HOTWIRE has both an Ecomony Car and a Compact Car at the same price, $17/day, which comes to $151 all-in.

If you want to try to beat this on priceline, i would start at $11/day and increase each day by $1-$2 unitl you equal the HOTWIRE rate, at which point you can just take the HOTWIRE offer.

Any questions feel free to ask.

Good Luck and let us know how it goes.

hi, thanks

Below is what i found on hotwire

7 Rental days:

$13.95 Daily rate:

$97.65 Subtotal:

Tax recovery

$56.68 charges and fees:

$154.33 Total cost:

If I can get a daily priceline rate of $11, Would it be correct to assume the charges & fees

would also be about $56 ? or can I hope for less ?

Also is it too early to start bidding ?

thanks mark

The taxes should be the same for each, but the fees that each charges will be different.

Priceline will show you the total amount before you place you bid, so you can confirm that if accepted it would still be your 'best deal'.

The rental car company is Alamo.

I reran Car Rental Checker

A month ago, - the best deal was from dollar rental car.

Weekly Total

$130.46 $191.86

Today, - the best deal is again from dollar rental car.

Weekly Total

$93.98 $146.05

The price decline is why today the $10 bid succeeded & a month ago , it didn't.

The economy is in a recession.

Thanks again for your help & your site.

Mark
