BDL, Mid-size, $22.95 daily


Recommended Posts

This Hotwire car rental through Budget is better than anything I've previously got in New England during the prime leaf peepers season. 10-day rental -- 30 September - 10 October -- is $305.95, including all taxes and fees, $153 less than Budget wants through its own Web site. I've never used Priceline for car rental. Is it more advantageous than Hotwire?

In the past neither Priceline nor Hotwire were competitive in the Car Rental market. You could usually beat either of their rates thru the use of coupons, and if not, they were the same price as others. When price was the same users sooner booked direct since their reservations would be cancellable if plans changed.

However, in the last few days we've been seeing more car rental wins than ever before, so maybe Priceline and Hotwire are beginning to get competitive.

As well, many users here would be looking for short rental periods, so a $6 fee would add anywhere from $6 (for a one day rental) to $2 (for a three day rental) which ended up being significant. This fee still remains an obstacle for short rentals, but is not as significant for longer term rentals.

Thanks for sharing your own experience and win.

Congratulations on the savings.
