A few weeks ago I shared a great car rental deal from Hertz for $13.49/day. Based on the comments, many people were able to utilize this cheap rate and actually save money based on already reserved reservations. While browsing around the Budget site, I was actually able to find a comparable deal to the Hertz one I shared, if not better.
For an economy or compact car, you can get $15/day (for weekend rentals) or $119/week. For an intermediate SUV, you can get $22/day (for weekend rentals) or $139/week. Similar to the Hertz discount, this is only available for participating airport locations and is valid for rentals through June 15, 2013. A weekly rate requires a minimum of 5 consecutive days (with a 14 day maximum), and a weekend rental starts at noon on Thursday and the car must be returned by Monday at 11:59pm. For a Thursday and Friday pick up, a Friday night overnight stay is required. There are some additional terms, so make sure to look through the Budget site to review the blackout dates for certain cities, along with non-participating locations.
Go to this budget site to reserve your car and make sure BCD code D454300 for the economy/compact car or D454301 for the SUV car. The great thing about this discount is it will also let you combine a coupon code with it as well. So here are some coupon codes to use depending on which one saves you the most money:
- TUGZ003 – One free day on a weekend rental
- MUGZ022 – $30 off a weekly rental (must include Saturday night)
- UUGZ039 – Free upgrade on a compact through full size rental
- MUGZ071 – $10 off a 2-day weekend rental
- MUGZ072 – $15 off a 3-day weekend rental
- MUGZ073 – $20 off a 4-day weekend rental
Since a free day on a weekend rental is worth $15, you are better off using that coupon code unless you have a 4-day rental. However, if your goal is to get a bigger car for cheaper, the free upgrade coupon code is always valuable too.
Also remember that if you book your car rental through a cash back site and earn some money back or points/miles depending on the one you select. You can get 3.5% back with Topcashback.com, 3% back with Big Crumbs, and 2 points/$ with Chase Ultimate Rewards. Enjoy!
