Looking for inexpensive car rental in Santa Rosa

We are arriving at the airport on 05/25/11 and departing 06/01/11. The rental car rates I am finding out of the airport are as much as our airfare! I have checked all the traditional websites and found that Enterprise rates off site are slightly cheaper. So I have a couple of questions:

1. Does anyone know if Enterprise or anyone else will deliver to the airport when there is an Enterprise in the airport?

2. Does anyone know of an inexpensive way to rent a car (if we taxi to a car rental place, we might as well pay more for the rental).

So far, the cheapest rate I can find is $209 for a standard car for the week, offsite at an Enterprise.

I appreciate the help!

Well, I don't know about those quoted costs..but my sister always uses Priceline for her car rentals and saves an average of 40% on her costs.

If you have AAA or the equivalent they offer some discounts as well.

I suspect that part of your high cost is the holiday weekend that comes into play....!

I always use Priceline or Hotwire.

Thank you for the help everyone! The airport site is vastly more expensive than off-site. But I found this great site where you request a deal and they send you the link. Got an SUV for $179 a week (after all taxes and fees). Screaming deal! www.thedealblog.com
