Going on a vacation can be expensive affair especially when it comes to car hire. With customers being slapped with hidden charges, how do you ensure you get a good car hire deal?
Before the day of your vacation, research online on the available car hire companies in your vacation destination. Compare their rates, check the type of cars they have and read their terms and conditions. This will help you know which company you should hire from during your vacation.
Next, avoid fuel guzzlers. If you are traveling alone, there is no need to hire a family van. This will only increase your overall costs. Moreover, you will spend more on fuel. Select a car depending on what you intend to do during your vacation. If you will be going over the Canyons, a Jeep will be more ideal than a Sedan.
Avoid hiring a car with the tank full. This is because you will be required to return it with the tank full, regardless of whether you used the fuel or not. Instead, opt to fuel at the nearest gas station as soon as you leave the car hire agency.
Finally, return the car on time. You do not want extra charges simply because you did not return the car within the agreed time.
