Is this new - Priceline name your own price car rentals taxes & fees much higher than normal rental? Just completed a car rental via name your own price, made the mistake of not pre checking prices, and bid $7 for a four day rental, with $48 in taxes & fees. Once my bid was accepted noted that $17/day rental on Priceline where much cheaper because the taxes and fees were only $9! My fault for not comparing the total price to the market rate, but it irks me... I guess this time Priceline will make an extra $15 off me. Historically I have not noticed this. A low daily bid rate generally ended up beating out the price of a traditional rental. So does this sound familiar? Is it new?
