Autoslash: How to Save $110 in 10 Minutes
I’ve known about AutoSlash.com, a service that checks constantly for lower rental car rates, for awhile, but had fallen out of the habit of using them, especially while I had elite status with Avis. I usually just make a reservation and then, if I think about it, check a few days before to see if it’s dropped and it often has.
But after reading View From The Wing’s reminder a few days ago to Always Enter Your Car Rental Confirmation Numbers into Autoslash for Savings, I realized I should probably do that for some of my upcoming trips.
So I entered my existing confirmation numbers on their site, and not 10 minutes later I had an email in my inbox telling me they’d found a lower rate.
Quite a bit lower! My National reservation for 3 days had been $184, the lowest I’d seen on Hotwire was $125, they’d found Avis for $74!
I had been willing to pay a little bit more for National because I’d have access to the executive aisle and because it would count towards their one two free promo, but saving $100 (I ultimately went with a full size car for $85) outweighed both those benefits. And there’s even a chance they’ll find a lower rate in the next week and automatically rebook me!
I might have found this savings myself in my usual day-before-double-check, but it’s a crazy busy week and I might have just been resigned to the higher price because I didn’t have time.
Many thanks to View From The Wing for his reminder and to Autoslash for making it so painless to save money! If you haven’t checked them out, it’s definitely worth it.
