Pickup location: LAX
Drop Off location: LAX
Pickup date & time: 2/14 very late VS 2/15/24 in AM (flight arrives 10:15pm) (was thinking I could shuttle to an airport Hyatt since it's so late and with the time change, we'll be exhausted and maybe get the car the next day. I have a free night award at Hyatt with just discoverist status).
Drop Off Date & Time: 2/20/24 by 1pm
Preferred Car Size: 2 adults, 2 teens, and a toddler, plus suitcases
Age (if under 25): 2 drivers above 40
Best quote: Booked some half price tickets to LAX via the SWA sale. I'm seeing cars in the $550 total range. Was hoping (dreaming?) to pay less than $400 for the weekend. I looked at Costco and the Chase portal.  I have plenty of chase points that I can use.

I can assist you with the rental.
Are you looking for the cheapest price and the car model and size will not matter?
