So...we are in the final planning stages of our trip home...which means, we are locking down hotels and rental cars and getting rides from various places to other places. I am now down to the last leg of our trip and have a need for some advice.
Has anyone ever used Priceline when renting a car????
I have been going through different sites, all touting to have "the lowest car rental fees" for our vacation. We will be in Los Angeles and San Diego for the last part of our trip and have figured that, to save time and money, renting a car from LAX would just be more economical.
Now, Priceline has a deal where you can "name your price". While most of the companies are charging an average of $65-75 a day for just your basic, everyday,economy-boring(zzzzzzzzz)style car....I ventured into Priceline's "name your price" area and played around a bit.
While I found that $15 a day was "not high enough to be accepted"....$21 a day was OKAY! "*Holy moly, Batman*!!", says I...."that's almost half of what the other sites are offering!!"
*That's not really what I said....it was waaaaay more colorful...but...I'm practicing a cleaner vocabulary for our trip home!! You're welcome, Mom!*
And so...my question....
Have any of you ever used this "name your price" system when renting a car?!?!
Your input on this topic would be greatly appreciated...you'd have my love and never ending gratitude...for a really long time!
