    Try carrentals.com. Gives rates for the period you want for many rental companies. I use the site to check rates daily when I want to rent and book when the price is low. However, I usually book directly with the company site. I mostly use Alamo and Advantage. Good luck with finding what you want.

    Most car agencies require a Saturday night overstay.

    Hold, on, just re-read that. Your first rental was at a significantly less amount of days with a coupon and more than likely their discount code. Now you are renting for longer without a coupon and without a discount code. Of course the price will skyrocket. I bet the fees and taxes alone on a weekly rental out of McCarren is close to $200, if not more. I just paid $300 for 4 days.

    carrentals.com My rental for next week is 9 days with Dollar for $200. National is $450 for the same.

    Entertainment Book is out of business??

    I've found that EZ car rental is great. I travel usually 3-4 times a year to Vegas and have used more rental companies simply because I book from the one that has the best deal. I will NOT use Advantage again. Nor will I use Dollar. Firefly and EZ were the latest ones I rented from and both were good. I know........you're thinking "off the wall" agencies but listen, they worked just fine with me. Also, I plan ahead and will cancel and re-book car rental based on the price as the date to arrive in Vegas gets closer. In June, I booked with EZ for a week and cancel & re-booked with EZ a total of 6 times!. Price kept inching downward and saved about 60$ from original booking. Going again in Oct but will use whomever offers the best deal. The key is to plan ahead.
