We are flying into San Fran on Thursday August 1st and plan on renting a car on Saturday August 3rd and driving down the coast to San Diego. When I first starting looking at prices a couple of weeks ago, a price for a mid size SUV for 7 days was $86/day. I discussed this with my husband and after much going back and forth we decided it best to rent a minivan as there are two adults and our 2 (young adult) children and suitcases traveling. We plan on picking car up in Union Square area where we are staying and dropping off at San Diego Airport. So our next thought was to rent the minivan until we arrive in San Diego on Wed. August 7th and down grade to smaller/less in expensive midsize SUV for the remaining days.
Problem, looking on line right now prices seem to be more than doubled on Kayak and sites like them.
Am I doing something wrong? Did I wait to long to book?
Would appreciate any suggestions/info etc.
Thank you again,
