  1. fantastic timing, I’m renting a car for personal use for an upcoming trip. thank you!!

  2. Serious? We have way too many amatuer travel “experts”. This is a DEAL ALERT?

      Mike – I’m a deal hunter, not a travel “expert.”

      I share deals with my readers. To me, this is a much better deal than the “100 free Hyatt points” offer that was featured on One Mile at a Time this morning – and I’m sure you would agree that Lucky is a real travel “expert.” 100 Hyatt points are worth less than $2!

      Am I glad he shared the news? Absolutely!
      Am I excited about 100 Hyatt points? Not so much.
      Am I going to comment on his blog, annoyed at the value of the deal? Of course not. And I notice that neither did you. 😉

    • Really Mike? Some of us appreciate the money saving deals and tips. not all of us have such deep pockets.

  3. One word of caution – I did one of these one time and they made you use a special AWD code. That code ended up making the cars and locations I was looking at MORE expensive than without the AWD! Not sure if that is the case this time or not. The good news is that you get your money back as credit if you can’t use it. Thanks!

      Charlie – Thanks for the cautionary note. It’s always a good idea to double check rates to make sure that you are getting the best deal out there!
