For the last year or so, my go-to car rental website has been carrentals.com.
That is until a couple of weeks ago.
I’d seen a few other bloggers mention using AutoSlash, so I decided to give them a try.
The biggest extra feature is that once you make a booking, they’ll continue to monitor the prices. If the price for your reservation drops, they’ll automatically rebook at the lower rate and then send you an email with your new (cheaper) booking.
I was looking for a car rental in Dallas. The rate at AutoSlash and CarRentals was the same, so I decided to book with AutoSlash.
Within an hour, I got an email saying that they’d found a rate $19 and change cheaper, and they automatically rebooked me.
I like that it saves me money.
And, I like that it saves me the time of checking around to see if there are any cheaper rentals available.
Last week, my dad was making a car rental reservation, and I suggested AutoSlash.
The exact same thing happened. Got an email that they found a reservation $20 less.
While I think AutoSlash is a great option for US rentals, I’ve found it isn’t so strong overseas. I think the reason is that there are other cheaper rental companies overseas, and a more comprehensive search is likely to reveal cheaper rates.
I wouldn’t book AutoSlash if their starting rate wasn’t lower, but if the rate was equal to what you were otherwise going to book, then I’d suggest you book with Autoslash in case they do find a better rate.
This is not a paid for post, nor was I compensated in any way by AutoSlash – just impressed with the product.
