Here is the BEST rates you are going to find.
STEP 1. Register for USAA. Its free, you dont need to pay anything, and you do not need to be part of the military to join. (they will ask you for your social security #…)
STEP 2. Register for Enterprise.com with ALL your info (including your licence).
STEP 3. Open a new page with with Enterprise to start a car rental.
STEP 4. Type or paste this code in the last box asking for a promotion code: ALNCGEN hit continue and type in USA to get logged in as a USAA member.
This will provide you with the following benefits for FREE!:
No Additional Driver Fees for spouses and USAA member drivers
(A non-USAA rental is typically $10 per day.
Fee Waived for 21 to 24 year olds. Typically up to $30 per day.
Coverage included with a USAA rental:
- $25,000 bodily injury or death per person or the applicable state minimum, whichever is greater
- $50,000 bodily injury or death per accident or the applicable state minimum, whichever is greater
- $10,000 property damage or the applicable state minimum, whichever is greater
Loss of Use: Waived
Loss or Damage to Rental Vehicle: The member is responsible for the first $5,000 of damage to a rental vehicle. This may be covered by insurance. (use your american express to book for free coverage as well)
STEP 5. Now here is where it gets a little sticky. Once you have everything set up, go to kayak.com and search for a rental in the places you need.
NOTE: Make sure you select Pick-Up and Drop-Off time at Noon as this will effect the price greatly!
STEP 6. Select the booking option that has enterprise name on it, but make sure you choose the option to book on enterprise and NOT on kayak (This mistake can cost you $27 a day!)
STEP 7. Change the times in the enterprise window to when you need to pick-up and drop-off (the total may jump a few dollars, but not as much as booking directly from kayak for those times).
STEP 8. Hit CONFIRM.
STEP 9. Go pick-up the car and drag race your buddies who are paying way more than you!
