The following is a sponsored post provided by AutoSlash. I personally heard of AutoSlash before they contacted me and have seen for myself that they save money! Whenever you book a car rental, I recommend going to AutoSlash as well.
What if I told you that you could save 30% off every car rental? Would it sound too good to be true?
Well it’s not!
Have you heard of this awesome website called AutoSlash? It’s a site where you can book a car rental except it’s way cheaper than booking on the rental company websites or through other online travel sites.
The reason it’s cheaper is that AutoSlash has special algorithms quickly figure out the best publicly available coupons and discount codes that apply to any rental. Their proprietary system then test each one to figure out which combinations yield the lowest price possible They also take into consideration memberships that you may be a part of like Costco, AAA, AARP and many others, saving you time from having to find and apply their codes or book through their portals.
And then – get this! – they keep searching for better rates until the day you pick up the car. Car rental companies adjust their prices all the time. AutoSlash is constantly on the lookout for lower rates. When they spot a better deal, they’ll alert you so that you can rebook to lock in the savings. It’s like price protection for your rental. This works for rental cars because you don’t have to give a credit card to book – you can cancel or change your reservation as many times as you want.
If you already have a reservation coming up, they can track your existing rental. They’ll probably find discounts right away and email you links to rebook your car. Or it might take them a few days or weeks to find a better discount. According to AutoSlash, the earlier you book, the more likely you are to save – it allows their tracker to work its magic!
AutoSlash might at first feel unnatural because they ask for your email address and don’t show you rates right away. Maybe you’re used to just searching on Travelocity and seeing rates pop up. AutoSlash asks for your email because it takes their algorithm a little while to find the best rates. Sometimes they even give each quote a little personal attention. They usually send the rates to your inbox within about 30 minutes and then you can book your discounted car! To book the car, AutoSlash will take you to Priceline.com where you’ll be shown special rates that you wouldn’t otherwise find if you just went to Priceline on your own.
AutoSlash has a lot of really positive reviews from customers online. Many of them show just how much people can save with the website. Here’s some of the examples that blew us away!
There’s one more thing we gotta mention: AutoSlash is free. It’s FREE!!! How?! AutoSlash gets a small commission for each booking. It is their mission to save rental car customers money and they save customers millions of dollars per year.
Give it a try and comment below. If you book with this special link before or on 4/30/2018, you are entered into a chance to win a $100 Amazon Gift card. If you’re reading this on or after 5/1/2018, you can book at AutoSlash.com and hopefully get a super cheap rate!
Then come back and tell us: how much did you save?
Good morning Michelle,
My personal belief is where there’s a will, there’s a way. Most car rental places will not tell you how to save money on car rentals. Reason being is because car rental agents possibly earn commissions when they sell car rentals to customers. I’m pretty confident there’s a secret discount button somewhere someone can push to help customers cut down on daily rental costs. But I’m quite confident also that they wouldn’t share that information with customers because 9 times out of 10, they probably would be losing out on major commissions if they earn them per sale.
I’ve never heard of this website you just mentioned called Autoslash. I knew of Travelocity and Booking where is you can order your travel online. Back in my Florida days in South Florida in Broward County back in 2000, I worked at a call center near Sawgrass Mills Mall in the city of Plantation. We handled major calls for the Priceline.com account. while I can’t quite recall if customers inquired about making car rentals on the site, they certainly inquired about changing their travel times in which that was impossible because Priceline allows you to name your own price, we were unable to make any changes in the WorldSpan Airline system we had at the time operating on our computers.
I think this Autoslash website you just mentioned will be highly successful because not only can It help people save money on car rentals, but they can also offer affiliate the opportunity to make money by promoting Autoslash online car rentals on blogs and websites and offer affiliates a “commission” when they make a “sale.” This is why I love affiliate marketing, blogging, and “side hustles.” There’s unlimited potential online for anyone who puts their mind to making good use of internet marketing to earn a full-time income like yourself.
Thank you for letting us know of this wonderful Autoslash program Michelle. 🙂
Will have to check this out next time we book a trip. I’m always looking for ways to save on travel.

Excellent article on one more way to bring costs down when traveling. It’s helpful that you spell out how the site gets paid, so we can see it’s a legitimate business. It sounds a bit similar to Hotwire, which I’ve used sometimes to get good rates for expensive hotels, and they’re cheapest when you don’t know the name of the hotel you’re booking. (They give you the area of town, and the number of stars in addition to some other details, but you don’t get the name until you book it.)

For car rental, I normally used the Name Your Own Price option at Priceline. It works well and I get the type of car I want. Don’t really care about the specific car make/model as long as it is reliable for my road trip.
I haven’t heard about Autoslash so will have to check it out on our next trip. Oddly it uses Priceline as well. Thanks for the recommendation Michelle!
We do direct our customers to 3rd party sites like Priceline to book, but the great thing about going through AutoSlash is that you don’t have to prepay your rental when using Priceline. The deals we offer are all pay-later (meaning you pay when you get to the rental counter).
We look forward to saving you money on your rental!
I love Autoslash – I just wrote an article on a year long full size SUV rental – the savings were unreal – check it out: https://www.theartoftravelhacking.com/a-year-of-tracking-autoslash/
