Pros:After trying several rental car companies directly without success, Kayak was able to get me several options for my trip. It seems that rental car companies are not overly excited to rent cars for one way, day trips. I needed to travel 200 miles, one way, to pick up my new car. Kayak was able to find cheap rentals with major companies that I just couldn't get directly. Thanks Kayak!Cons:You should have been there earlier! Oh, wait, no that was my fault. Next time I know where I will check first.Reviewed 13 Nov 2019
