Your Offer Price: $23.00 (per day)

Total Rental Days: 1

SubTotal: $23.00

Taxes and Fees: $15.14

Total Rental Car Charges: $38.14

 

Bid A: Entered original bid close to midnight on 8/30.  For pickup on 9/1 at 11:30 pm.  Bid $19.  Rejected and offered re-bid.  Did not re-bid.

 

Bid B: Immediately after A rejected, entered separate bid for pickup on 9/2 at 12:30 am.  Bid $21.  Rejected and offered re-bid.  Did not re-bid.

 

On Sun 8/31 re-bid A at $22.  Rejected and offered reservation at $25.  Did not accept.

 

Knowing that $25 was the magic number, tried for $23.  Won.

 

If you're picking up car rental late night/near midnight, this is one way to game the system.  Submit bids for 11:30 pm and 12:30 am.  Becuase it's next day, PL can't tell they are "similar" bids.  Even if you win the 12:30 am bid, you can usually pick up the car earlier.

 

 

Hotwire showing $55.95 for same class car.

AAA discounted rate on Hertz web site was $146.81 for same class car.
