(Since this can be a matter of opinion, I assume this belongs in IMHO rather than MPSIMS)
I am working on my summer travel plans (yes, “already”), and want to rent a car for two days. When I went to various rental car sites and looked up prices for mid-June (I have Alamo, Enterprise, and National in mind, mainly because I can get a $40 discount through Discover Rewards), I got a price of about $150 for the two days. However, for two days (the same days of the week) at the end of January, it was $75, and for the end of February, it was $90.
How long should I put off making a rental car reservation? Is there a point where it will start to go back up again because it’s too close to the pickup date?
