Nonsensical Pricing

13 of 14

Try this out for yourself on one of the car rental sites. Check
the price for a one-day rental. Then try a two-day rental; you’ll notice the
per-day price stays about the same. Do the same for a three- and four-day
rental and, like magic, watch the per-day price start to drop. By the time you
get to a weeklong rental, though, the per-day price has gone back up again.
Always check the price for a shorter and longer period than what you might need
to see if there is a significant difference in the cost per day. You may be
able to change your plans a bit and save a bundle.
