Bid again today. $17 for a Compact (rejected), $19 for a Mid-size (rejected). Pretty soon I'll get into the "normal" PRICELINE zone and won't need to bid.

Another shot in a day or so.

HOTWIRE has some retail rates not too much higher... may want to book one as a back-up and continue to try PRICELINE in the weeks ahead to see of opaque rates break at all.

Bid again today. $18 for a Compact (rejected); $20 for a Mid-size (rejected). Priceline retail has a Mid-size from Alamo for $24/day. I'll try bidding one more day, then it becomes pointless and I'll go with Alamo.

With your stay over a month away i'd book a fully refundable rate and continue to try closer to your check-in... although your bids may not be accepted now, they may be in another 1-3 weeks.

You can also use our Car Rental Checker to easily search rates from multiple sources.

Good luck!

Very helpful tip! I went to Alamo and they had a Mid-size for $19/day. Cheaper than my last couple bids! So much for the "40% average discount" by booking through Priceline.

Anyway, very pleased with a Mid-size rental for $19/day. Thanks again.
