You know, we all try to shortcut any way we can. I was recently looking at travel websites to find deals for my vacation and got curious when the one site I usually use had good flight rates, then when I tried combining car with flight, the flight itself costed more, before addig the price of rental car! So I tried again, sure enough, the flight was 10 bucks more before car rental cost. What?
So I tried a couple of other destinations from my home airport, same dates, and one of them was 40 bucks higher with car rental...which was an additional 150 bucks alone. What's up with that? Are we really saving? I tried again using different dates and locations, again, the flight costs more with the car rental than without. Aren't we supposed to save when we combine or is that just another lure to some unsuspecting travelers?
