05 Jun Effortless rental car surveillance — getting exactly the rental car you want for less
You almost never know what your rental car will really cost — rental car companies are famous for mystery fees and extra charges — and frequently changing rates. Could you have gotten a better deal for the same car? Probably. Would it have taken more effort than you wanted? Probably.
There are lots of car rental consolidator sites to search but AutoSlash does something different — once you’ve booked, they’ll keep looking for better rates and instantly rebook you at a better rate if they find one!
I’m going to New Zealand at the end of the month an needed a car for five days in Queenstown. In AutoSlash, I simply entered my information and within a few minutes, they returned a quote to me by e-mail (ignore the Sixt results if they return – always ask the system for more). The system is a little manual but it’s worth it in the end.
When you receive the quotes, the lowest total price – all taxes and fees included – in each category is always highlighted in yellow.
Once you pick a suitable car, simply complete the reservation and you’ll be sent both an AutoSlash confirmation and confirmation from your rental car company.
After putting my initial Queenstown reservation in TripIt, I promptly forgot about it. Until I got this e-mail!
Thanks for booking with AutoSlash. We review each reservation daily for additional savings. We found a better rate on your upcoming Hertz rental in Queenstown on 7/1/2016
You were originally booked at $183.30 USD, and the price has now dropped to $142.31 USD. We’ve automatically re-booked your rental at the lower rate. You’ve saved $40.99 USD without even lifting a finger!
Note that your rental confirmation number has changed. Your new Hertz confirmation number is XXX. Please provide this new number to the agent when picking up your rental to ensure you receive the correct rate.
If you don’t have the latest confirmation number with you at pickup, the agent can look up your reservation by your name. If you haven’t received an updated confirmation, check your spam folder before contacting us, as emails are sometimes mistakenly classified as spam.
We’ll continue to track your rental rate daily, and if we find additional savings, we’ll be in touch. You can view, change or cancel your reservation by clicking here.
We automatically slash your rental rates!
What’s great about AutoSlash is that they take advantage of all the discount options out there – including ones you might never know about. I booked another car today for different location and when I looked at the confirmation, I realized that they’d taken advantage of a discount being run by FlyingBlue that I would have never known about. They use public offers, it just saves you a ton of searching.
And if you already have a rental car reservation, just give them the confirmation number and they’ll let you know if something better comes along. Always get the best rental car rate and know exactly what you’re paying – — you can’t lose!
