nice one mate. didn't realise about the airport car rental taxes. will bear that in mind when booking. appreciate it.
If you are booking a rental car, do not collect at SEA airport! Seattle has some crazy taxes on airport collection which increases the cost of the rental by 60-70%, when compared to collecting off-airport. Therefore, start the rental at a satellite office away from the airport, or downtown Seattle, and then specifiy return to the airport. For example I've just booked a full size car for 11 days with Hertz directly for £274, collecting the car downtown Seattle (Westlake) and returning to the SEA airport. The same car would have been £454 if I started the rental at SEA airport. It is a well known rip off if you google it. If you have an Amex use CDP 705500 for a further 10% off Hertz rentals. If found booking diect with Hertz cheaper than going through the numerous consolidators.
The fare is still alive.
So what? For that price I could go to Palma from Bristol 7 times. But that's not the same thing. Just like Yellowknife from Gatwick isn't the same thing. (ninja)
i have also booked now - great prices - cheers to the original poster
