asked by any car rental company but I guess it could happen. I do see $160 inc taxes for a compact with Advantage.

Wow! What a great rate for you. Can't wait to get home and check. I hope mine dropped a bit!

EDIT: Just checked Dollar 10/31-11/10 -my original rate is $195. The rate today is $324! Must depend on the dates.

Looks like $92 base rate for a full size + taxes = $142.
