I'm looking for a economy or compact car for the dates listed above.  I've bid on Priceline (through the BFT link) at a few different prices ranging from $15-25 and all have been rejected.  Obviously I don't really have much time left to bid.  Are there any tips on how I can get a lower price or am I just doomed to pay around $40-50 a day?

Please post the lowest available rates per day before taxes and fees for each of those car sizes for your dates. Please only check Hertz, Avis, National, Budget and Alamo since those are the rental car companies that Priceline uses for Name Your Own Price.

Please continue to bid through our link to Priceline and do not bid through a Priceline email.

If $40 is the lowest you've found, I'm afraid that Priceline won't be able to beat that rate based on Hotwire's rates in the low $40s. Seattle is a very tough place to bid for hotels and rental cars in the summer. Better luck next time. Priceline typically provides wonderful deals.

Was $40 from a non-participating rental car service? If so, I would just book that.

Found it through Payless. The fees are just ridiculous.

Rental car taxes are almost always expensive at airports, much higher than non-airport locations. It would be appreciated if you book through our Payless link which appears in the dropdown menu at the top of the righthand column.
