I was shopping for a 2-day rental car this morning, and I searched for 48 hours plus 30 minutes. I was curious how it would price, since Avis will still give you a 30 minute grace on the return. I actually probably needed an extra 30 minutes even beyond this, but it was really just to see the price.
Well, they sure taught me! It was going to be a very expensive rental!
I was thrilled to see the option to rent a hummer! But at $3400 that was going to be a little bit outside my budget for a weekend vehicle.
Alright, I bet there are other rental companies at the same airport that would have rented for less, and even if I had booked it I bet it would have given the folks at Autoslash a big chuckle the first thime they ‘found me a lower rate’ and rebooked me.
I shifted back to a 48 hour rental and the price dropped to $21.50 per day.
