JFK Midsize SUV 2-13 Jul 2012

I was willing to pay about $500 for a midsize SUV from JFK for the period 2-13 Jul 2012. Even to go as far as travelling to LGA or EWR to pick up the car for 3 person and 3 luggages.

I tried bidding on priceline up to $35 per day (around 550 in total inclusive of tax) and was not successful.

In the end, I use carrental.com and reserve a car. I monitored the car prices every other day and my initial booking was as follows:

1. Enterprise (2-13 Jul midsize SUV) EWR

- 427.14 include tax

2. Thrifty (2-13 Jul midsize SUV)JFK

- 478.83 include tax

3.Dollar (2-13 Jul midsize SUV)JFK

- 428.87 include tax

4. Thrifty (2-13 Jul midsize SUV)JFK

- 367.74 include tax (Rate code RXHW8 - given automatically by thrifty and not keyed in - everyone can use)

Point is dont panic when the prices that you bid dont turn up well. I just had to exercised patience in bidding.

The latest i check the prices for the same duration is between $680-$800.

I am surprise that prices fluctuate so wildly in the span of a couple of days. I doubt I will get any better rates than the 357.74. But I am still monitoring and hoping for the best.
