Rental car prices are through the roof these days.

There’s a reason rental car prices have soared. It’s due to a limited supply. How can this be? Well, just like the airlines, most companies have parked much of their fleet. That’s right, they reduce the supply of rental cars, thereby effectively reducing supply while demand remains the same.

So not only are inexpensive rental cars harder to find, the average price of the fleets is increasing as well. This is done to give the companies more profit. If you, as a consumer, don’t have the benefit of a corporate contract to guarantee you the best car rental rates – you might think you’re out of luck. But fear not!

We’ve put together the Best Car Rental Tips to help you get the most value from your car rental dollars.
