I’m not 100% positive what the best place to find a rental car is (like with airfares, it’s smart to check multiple sites and tools), but at this point I’m pretty sure it’s Costco Travel (if you’re a member). I first started booking cars via Costco Travel after I was told to check it out by a car rental agent. (While picking up a rental car, I started asking her where she booked her own rental cars, and Costco Travel was her answer.) I’ve been using it ever since. I always compare prices with the car rental agency websites, AutoSlash and RentalCars.com before booking, and Costco Travel has been the winner every time. As an added bonus, it doesn’t charge an additional driver fee.
As I’ve written before, Costco Travel is also a great place to save on luxury hotels, cruises and more.
