TIP - Car Rental Gold Coast saved $500.

24 March 2009

I am going to the gold coast again next month. This time for three weeks. Most of my other trips had been for 2 weeks and car rental was around $500 for the trip. Imagine my shock when the lowest quotes I was getting were $1250+++++ I consider myself to be pretty good at sniffing out travel bargains and I exhausted all of my entertainment book options. I checked the other car rental consolidators on buckscoop and the prices were even higher. We are talking about the cheapest possible car here, not a fancy one. I went to travel.com.au on a last ditch effort. I was very pleased to get my car for $750 for the three weeks. It is a small automatic with aircon. So if you are looking for a car, you might consider getting a quote from travel.com.au. I had to prepay, which for me is not a problem.

    Damn, could have saved another $170.... It would have involved some sort of airport pick up and drop off which i don;t think i am too keen on, but for $170....... You have to go to the Hot deals section of the website or you don;t get a voucher box and you get a quote of $800.
