Cheaper from Expedia (.ca) than Budget direct
I have an interesting rental coming up in HNL. I scoured my codes database (and those here) and couldn't come with anything for a standard on Budget.com for less than $360ish taxes incl. Expedia.ca (and only .ca - the .com and .co.uk/.de don't have this rate) had it for $245ish. It's a pre-paid rate, but fully refundable. Is this like a Hotwire-price rate with the benefit of refundability?
Anyone know what's the score? The only downside is no Fastbreak added to the rental, so I might have to stand in line; though the rental confirmation info said to hit the Fastbreak line anyway.
I'll make sure to check Expedia in the future -- it's not something I usually did, because they either were the same as Budget.com or way more expensive.
My guess would be you have to live in Canada to take advantage of these rates. Canadian dollar ration is different. As of today, $1.00 US dollar is to CA $1.01. They may want proof that you live there. Obviously you have to show a drivers license. I would careful on this one. You are right, you don't want any surprises at the check in counter.
Budget usually doesn't have a separate drop fee like the discounters but a higher daily rate. Please post questions like this in the general Other thread so more people can give you input. I recommend checking Hertz neighborhood stores in the Boston suburbs.
