How many coupons/discounts can I compare?
You may compare up to 5 items for each quote. This can be for one agency or for five different agencies. To compare five additional codes just remove the five selected, select five more then click the search button. Your search will open in a new tab.

I found a cheaper rate for my rental, what should I do?
Book it straight away as prices can change frequently. Cancel your previous reservation only after your new reservation is confirmed. There are no penalties or fees for canceling or modifying reservations.

Why should I book through you and not the rental agency directly?
We use a pass through system that passes your reservation directly to the rental agency. So it is almost like a direct booking but you get additional benefits. We provide expert customer support and a 'voice' on your side if you ever have any issues or questions with no cost to you. In addition, booking through us allows us to develop and manage tools like this that can save you time and money.

Frequent renter numbers are passed from your profile directly into your booking when you book on the My Coupons page. No other information is currently passed through.
