My wife and I are taking a trip to Destin in the beginning of September. I have begun looking at rental car rates online and was a bit surprised as to how expensive they have gotten. I am looking at renting a car for 6 days and the cheapest rate I can find is like $350.00 (includes tax). Is this the going rate these days? That rate is for a typical smaller compact car, which is all I need.
Is it beneficial to book a car rental early or wait until a week or two before?
I have already looked on the major websites (travelocity, kayak, priceline, etc). Are there any other sites or resources out there that might be cheaper??
