I'm looking to find some reasonable car rental rates on 22 November for 4 days. The cheapest I've found is over 100 USD per day using kayak. Is this normal for NYC?. I only need a small car...


I don't know how you're using it, but when I run a Kayak query from the airport, I get about $47 a day.

I've run the query for your convenience.

However, remember that you're looking to pick up on THANKSGIVING. As this is a public holiday and the start of a long weekend, it's highly likely you'll pay extra charges or that rentals will be in demand as people return home to their families or travel for the long weekend.

  • Thanks Mark, i get 106 dollars for the same car that your search gives as you say $47.I am running the query from australia perhaps some sort of geo tagging is happening – peter Nov 4 '11 at 3:29
  • So if you run my search, it shows $47? Or $106? That's just weird if it's $106... – Mark Mayo Nov 4 '11 at 3:30

    No worries, glad to save a fellow traveller some cash! If you can accept the answer, that'd be fantastic ;) – Mark Mayo Nov 4 '11 at 11:01
  • when run in UK it defaults to GBP, so the difference might be in exchange rates(from Aus it was Aus dollars, would that explain it). I have always used thrifty (in us,uk, and Aus) for car rental btw. – NimChimpsky Nov 7 '11 at 14:08
