Please note that car rental pricing is dynamic and will vary.  

Travel dates and how late you book will have a big impact on what you pay. (The later you leave it, the more you'll pay, especially in high season).

Also, prices for the same dates can differ significantly by rental company. A big factor is whether a rental firm is 'on-airport' or 'off-airport'. (Usually 'off-airport' are cheaper). The age, condition and mileage of rental vehicles are also big factors affecting price. (Cheaper rental vehicles are usually older).
