Similar quote from Avis on a Corp rate.I've noticed that rates are coming down and a sense that normality is not far off. I think that once confidence in international travel grows (ie fewer people travel domestically) reasonable rates will return. Until then, look at this cough from Europcar:

To be fair, the others are offering in the $700-$850 range. But even that's too high IMO.

On the basis that I can actually get a car now, I'd say the fleets are being restocked. The speed is indeterminable and yes they're not immune to those forces plaguing the car industry. That's the supply side.Keep in mind the reason for high prices is nothing to do with people coming back to travel, but the fact that they sold off lots of cars during the pandemic........ and it's difficult to replace due to the chip shortage.

I do find EC can throw up some really whacky numbers if not logged in or no offer code/promo number. Almost as if to scare off the occasional renter?
my experience is Autoslash dont include the extra cost for 'insurance' CDW etc that we foreigners require in USA, becuase locals are usually covered with their house insurance.Autoslash is worth using. Once you've made your booking, put the details into their booking monitoring service. It saved me $800 on a recent US rental.
I always have a standalone policy anyway so one thing you want to do is exclude insurances.Rental prices dropping significantly in UK/Ireland for July 2022 in recent weeks. definitely pays to book a free cancel one and keep checking.
