One thing I’ve learned blogging is that tips I think people just “know” about travel need to be brought up from time to time. Today I’m giving a shout-out to a gem of a site: AutoSlash. AutoSlash is built on a very simple idea: Car Rental prices change constantly, and the only way you know you’re getting the best price is to check them constantly. AutoSlash does it for you! You just input your confirmation number and AutoSlash emails you if there’s a match…and there usually is.
A few weeks ago I put a rental in for $149 (and this was from Costco, after research). Less than an hour later I got an alert: $133. Same car class, same cancellation. And you’re booking direct with the Car Rental Company so your status benefits are still valid. Genius! And they’ll keep looking up to the time you pick up your car. In fact, the morning of pickup, my car price went down again, to $111, and since it was with the same company AutoSlash even handled the booking.
What’s your best AutoSlash savings? Please share in the comments.
