e.g. While booking a weekend car rental last year, I stumbled upon an online rate for Hertz car rental for $19 per day (usually $70+ per day in the NYC metro area). I thought it must surely be a mistake but I went ahead and block booked every weekend from September until June (when the rate changed back to $70+). I have been enjoying super cheap rentals for the last six months. When I don’t need the car, I just cancel but I pick up the car most weekends because it’s so cheap. I also extended the rental for 2 weeks @ $19 per day over Christmas / New Year.
Since I'm renting so frequently I have Hertz Gold Five Star Status which gives me discounts, free upgrades and more points per rental.
When you find a deal – Carpe Diem – Seize the day!
