Prices have the tendency to spike as the busy Holiday car rental begins. So, if you are hitting the road this summer, better get booking now with our saving tips.
Always book smart : Always use the online portals and compare the rates online from the car rental providers. If you are looking for a better bargain, don’t hesitate to delete the cookies from the computer as comparing websites of the same car rental provider can cause a dramatic shift in price.
Pay attention to the location: Pick-up address plays a crucial role in deciding the car rental rate. As airports are the hub for largest fleet and highly competitive car hire prices, they are subjected to additional levies. These extra charges can be avoided by picking up the car rental at the downtown zones. For longer routes, taking a train or other public transport to pick the car rental in the downtown can save you a considerable amount.
Choose your travel insurance wisely : Regardless of what car you are renting, ensure that you don’t get yourself over-insured. With a lot of insurance agents with alluring insurance plans, it is important to make the right choices. If you are planning a longer trip, a CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) is a must or you can also consider buying an annual car hire excess policy for trips beyond the Christmas season.
Always look for Full-to-Empty Fuel Policy : As fuel is the costliest investment in any trip, it is beneficial to pay in advance for a full tank and return the rental car as much near to empty as possible. On the contrary, you can use apps like GasBuddy for the cheapest and nearest options in fuel.
Choose your additional services as per the need : GPS? Child car seat? Other high-end accessories? Well, few things which were important on your last trip might be not-so-important for the coming trip.
