Finding the Best Car Rental Deals

Whether you are shopping for airfare, hotels, or rental cars, there is no one site that always has the best travel deals. If you “search one and done” that is fine, but you are probably leaving money on the table more often than not. In my travels this is especially true when you are searching for a rental car as the price simply varies wildly depending on when and where you shop.   I have a few trips coming up where we…

Review of Awesome Car Service on Maui

I think I’ve just about finished my planned posts on our most recent trip to Maui, which are all linked at the end of this post, but there is one big Maui tip I haven’t yet worked in anywhere and don’t want to miss. Because of the very long travel day and the reality that we were going to land in Maui around 11PM local arrival time (4AM Central), we decided to skip renting a car the first night and instead just…

How to Enter a Silvercar Referral Code and Earn $25 After First Rental!

My favorite rental car experiences in recent years have all been with Silvercar and their all-Audi fleet. I used them most recently on a one day trip to Austin I took last month that I with just my toddler in tow. Having Silvercar pick us up and drop us off at the airport terminal, provide a good complimentary car seat, and not charge outrageous prices for tolls and gas made the experience so much easier than it could have been with a…

One-Way Hertz Rentals From $9.99 to Florida and Atlanta!

While I often fly to get from Point A to Point B as quickly as possible, there is something special and iconic about a leisurely road trip where you can sightsee, stop, and explore at will. I personally love the idea of a true one-way road trip where the point can really be to enjoy the journey without having to double back to turn in the car. The biggest problem with that one-way road trip strategy is, as I bet you…

Earn 11,500 Bonus United Miles on Two Hertz Rentals (Targeted)

Back in the long ago times of the US Airways Grand Slam I remember multiple visits to the local Hertz car rental agency to rent a car solely to earn the related bonus airline miles. It got to the point where we didn’t even have to actually take the car we rented anywhere since we got to know the staff so well. If that sounds crazy, it totally is. But, it was also well worth it as the miles we were earning were…

Hi Ho Silver(Car)!

This is a guest post from my dad, Grandpa Points. He and my mom are in their mid-60’s, are (mostly) retired, and are ticking off “bucket list” destinations quicker than they ever thought possible thanks to miles, points, and travel deals. They have an intense love of this country, of its National Parks and treasures, and have no problem with a clean budget hotel room and an economy airline seat on a budget airline as long as it gets them…
