How to spend less on your car rental

Five Tips to Save On Car Rentals

Published: 10/03/2022

The summer season is nearly here, and so the number of people visiting the region is going to increase. These tourists are going to be in search of an affordable car rental company. In this article, we discuss several ways to ensure you save money while renting a car. It includes avoiding the airport rentals and asking discounts, amongst others. We advise you to give these five handy tips a read to ensure additional savings on your rented vehicle.

Identify your requirement to car rental

Keep an Open Mind

There are many customers who blindly opt for a car rental of a specific brand or model. These rental vehicles are mostly offered at a significantly higher rate than other high-end cars. So, if you're not brand conscious, you can bag an excellent deal on a car that either offers similar or better qualities.

Coupons, Loyalty Programs, and Discounts

When you're visiting a car rental, you may want to ask about their loyalty programs or discounts that they have to offer. These loyalty programs are often free to sign up for and come with various perks. Additionally, several car rentals offer their cars at a discounted rate. In case you haven't researched them online, you can directly ask one of their staff. Apart from this, when opting to book a rent a car on their website, you could look for discount coupons for additional savings. 

Identify Your Requirements

It is vital to understand your requirements and also do your calculations to ensure the total cost doesn't go above your desired budget. It includes understanding the car size, mileage, fuel fee, and other additional features. If you're going to travel solo, you could opt for an economical car as opposed to renting a large-sized SUV. Verify whether the insurance costs are included, the mileage it will offer, and check about add-on features such as a GPS. If you have a child along, you will want to consider getting a child seat. These features come at an additional cost, so you need to narrow down your requirements before renting the vehicle.

Don't rent a car at the airport

Don't Rent at The Airport

It is advisable to skip the car rental kiosks located at their airports. The likelihood of finding a relatively cheaper deal online is higher than renting at the airport. Reliable and affordable car rental will also be able to offer free pickup from the airport.

Read the Policy

You need to have a look at the policies of the car rental before you rent a car. Check if there is a cancelation penalty and define the additional late returns costs. Besides that, you also need to learn their fuel policy, since it appears to differ for every rental car.

Decide on The Rental Period Beforehand

It is essential for you to understand the rental period before renting the vehicle. A weekly rate will offer higher savings as opposed to renting the car for a shorter period. Several factors affect the price, such as the season and days you choose to rent the vehicle. The prices tend to go up during winter, and on weekends, so you need to try combinations when deciding on your rental period.
