So long time readers know that I am a huge fan of Autoslash. If you haven’t heard of Autoslash, it’s a site where you can enter in your car rental reservation. Then periodically over the next few days / weeks, Autoslash will check your reservation and very often will reply back with a reduced rate.
Last year, when we did our March Mayhem tool to determine the best travel tools out there, Autoslash came in at #2 – just behind #1 AwardWallet
Using Autoslash on my trip to Sacramento
I’ve had so much success with Autoslash that I don’t even really bother doing any type of searching for car rentals anymore. I just put my trip information into Autoslash and then just go with whatever they told me. For my upcoming trip to Sacramento, I had entered in my information into Autoslash.
Autoslash originally quote me $244.95, and then a few days later dropped the price nearly $10 (ok!)
Of course, keep in mind that for all these totals, our family has to multiply it by 2 because we’re a “2 car rental family”
Revisiting my car rental
So fast forward a few weeks and the trip was coming up. I realized that I wanted to change the booking dates for our rental car and keep the car for one extra day. I went out to Kayak and found…
A price $30 less! I’m not sure why Autoslash didn’t pick that up – perhaps it was due to it being a “manager’s special”. In any case, I ended up booking that car through Hertz, and when I went to pay, the price had dropped further, down to $197 total. The “manager’s special ended up being a Toyota Yaris and then that was the only one they had of that so our second car was a Toyota Camry
Readers – ever had an experience like that with Autoslash?
