Kauai Car rental

Not a question, but I just returned from Kauai, where I rented a car from Discount Hawaii Car Rentals. I discovered this company on TripAdvisor; this was the first time I'd rented from them. I heartily recommend them. I was able to arrive earlier than expected, but I called, and the selected company (Enterprise) had a car ready. I've just booked another trip to Kauai for April and have again reserved with Discount Hawaii Car Rentals. The quoted price is about $150 less for a week than what I was seeing on other sites (this will be with Avis). So it's all good!

I actually got a better price by booking through the Hawaiian Airlines website. I clicked twice on the Budget link and it automatically put in a discount code. I have checked back several times with DHCR and their price is always at least $50 more than what I got through the HA site by double clicking on the Budget button. I read that tip on TA. Have any of you ever done this?

I just did a search for a rental in June, and it seems high. (with DHCR) It's actually cheaper directly with Thrifty, thought not by much. Is it too early to book this- will the price drop? It seems much higher than what I paid last year. It's showing about $400 for 12 days.

Book *something* as long as you don't have to provide a credit card. Then you'll have backup while you look for a better deal.
