    My 2018 rentals are also low - but new searches (checked every couple of days) these same rentals are 50% and greater.

    Have you looked at what they are now?

    I have a convertible (17 days in June: LIH) for $941 and now ~$2700 !!! (and has been ~$2700 for at least 2 months)

    That is an extreme example.

    I have a 14 day convertible for OGG (Sept) for $573. Now ~$1400 !!! up from ~$900. I have made a convertible OGG reservation for over 5 years in Sept (same time period) and has run around $280-$300 per week.

    I have more examples.
    AutoSlash has not come close to my current Costco rentals for my LIH or OGG rentals.

    I always book 9 or 10 months in advance, and check pricing every Tuesday. Prices are higher right now for June, but I'd expect that, to be honest. Discount Hawaii Car Rental has shown relatively consistent pricing for the past 4 months or so, as well. I haven't been recording the prices, but if I had to guess I'd say that the same car is now about $50-75 higher than it was a few months ago.

    I also make mine way in advance, and glad I have. I also track every few days to get the drops (which I have), but for months now these prices have gone up without dropping.

    I don’t go to Kauai in June normally (usually Sept in odd years) - so perhaps this is normal... but, we go to Maui every Sept - and my comparisons for 3 vehicle types (convertible, Int SUV and Std car) are much (much) higher than past years.
    And have not dropped, and AutoSlash has not come close at least for Alamo and Budget (these are the only ones I have used).

    There has been a drop in Costco Car Rental prices for LIH and OGG.

    Pays to check frequently - I used the Costco App now that I am not on a computer regularly anymore.

    I am at ~$52/day for LIH and ~$37/day for OGG for Int SUV.
    And $55/day and $41/day for Convertible

    The current convertible prices are much (much) more - liking going to go with Int SUV for north Kauai, and convertible for Maui

    Yep, I have the app too. It helps me check more often. Best I have right now is $335 for a week in an intermediate both on Maui and Kauai.

    Our LIH Int SUV dropped again.
    AutoSlash (for Alamo and Budget) has not beaten Costco. $840 for 17 days.

    I have mine entered in AutoSlash also but I have never had any luck through them. Right now I have both Kauai and Maui through Costco but both $335 for a week in an intermediate. I keep watching.:)

    So the other day I started shopping for our car rental on Maui for August 4-18, 2018. Most companies including Costco were running at just under/over $1,000 for the two weeks. I rechecked this morning and prices were still around $1,000. I went to Discount Hawaiian Car Rental. I got a car (Yaris) for $500 For the 2 weeks. It was funny on Costco the cheapest car was a 4 door Jeep at about $980 For the two weeks.

    For the first time we are staying in Kaanapali. All our precious stays were in Kihei. We are spending one week at DRI Kaanapali Beach Club and one week at Hona Koa that we got through Club Select through Diamond. We were suppose to be going to Molokai (1 week) and Maui (2 weeks) in October but without my participation Patti let a "friend" talk her into New Orleans vice Hawaii with the "friend." Patti I have had had a long talk about while we may invite "friend" to travel with us, she has no say in where we decide to travel. Patti knows to never let this happen again. But then I had a whole lot of Diamond Points that were going to go unused and lost this year. So the unscheduled trip to Hawaii in August.

    Dropped another $10 ($830)
    and then just popped up to $930.

    Doubt I will see lower than $830 ($49/day for Int SUV), but will continue surveillance - Costco App takes <1 min

    Costco still can't touch my rate at Budget (direct). They have been $100 total higher since I started planning the trip. AutoSlash actually did find one rate better ($10 cheaper), but it was with Advantage who doesn't have anything equivalent to FastBreak.
