Did someone say road trip? Gather the gang and head off to a nearby state park, national park or scenic drive. (Here are the most scenic drives in every state!)
Need a bigger vehicle to seat everyone comfortably? Get a wheel deal from AutoSlash.
Here’s Clark’s take on the website: “AutoSlash did indeed give us the best quote, almost 5% less than the next cheapest option and a whopping 22% less than the average of the other four quotes! Though it’s not one of the biggest names in the car rental reservations business, AutoSlash should be a part of your travel-booking arsenal.”
Here’s how to score a low price every time. Get a quote from AutoSlash early on, and then ask AutoSlash to track your reservation. They’ll continue to track your existing reservation for price drops, so if a better deal comes along you can cancel and rebook to save money. And, it’s completely free to use.
The website also has a useful Coupons section that compiles all of the best deals currently on offer — including bundled deals of up to 30% off when ticketed with your favorite airline.
Another bonus for drivers under the age of 25: Young renter fees charged by rental car companies are a constant source of frustration and can push your rates sky-high and as much as from $15 to $57 per day. AutoSlash has your back and will help to easily avoid these fees and make sure you don’t overpay for a rental car.
Autoslash shares the secret to never waiting in another rental car line:
If you’re picking up a rental car at a major airport location, nearly every major rental car company lets you bypass the line if you join its free rewards program. Some programs, like Avis Preferred, National’s Emerald Club or Hertz Ultimate Choice even let you choose your own vehicle. With these programs, when you reserve an intermediate (midsize) car at an airport, you can end up driving something much nicer and roomier.
