I need a rental for 15 days in June, picking up and dropping off at KOA. The quote from discount is $310 base rate, with all taxes and fees $467. That comes out to just under $21/day.
I've seen others with winning bids from KOA for $15/day or so. I'm thinking that might not include the additional driver (spouse), in which case it may not really be much lower. Is that the case?
The other option is that I've got enough miles on my rewards card to get the rental for free. I kind of hate to do that though, since I could use them for something more expensive (like a RT ticket to Hawaii at some point, which may be $900 or so) down the road. If you use reward miles to book a car, do you still have to pay all the taxes/fees anyway? In that case I definitely don't want to use reward miles.
