The Major Reviews On Car Rentals

Jul 24, 2008
There's more to renting the car than just reserving it and paying for it, to make sure that you get the best deal follow these steps and tips.

The best thing to do initially is to find three or four car rental companies in the local phone book or the internet of course. Spend some time carrying out this task because in some respects it the most important if you want to locate the best car rental deal.

It is always a good idea to check out if the car rental agency is running any special deals at the time you phone as you could save yourself quite a few dollars. Also check on hotel and airline partnerships, extra charges, insurance, everything you can think of that can help lower what you have to pay for your car rental, or what would make the car rental more convenient for you.

Pickup and collection conditions vary between companies so choose one that best suits your circumstances.

Pick a car, depending on your needs, find a car that could fit all the people you'll have in it, and if you're alone just use a compact, some rentals charge higher for larger vehicles.

The next thing to do, after you've totally decided on which to take, remember to reserve it, some car rentals include the reservation fee on the overall rent, some make it out to be an extra fee, you should also look out for this when get a car rental.

Car rental doesn't have to be expensive and if you are looking to keep the cost down here are some more ideas which may help.

Check for vehicle upgrades at no extra charge; alternatively, pick your car up just as the office opens. The great thing about arriving at the car rental office early is there is a good chance that you will get a larger vehicle free of charge as there will probably be shortage of lower grade cars.

Another tip is to use the internet more as many discounts are available online. Sometimes the company will arrange to find a car at your own price where you just give them your budget and they'll find the best deal for you, plus you won't have to go anywhere to get a rental.

When you return your car, make sure the tank is full as you don't want to pay the fuel surcharge if the rental company has to fill it up.

Many good packages are found when you incorporate a fly-drive and fly-drive-stay deal where you often do not even have to worry about booking a hotel. Most travel specialist will arrange this for you.

For those regular flyers that accumulated a discount, then why not use this to offset your cost because many car rental companies will exchange these for you against the rental. You will have to judge whether this is a worthwhile proposition which will depend a great deal on how much time you have left on your discount.

Discounts and special deals are always there just waiting for someone to ask for them so what is the point in being shy about it.
