    We use orbitz and normally most places are very applicable in their prices. When that is the case we go with Enterprise.

    I saved $16 a day in taxes and fees by riding the bus downtown ($2 each way) to pick up and drop off the car instead of picking it up at the airport.

    I can't help on who has the best prices, but I'd suggest an SUV over a truck as we're entering the wettest time of the year and having to stuff all your gear in the cab of a truck to keep it dry gets old real fast. To me having the extra dry storage space of an SUV would be worth any added price. Not to mention if you get to a camping spot late at night that is wet, you can have the back seat in the SUV folded down and sleep in the back.

Unless you are going to be off roaring a regular car would be fine for just the two of you. Last time we rented a car it was a truck and we rented for a week. Truck cost was $100 for the whole week and taxes came out to another $89 for the week. This was back in May before summer rates. In winter I've rented all size cars for around $8 a day but after taxes it came out to $20 a day. I use orbitz or kayak to price check. I also use my own insurance and not sure how that would work for you since your not an American. I also do the prepay gas.
    thansk so much for a quick answer. i dont know how it is whit insurance. thats why i still thinking whit what i would be better of whit.
