need priceline car rental tips for big island in February

I have a 12 day trip planned to the Big Island in February and would like to use Priceline for a minivan rental. I've found some advise from the biddingfortravel.com site, and I know what the going rate at the big 5 companies is. My question is..does anyone have advise on just how low I should bid from those prices? 20%, 30%, 40%?? Thanks for your help?

Try getting prices via Hotwire. Then discount about 20% with your Priceline bid.

Thanks for the advice. Priceline did not accept my bid, but I've got four weeks to go and I'm sure your suggestion was a good starting point!

Kikianne: I'm going to Big Island in August and would like to know how you did on your rental bid. Any advise?

I booked my car with my air -- the car rental was at least $200 less this way. If you hadn't already booked the air -- price out this option before buying your ticket -- the airlines generally have good deals with car rentals.

If you are flying in/out of Kona - Alamo has had some neg comments about their service -- per the tripadvisor discussion forum.
