Dh ended up booking both lots of car hire today. He checked out traveljigsaw and car hire 3000 and commented that they were the same site just in different currencies. Traveljigsaw ended up being a bit cheaper than alamo but required an $80 deposit that you had to forfeit if you cancelled, whereas when booking through alamo you can cancel and rebook if you find cheaper rates. Tomorrow's job is to book the rocky mountaineer from vancouver to whistler. I think it's one of the parts of this trip that i am looking forward to the most (and of course seeing my kids faces light up when we take them to disneyland). Aussie Shaz, I hope that we get offered an upgrade. I'd love a bigger room with the 5 of us sharing. I'll word dh up about paying for an upgrade when we get to the US. He'll have a whinge if I try to pay more now.
