It doesn’t matter where you’re traveling to, you probably want to rent a car for less than the going rate. A car rental can be pretty expensive, but there are ways to reduce the costs.

Book with your hotel and flight. Package deals are good deals to opt for. Just make sure you do your research to ensure that you are actually getting a savings. Even just booking a hotel and car rental or flight and car can help you save money.

Book a less popular vehicle. When you rent online, you can usually see rates for the various vehicles and it is easy to see which vehicles are less popular. They tend to be cheaper. While a convertible or tricked out SUV is fun, you’ll save quite a bit by going for the boring Honda.

Skip the extras. Just say no to anything extra. For example, GPS might be handy, but a map is considerably cheaper and most phones now have GPS features. You can easily save money by sticking to the basics.

It’s not difficult to save money on car rental if you decide what you want ahead of time. Don’t let the company sway you and get you to pay more for features you just don’t need.
