Wow! Yes I imagine these prices hurt for you!
We've always been in the 200 range for our trips that are typically 9 or 10 days. I was sure I was going to see something lower than this 250 but it's not looking like it.

Yeah, sometimes it almost feels like they are paying me to drive their cars. LOL Not this time though. They are making up for all those past great deals on just this trip alone!

I went back and checked my e-mails from last year to figure out when the prices went down. I had a 12 night rental from National for about $350 until 10 days before departure. At that point, I got the same rental for $222.00 (including a 35$ off coupon).

For giggles, I checked last night for a rental 10 days from now (+ and - a few days). Same exact price that I'm getting for next month. $350 for 12 nights whether it's in 2 days, 9 days, 10 days or 28 days. No discounts at all!

What is really sad is that the price of our Southwest flight for a week from today came down today. That's almost unheard of! But, the price of the rental car, still stuck at HIGH.

Yup, we got the credit (not refund as I always book the "cheap seats"). That was the third time that I've snagged a price drop on that flight. And I haven't even been that good at checking for price changes.

Now we just have to book another flight to somewhere to be able to use the credits.

Yes I got my refund in the form of a credit. I think its SWA way to get us to book future flights.
