I’m always on the look-out for deals on car hire, as it can often be a significant chunk of my overall trip cost when travelling on business. I tend to try both Hertz and Avis on most occasions due to having status in their loyalty programs, but will often check other services should they be more convenient location-wise. Last resort is to look at including the car hire in with flight or hotel bookings (e.g. with BA Holidays), but this tends to write-off any points or status with the car hire company themselves.
