Erin’s post talks about deals on car rental agency car relocations. Great idea if your travels fit those criteria.

I used a more normal route to save. Today I used a company called AutoSlash.com to book a car for my Canada trip and I saved a lot of money. I read about the website on a financial message board I read that has mostly savvy, well-to-do people who live good lives but save money, too. So I feel completely comfortable using the site.

Originally I booked directly with Alamo. The rental cost for one week for an intermediate-size car was $644 Canadian Dollars. Collision damage coverage which I’ll probably need (will check with my insurance) is $29.99/day. Ouch!

AutoSlash came up with a Hertz car booked through Priceline. Same location (airport), same size vehicle, free cancellation for only $345 Canadian. I booked it, no CC required. Collision damage waiver is a much more reasonable $11/day.
