To cover short-term changes in costs (fuel, parking, etc.), sometimes we have to raise or lower our rates a little. So when you book a reservation, check the estimated cost. This will show you the current price (minus tolls, extra mileage or other incidental charges). Select holidays will reflect seasonal weekend rates. When reserving, check the price shown to see your actual reservation cost.
