Back in June I recommended a new car rental booking website, AutoSlash. And it’s really great — they search not just published rates like every other website, but they also search, test, and apply publicly available coupons and discount codes in order to get the best price. And that’s not all, they keep tracking your reservation to see if they can find a lower price and they email you if they do for permission to make the change.
However, the site does have limitations, they don’t cover all of the major booking agencies. So they haven’t been the true killer app — until now.
They’ve added a new feature, Track a Rental You’ve Already Booked.
If you book your car rental on another website (like Expedia or the Avis website), you can either enter your rental booking details on their site or email your confirmation to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will start tracking the price.
If they find a price reduction, they’ll email you. Price reductions aren’t automatic if you don’t book through them, with this service they’re doing for rental cars what Yapta tries to do for airfares. But it’s an even better fit for cars, since those reservations are usually much more modifiable.
