Will AutoSlash Save You Money on Car Rentals?

Last year, I wrote about the best ways to save money on car rentals.  At the time, 1 of the best tools to use was AutoSlash.  But they stopped working (properly) after a while.

But now, folks report that AutoSlash is back.  AutoSlash will track your car rental reservations for price drops, and re-book you at the lower rate if your rental becomes cheaper.

They’ll watch reservations made with most major car rental agencies.  And if you booked your car through AutoSlash, they’ll monitor your reservation automatically.
