While we'd love nothing more than to be able to control the rates and make sure you get an affordable rental car every time, note that our system simply looks through over 1,000 coupons and discounts to find the best possible rates for your rental car. Other than identifying the best discounts, we don't have any control over what rates the rental companies set for their cars.
It's difficult to pinpoint any reason for the rates being high. Obviously, seasonal tourism often plays a big part (you're not the only one who wants to go to Florida in winter!), but there also could be a big convention in town or just a shrinkage in the number of cars the rental companies have available to rent. Hopefully, rates will go down sometime before you pick up, though--and that's what AutoSlash helps out with, since our tracking system checks rates every day and will alert you of any lower prices that may come along!
As well, please definitely do shop around! Our only goal is that you get the best deal on your rental car, even if it's not through us--so if you find a better price elsewhere, feel free to book it (just be careful of any cancellation fees on other sites). If you do book it on another site, though, be sure you come back and click here to submit it for price tracking so we can monitor the rate and let you know if the price goes down even further!
