    Reserve it, and periodically check back at the rates. They will go down the closer it gets to the actual dates. We just did this for a trip to Connecticut we took last weekend. First reserved the bar back in March for around $125 for 4 days. Ended up getting it for a tad over $50 about a week before the trip.

    Hotwire.com is useless for most things, but for car rentals its a goldmine

    I've had good luck w/ Kayak. Never tried hotwire, but I'm sure it's great too.

    Become a Costco member and use their rental car discounts.

    I think with Kayak you can enter in your various rental discounts. Could be wrong on that, though

    Make sure if the rental agreement says to fill up the gas when you bring it back you do. I worked at budget for a year and a half in high school and they charge almost double on gas costs.
