RSW Ft. Myers Standard Alamo

Back up rental was with Alamo, for a standard car, total with insider discount was $212.

Tried bidding priceline for the last week up to about $45/day for fullsize and/or standard, with no luck (as well as various other options trying to bring the total under $200, and ideally under $150, but no luch) -- which was really surprising.

Saw this option on Hotwire and booked it at the very last minute and it ended up being with Alamo, but about $21 cheaper than our straight booking through Alamo (which we promptly cancelled).

I'm not sure what was driving the high rates for these three days, but we have never paid this much for a car in Ft. Myers (and I know Ft. Myers is expensive, but really this is outrageous for a 3-day Monday-Thursday rental). Usually we can get a fullsize for under $20/day and a minivan for around $30/day on Priceline. Here is the price breakdown.

Car daily rate - Hotwire hot Rate:$47.95

Rental days:3

Tax recovery charges and fees:$47.80

Subtotal:$191.65

Trip total: $191.65

Not sure why these dates were so expensive, but we've never paid this much in Ft. Myers. Next month we are already planning to fly into and/or out of TPA, MIA or FLL because the car rental rates are so much less expesnive.

Ended up booking on a Standard car with Alamo through HOTWIRE for $191 total.
