J.J.’s Rental Car Tips
Hertz - United Rental Car: This is the best promo going on if the prices are competitive.
AutoSlash.com: search for good rates, but that’s not the coolest feature. Once you make a booking through ANY website (e.g., through the United link above or through Costco), then you can input that information and AutoSlash will continuously check to see if the rate comes down. It will notify you and have you re-book if it can save you money.
Save money and have peace of mind by paying with a card that has free primary collision coverage. Make sure you decline the coverage offered by the rental car company, because purchasing it will void the credit card coverage.
My top cards for primary coverage:
Chase Sapphire Preferred
Chase Sapphire Reserve
Chase United Explorer
Chase Ink Business Preferred (for business travel only)
