Last week I logged on to Costco.com to book our rental car after we made our flight reservation and the cheapest I could find a midsize car was $169 for 2/25 8PM-3/1 8AM. I figured it was bad week and then have been checking every day this week and it's still the same. The weird thing is if I book 2/25 8PM -2/26 11AM it's 39.00 for that day with Avis then I can book 2/26-3/1 for 79.00 with Budget. so total $120 - that is reasonable for 4 midnights in my opinion (not a great deal, but I'd book that). So now I need to decide if it's worth saving $50 to have to drive back to the airport and switch out my car my first day there. As I type this i know the answer. That's a bet on the craps table. But I'd so much rather put that $50 on the craps table than in those stupid rental car companies hand. Also the best deal isn't with my FAV company Alamo, it's Budget, with their non-existant kiosks and the long lines that lead you to the guy who trys to sell you the extra insurance. BLAGHGH.
