After a slow start this year, the car rental companies have finally started to roll out some pretty decent discounts and AAdvantage bonus offers.

Avis is the leader in the clubhouse: whether you’re renting one day or a week they have the offer that will earn you the most miles.  But that doesn’t mean that the other offers aren’t worth examining.

If you’re not on an expense account or if you like to minimize your cost per mile, then it doesn’t hurt to price some of the other offers; even with a smaller bonus, depending upon the discount, the market, and when you’re renting, they may yield a lower CPM.

I actually put together a spreadsheet so that I could compare them at a glance (here’s a link if you’re interested).

Here’s how they compare with a 1 to 4 day rental:

AAdvantage 1-4 Day Car Rental Bonus Offer

 

And this is how they compare with a 5 to 7 day rental period:

AAdvantage 5-7 Day Car Rental Bonus Offer

 

Here’s a summary of the latest offers:
