Finding the cheapest car is usually the first thing that comes up on our mind when searching for car rental. We can’t always take our cars along on long trips; it’s just really impractical. Car rental agencies based at airports often charge a premium by capitalizing on the consumers’ ignorance. People may think that it is a rip off but still rent the car out of desperation. Their normal responses are resignation and defeat followed by grudgingly paying for the rental. But luckily, with a little effort you can escape this vicious circle.
Finding the cheapest car possible should be started by locating the cheapest car rental agency on your destination area. Of course, you won’t find them on the airport, but it is possible to ask them to pick you up on the airport upon arrival.
Finding the cheapest car on a rental company is usually simple. You can easily call the car rental; give your price range and your preferred car type. They will immediately suggest the best price on a specific car model. If the company has an Internet site, it would make your job much easier. For example, big rental companies like Hertz and Avis have comprehensive sites, which allow you to sort the search result based on the rental costs. Paying the rental immediately with credit card will ensure that you get the listed price and postponing the payment may cause you to pay higher price due to fluctuations.
