Q: How can we score a good deal on a rental car?

Michele says...
Ask car rental agencies about free upgrade specials to get a little more car at a savings. Book as far in advance as possible, since prices tend to head north as demand picks up. Consider a combo package that includes flight, hotel and use of a car. They save you some dough. Finally, consider booking with independent car rental agencies—the ones that don’t have big, fat advertising budgets. The Canadian site carrentalexpress.com searches the indies for the best deal based on your criteria, and provides consumer ratings. Don’t forget to check to see if your CAA membership and credit card companies offer car rental discounts.
