ROC 08/14-08/17 Bidding Assistance

I am trying to bid a rental car on priceline for

 

ROC 08/14-08/17 (8pm to 8pm)

 

I've bid up to $20 on each car I possibly could with no luck.

 

I am not picky on the type of car but would prefer to NOT drive the tiniest car available (compact).

 

Am I bidding too early? It's not a huge city so I'm pretty sure there are plenty of cars available.

 

Any advice?

 

(I live here, I'm just renting the car to go out of town. I don't want to book an alternative...if worse comes to worse I will drive my own car but would prefer a rental)

Use our Car Rental Rate Checker to check and compare rates ('retail' rates as well as those from HOTWIRE and PRICELINE)

I'm guessing you're looking more in the $21-$24 rates to be successful (HOTWIRE has a Midsize care for $105 all-in if this would be of any interest)

Thanks, still no luck! I'll keep trying. I guess I can't get passed the fact that I won a full size car in Tampa last summer for $15/day for a week...big city compared to here! So it's killing me to pay more than that LOL

Just like hotel rooms, car rental rates are date and location specific.

There could be an event/festival/conference happening in town during these dates which is driving up demand (and prices) or it could be fewer car rental companies in the area so with less competition it's easier to keep rates high (car rental rates in Florida are often very inexpensive... i wouldn't use your Tampa rate for any type of comparison to your Buffalo rental).
