When I booked my flights last night, it showed me an offer for a rental car during the check out process. I don’t remember which car company. The price was something like $155/week. I wasn’t sure if this was good or bad. You would think getting bundled price would get you cheap prices. But I wanted to look up the prices to be sure! I considered opening another window on my machine into Orbitz to see what the cost of a rental car would be separately, but was concerned that having two sessions open would confuse the Orbitz software. That would be a pain since I was halfway through ordering my airline tickets! So I had my wife connect to Orbitz on her machine which is right next to mine. She looked up rental cars for the dates of our trip, and we found that we could get a rental car significantly cheaper from another rental car company separately. So I completed the process of getting our airline tickets. Then I went back to reserve a rental car. Alamo had the cheapest prices. What I found interesting was that a midsize car was actually cheaper than a compact car! I reserved the midsized car of course! It will actually come in handy back in Seattle.
