Frugal Friday- Rental Car Momma

frugalfriday We have taken 2 trips lately where we have needed a rental car. And I don’t know if you have noticed but sometimes it would be cheaper to buy a car than rent one. When we went to Florida at Christmas we needed a minivan for a week. And we about choked when we saw the cost. It was almost a deal breaker for the trip.

The hubby came through with a discount through his work and got us a killer car rental deal. We got a minivan for a week and a half at 60% off anything we found at any “discount” internet portal. When we picked up the car from an unnamed car company, we were lamenting the cost of car rental to the guy behind the counter. He leans close and whispers to us, “You should check out Rental Car Momma.”

You have got to love a site called Rental Car Momma with a little old grandma at the top. And she delivers. When we went to Nashville for Blissdom, we needed a rental car so the hubby wouldn’t be stuck at the hotel the whole time. Did I mention I brought the hubby and Silas along? Made Blissdom much more Blissful :)

Anyway, she has all the major rental companies on there and her site is really easy to navigate. She saved us $100 on a 3 day car rental. Which was a real good thing since the food at Opryland was a bit on the pricey side. So thanks Rental Car Momma. Your white haired, granny self is da bomb!!
