The Steps To Take To Get The Best Car Rental Rates And The Best Possible Car

Oct 24, 2007
If you want to get the best rental car for the money there's a lot more to renting the automobile than just reserving it and paying for it, to make certain that you have the best deal adhere to these steps and tips.

Pick out 3 to 4 rental car agencies that accommodate your wants and needs. You can do this either through the yellow pages, or through the internet like I do. The key point is to take the time to glance over every conceivable agency prior to making a choice, you don't want to neglect the best car rental because you didn't take the time to find the best companies to choose from.

Contact the agencies and inquire about their specials, location, vehicle availability, pickup locations, hotel and airline partnerships, additional charges, insurance requirements, and everything else you can think of that can help bring down the cost of your rental car, or what would make the car rental more convenient for you.

Next you want to select a pickup point that is near you so it won't be a bother, some rental car companies pay for the cab fare if you have to take one, some will pick you up at your house or at the airport to take you to your rental car. These are the ones I prefer, it makes things a lot easier not worrying about how you are going to get to the location. Choose a car, dependent on your needs, find a vehicle that could accommodate all the people you may have in it, and if you are use a compact car to save money, some rentals charge higher rates for larger vehicles.

After you've totally decided on which vehicle to take, call back to reserve it, some car rental agencies include the reservation fee, some make an extra fee, you had better ook out for this when get rental car.

When getting rental car check for available upgrades they may offer at no charge, you want the best possible deal so you'd want the best car. The best way to do this is pickup your car early in the morning, when the other cars haven't come back yet so there's a shortage on economy cars and the rental agency may just give you an upgrade for a lower price. Do like I do and get an internet car rental. Some car rental agencies offer internet only discounts.

Look for packages like fly-drive-stay or fly-drive, this will get you great discounts on rentals, and you won't have to worry about other details like a hotel or an airline, everything's there. You can find these packages with most travel agencies. If your frequent flyer discount is about to expire, there are even some rental car agencies that offer to exchange these deductions to discounts on your car rental. Fill the gas tank up before you return your car, rental companies will charge you an inflated price to fill the tank.
