Cheap Car Rent Places

If you're planning a trip and need to book a rental car, there are several websites where you can find a cheap deal:


Using this website can help you save up to 40% on a rental car. Because Orbitz offers multiple types of comparison searches, you will want to:

  • Select the Car radio button on the left side of the page.
  • Enter where and when you'll pick up and drop off the car.
  • At this point, you can hit the blue Find button if you're ready to see what's available.
  • However, if you look below this button, you will see that there are several other options you can choose.

One of the additional options allows you to select a specific rental company. If you want Orbitz to search all companies for what cheap deals they have available, simply leave no preference selected. The other options allow you to select a specific type of car to search, if you want it to have air conditioning and what transmission option you want the car you select to feature. After you're happy with your search criteria, you can press Find. Orbitz will then return all the results that match your search criteria.

Car Rental Express

While this is a price comparison website, what makes it unique is CRX is solely focused on searching independent rental companies. Because it requires extra work to track independent companies' inventory, most large comparison sites only search what national rental companies are offering. While the large rental companies do offer a lot of attractive deals, independent companies can offer deals that are just attractive. It's actually not uncommon for independent agencies to offer lower prices than large companies. Another advantage of many independent companies is because they are smaller, they're able to offer better customer service than the larger companies.

Although it would take a lot of time to find, visit and search the website of each independent agency in the area you're planning to visit, Car Rental Express makes it possible to find all the best deals with just a single search. All you have to do to search is enter where you're going and when you're going there. If there's a specific type of car you want to rent, you can specify this before pressing the Search for Rates button.


Even though this site isn't as old as some of the other price comparison websites, Kayak has quickly become a leader in the industry. One of the reasons so many travelers use Kayak is not only can this site search multiple car rental companies, but it can also search other price comparison websites. After you click the Cars link and enter your destination, you will see an addition to the search box. This addition will allow you to select between 1 and 5 other price comparison sites to search. Once you make your selections, you can start your search. If you did choose to search any other comparison sites, these results will open in a separate window.
