Car KeyNo one likes getting ripped off, especially when it comes to rental cars.

If you follow the tips below, you’ll find the perfect rental car for your next trip.

 

    1. Think About Your Needs: Before deciding on a class of vehicle, think about your needs.  Are you renting a car for a family vacation? Or are you renting a car because the Toyota is in the shop getting Camry parts replaced?  Select the class of vehicle based on your needs.

 

    1. Shop Around: If you want to get the best deal on a rental car, shop around.  Compare prices to find the best value.  Also look online for discounts and other promotions.  This will help you get the best deal on a rental car.

 

    1. Understand that Rates Change: Like airline tickets, rental car fees go up and down more than the stock market.  Except with rental cars, it’s a little more predictable.  To save money, try to book your rental car ahead of time, especially during busy travel seasons.

 

    1. Get The Extra Coverage: It’s usually only a few dollars more and it covers your rear end just in case of an accident.  The extra coverage will help to ensure that you’re covered for the worst case scenario.

 

    1. Inspect The Car: Once you find a rental car, be sure to thoroughly inspect it.  Look for any dents and other issues.  Be sure to tell the rental car agent what you find.  This will prevent them from charging you for anything that is not your fault.

 

Following these five tips will help you on getting the most out of your rental car.  When returning the vehicle, be sure that the fuel is filled to the proper level.  Also be sure to remove all of your belongings from the vehicle.
