Amazing Deal? $51.00 Total Car Rental For Nine Days AND 5,000 Hilton Honors Points

For slightly less than $51.00 total — including all taxes and fees — you can rent a car for nine days and possibly earn 5,000 Hilton Honors points in the process.

Stupid Tip of the Day: Have Vehicle Damage Officially Recorded Before Leaving the Rental Car Facility

“It really only takes under 1 minute to video around the car and zoom in on anything that you may be charged for after the fact when a rental company says ‘you’ did this to the car. The only mistake I made was not panning the camera up to show I was still at the airport and the slot the car was in (will make sure I do that next time).”
