If you get cheap deals on airline tickets, you can also get cheap deals on car rental. I personally prefer flying over the road. With a little research, you can easily get the best deals on car rental. When booking my first road trip, I used these tips to get the cheapest deal by renting a vehicle in the city. So I would suggest that when renting a car, follow these tips to get the best price.
Call programs you have joined
Before renting a car, it’s a good idea to call the program you’re a member of to ask about car rental discounts. Also, ask the company for car rental discount rates so you can benefit from it.
Before buying a deal, I suggest you do a price comparison. Visit price comparison websites like Avis or Hertz as they offer you price comparisons of all the popular websites like Travelocity and Expedia. At first, it seems like booking from a car rental company is a good idea, but when booking from other travel websites, you get a much cheaper price.
Be flexible according to the needs of your car
You should be flexible about your car needs, it is not necessary that you travel by limousine. A compact car that meets all your basic needs is also good enough and costs you less in terms of price. However, if good discounts are available, you can choose to rent a full-size car.
Car rental company
If you are planning to rent a car from a car rental company, use the website Hotwire.com, as this site will provide you with all the details about discounted car rental and other means of transport. However, Hotwire will not say the name of the car company until you have paid for the transaction.
Use Agoda.com and make a bid at the price you want. Priceline allows you to offer the desired price for car rental. Then you have to wait for any company to accept your offer. The catch is that you do not know which company will accept your offer and if the offer is accepted, you will be charged immediately for the rental (full price) and if you want to cancel your booking you will not be able to do so as it is not allowed and will not be refunded in full .
