Slamming good car rental for June 13 - 20

So yes I waited until 2 weeks out to book a car and did my usual Kayak search as a starting point... led me to hotwire (which I have never used) and got a economy car for a week for less than $200 total! Unbelievable. This time it paid (no pun intended) to procrastinate. Donna

I have the 11th through 18th and a small SUV for $240. It's nice to get a good deal, huh?

Thanks for the reminder! I just checked rates again. Using Costco, I got a full size for $233 for 10 days in June (incl all taxes and fees). That saved me $63.

When I first booked in Jan, rates were $350. I changed rez several times as rates dropped.

My Hotwire deal in September 2011 was just $440 for 3 weeks or about $146.66 per week. But you do have to prepay.

TJ - that's pretty good, just under $21/day. I'm paying $23.30/day but don't need to prepay. To me, that's worth the extra $2/day. Plus Costco incl an extra driver for no fee. When I checked some of the pre-pay websites, another driver was more $$.

If I was willing to do a smaller car, it would have been substantially less (better gas mileage too!). But we're taking my 18 year old nephew. I wanted him to have a comfortable backseat and ensure we had sufficient luggage room in the trun for all 3 of us. We plan on doing a lot of driving around the island.

Yes, thanks for the reminder. I checked again today and saved $50 on my rental in Kona, and $90 on my rental on Maui! I always book through Costco, and was happy to save even more money!

Do you need to be a Costco member to get good rates?
