Car Rental Tips: Look Out For Excess Costs

Travel & Tourism
It it likely that every now and again you will want to rent a car. But unless you are a seasoned road warrior (or even if you are), there are numerous aspects you might not be aware of that can make renting a car less expensive for you, as well as possibly getting you a better car with a potential upgrade.

The very first aspect we should think about is whether or not to accept the insurance they will invariably offer. Numerous car rental companies even attempt to "frighten" you into accepting their insurance with your rental, mentioning how much it will cost you if you are in an accident, even if it's not your fault. Numerous individuals acquire this insurance out of dread that something may happen, but they clearly have not done adequate homework.

The reality is that you must determine if you would be covered by the car insurance policy that you already have on your own car. Some insurance companies have a common policy where you are indeed covered with the same coverages and deductibles in your rental car. But be sure to check, as some insurance companies have an exception where if you are using the car for business purposes instead of personal reasons, then you are NOT covered.

The other option is that if you are paying for the car with your Visa or MasterCard, depending on which one you have, you might have coverage through Visa or MasterCard. You need to find out the details, because even if they do provide coverage for you, it may have an extremely high deductible or not cover things like theft or fire.

The amount of insurance from the car rental company can be as much as $8 to $12 per day that you have the car, so it can add up quickly.

There are numerous other means to save money with car rentals. Do your research to find out the rates that are being charged for cars. If you plan on doing a lot of driving, make sure that your contract allows unlimited mileage, or that the miles they permit will fall within the amount you plan to do, because the per-mile charges are large.

There is in truth not much savings to be had by booking early, but the situation you may run into is that the car class you want is sold out. A common tactic is to book a compact car because the car rental agencies will routinely offer you an upgrade at a discounted price when you get to the counter, or they may be out of compacts and upgrade you at no additional cost. But ensure you can live with a compact car in case they do not run out and do not offer an upgrade!

For drivers under age 25, costs for rental cars can be rather high but there are some things you can do to minimize the financial trouble of that as well.

To save even more money, check out some of the lesser known car rental companies. Frequently their pricing is better than the well known brand names and they provide extra perks as well, like possibly a GPS included in the car. Don't pick out your car rental company based on getting additional frequent flyer miles because by and large, there is not even close to an even trade off.

Being smart about your car rental process will save you a lot of money and make the experience that much more enjoyable, and it does not need to cost an arm and a leg!
