Need a bit more info to be accurate
Actual dates
What you fancy

However I have done a 6th Oct pick up with Alamo Brits as a guess. However 1 week later it's still the same price.

389 Full size
412 Int SUV
428 Standard SUV

So there is a base to work from

Have a look if you can add a car to your BA booking, in the manage my booking part of their website. We paid around 70 more for full size suv compared to the flight only price on our California trip, sign up for the executive club and you get a 2nd driver free.
Not sure if you can add a car later as we booked it at the same time but worth a look. The car was with Avis and had all insurances and taxes paid, just fuel to pay for.

Will do. However it will be tomorrow morning as I'm watching some documentary rubbish on Sky!
But I'm up at silly o'clock so should be done by 7.00am.

But, are you looking for a 7 seater or a standard SUV?

1 driver opens up cheaper alternatives than 2 drivers.
