    Just booked a full size car thru Costco Travel for 6 days, Sunday to Friday in August for 128.00 dollars total including taxes. Right now they have a coupon for $30.00 off.

    Sunday to Friday, August 12-17. I'll be checking it everyday to see if it comes down anymore. The price dropped $18.00 in the last 2 days.

    Keep checking! Costco Travel has great prices.

    I originally booked an intermediate car for 5 days at Budget RAC for early July @ $169. In early June, I re-booked the same 5 days for $143.

    Last week I re-booked again for $93, and just 2 days ago I re-booked for $69. This is including taxes and fees. The car rental itself was only $29 for the 5 days. :D

    I just posted on "An Idiots guide to renting a car in Vegas"

    This is about my reservation through Costco. I said I wasn't going to look anymore but you have me curious!

    where is the $30 coupon?

    I'm a Costco member and may book a car through their site. Where is the $30 coupon? Is it included with the quote?

    You don't need the coupon. You can either scroll down the offers or the easiest is, Low Price Finder , click continue. The offer code is on my reservation so I would say yes to the additional discount, it is included.

    Yes you do need to be a member in order to make a reservation on their site.

    Well I just checked and the prices have doubled for my rental period.

    Rental car prices flucuate so much that one has to check multiple times a day.

    Nice price find! Unfortunately, I'd have to spring for the $55 membership fee so including that with the great price it puts me at the same rate for a Budget reservation I already have.

    Scored again, down to $111.00 for a full size thru Costco. At this rate, by the time I go, it will be free. HA HA HA. The $30.00 coupon is automatic ask for it anyway when you call. It doesn't show up on the website as a promo code.

    The Costco sale is over. Just checked today, and a full size vehicle is now $222.00 and no $30.00 off.

    Check again Monday. Sometimes car rental prices as well as air is more on the weekends for some reason.
