How to get the best price on a rental car

My sister s destination wedding is taking place in a few weeks and until last night we still hadn t nailed down which car rental company we were going to use. But at about 10:30 pm last night we pulled the trigger and finalized our rental car plans.
I should also mention that while I know there is a skill to be learned when it comes to getting travel deals, I am not particularly skilled in this area. I generally know how to find good prices on most things I buy, but renting cars is something I haven t had to do too much of.
What we were looking for in a rental car
So, I started comparing prices just like I normally do and was getting ready to start digging for some coupon codes to see if I could find a little better price and then it happened I found noticed that Hotwire had a Hot Rate deal for the car we were looking for. After seeing the prices of all the other car rental car websites, it just didn t make sense that they were about half the average price of the others.
I called them up to see what the catch was. They explained that the only catch is that I don t know which rental car company we will be with until after we pay. That s it? I verified that I would still be able to pick it up and return it in our airport and that we would have unlimited miles. So, with that price, I decided our bargain hunting was finished and would take it.
