The easiest way to save a lot of money is to compare the different car rental agencies’ prices. It would be very time-consuming to do it yourself, but fortunately car rental search websites has been constructed, so you just have to enter dates and location. Then you can see the cheapest price for the various car models.
Try to plan your car rental need for the weekend. Most car rental agencies have special weekend offers, so you can save a lot of money, if you rent the car in the weekend.
Long term rental is another way to rent an inexpensive car. If you need a car for 4 or 5 days, you can often rent a car for a week for the same amount.
Do you want a large Audi instead of a small Fiat? But do you not want to pay for it. Then try to ask for a free upgrade. Often the car rental agencies will give it to you, if the can. The reason is that they want your loyalty, and a cheap way to get it, is to offer you a little extra service. But it is an extra bonus, you cannot be certain to get. So do not plan your whole vacation on it.
If you say no to the insurance, you can save a lot of money. But it can also cost you a lot of money, if you are not insured when to get involved in a car accident. So read the policy carefully, before you refuse it.
On the other hand the car rental agencies earn a lot of extra money on the insurance part. So do pick the insurances, you need; no less and no more.
Normally the rental periods are divided into 24 hours. So if need the car for e.g. 27 hours, it is sensible to wait a few hours before collecting the car; or return it a few hours earlier. You can also try to ask the car rental agency if it is possible to return the car a few hours to late. Often it is not a problem, if you ask for it.
Finally it is a good idea to prepay the car. So instead of renting the car at arrival in the airport, you should find a good price on the Internet and book the car in advance. Then the car will also be ready for you, when you arrive in the airport.
