Many rental car companies offer “ski deals” in the form of promotional codes that are valid during ski season. Here are a few examples of deals you can find online:

Hertz: Save by visiting the ski deal section of their website and redeeming a Hertz coupon.

Avis: Avis offers a variety of online discounts.

Budget: Save with Budget coupons and offers.

Upgrade at the Counter for Big Savings: A good trick to saving money on car rentals comes from taking advantage of the fact that many car rental employees get rewarded for upsells, even if they end up renting a vehicle for cheaper than its current rate. The main goal is to get the customer to spend more than they intended.

You can reap the benefit of this assuming there is availability. It’s a good trick, but not 100 percent reliable—something to keep in mind depending on how flexible you are with your travels.
