Travel Tuesday: Rental Cars
The next step was the rental car. I am a FIRM believer in priceline for rental cars. I have NO loyalty to any particular rental company and all I want is a Nissan Versa P.O.S to drive around while I am out there.
So I lowball priceline. Rejected. Next day they send me the usual “it has been 24 hours since your last bid” email and I bid again. $1 over my first lowball offer. No such luck. But then I have hooked THEM. They say, if you would just raise your price by a few more dollars, you win a car. And since a few more dollars over the next few days is what is going to happen anyway, I just take the offer priceline gave me. And end up with Budget and a Versa (or similar) P.O.S.
Let’s hear it for happy endings.
