  • Tips That Help You Save Money With Your Car Rentals

  • From the very first signs of warm weather, people all over the world have

    started to consider their future summer vacation. The internet is already

    filled with all kinds of holiday offers and people, no matter their income,

    can surely find something that fits their financial status.

    No matter how big is your salary, wonderful destinations are waiting for

    you this summer. The sooner you book your flight tickets and your

    accommodation, the better. Few people on this planet have the power to

    spend money endlessly and the following article is going to help you

    understand some of the ways in which you can save some money without

    giving up comfort or anything else.

    I am referring here to the possibility of renting a car for the summer

    vacation. Many of us use to drive a rented car during their holidays. There

    are many reasons somebody decides to rent a car: more space, newer car,

    more power destined for the mountain roads etc. In the same way you are

    thinking well about the air company or the comfort of the hotel you are

    going to book, you should consider the rent a car company.

    Driving a rented car during vacation means trusting that the car you use is a

    safe one. When you choose to work with a major rent a car company you

    can at least hope, that all their cars are safe and checked by professionals

    before they are rented out. All major rent a car company have all types of

    new cars so you have a wide range of models to pick from.

    So the very first thing which I consider very important is the company you

    are going to choose. You can read on the net about peoples experiences

    while driving certain cars from certain companies. Read and analyze them

    and then decide accordingly.

  • If you lack the necessary time for the search process, you can use a travel

    agent who will do the job for you and, in the end, will present you some

    offers you can choose from.

    The decision should be also influenced by the price. I am not at all saying

    that the cheaper offer is the best offer. It never is. But you can compare

    prices so that you do not regret later, especially when you have in mind

    saving some money. You can visit the price comparison sites where you are

    helped to compare prices in order to find the best one that fits all the needs

    you might have.

    Once you have chosen the rent a car company, book the wished car as soon

    as possible; most people planning to travel to Romania will discover some

    good advice at the Thrifty Rent a car Bucharest Romania website. This way

    the company will offer you a price discount. It is a strategy of all rent a car

    agencies and a method to rent out as many cars as possible.

    Especially during summer time, rent car agencies want to have all their cars

    rented and they try to obtain more and more clients by offering them

    special offers and all kinds of discounts. Try also and see if you qualify for

    any of these discounts. For example, some rent a car use to offer for rent at

    special prices some car models.

    Is it possible that you can rent that particular car model? In order to answer

    to this question it is wise to understand the type of car you need. And the

    answer depends on the number of persons that will be traveling with you.

    Will you be going alone, with your spouse or with the spouse and the kids

    you have?

    Depending on the answer, you will need a compact or more spacious car. If,

    for example you will be driving with your spouse and the two kids of yours,

  • you definitely need a larger car. Kids need more space and if the journey

    will be a long one, their patience will be hardly tested.

    Giving them a little more space for the toys is much better, not to mention

    the fact that you are going to need more space for the many bags you will be

    taking along.

    The price for a rented car can be kept at a minimal level if you, for example,

    bring your own car seat for the kids. If you have your own car you probably

    have car seats for the kids. Instead of renting them, bring them along.

    Another way of reducing the car rental price is renting it for many days in a


    Usually when you rent the car for more than a couple of days, the price will

    be reduced and this is ok for somebody who wants to rent the car for the

    summer holidays.

    It is very possible that the car insurance policy you are currently paying for

    your own car is covering also for the situation you are driving a rented car.

    If this is your case, then the price will be greatly reduced as a big part of the

    price represents the costs associated with insurance.

    It is crucially important to understand exactly what happens if the rented

    car you are driving gets involved in a car accident. In what way is the car

    insurance policy you pay being of any help?

  • Before you pick the car and leave the city for the long expected vacation,

    make sure you examine the rented car. Check for any scratch or damage,

    take picture if necessary.

    Do that very attentively as you surely do not want to be held responsible for

    damages you have not made. These pictures may become a great help in the

    worst case scenario you are asked to pay for something you are not guilty
