|Consider off airport rental as this can save 10% or more on most rentals. |
Many off airport companies will come and pick you up on arrival. Be sure to shop wizely for the best deal.
If you see a sign on the counter that says, “Cars Available,” It means let’s negotiate. Even if you have a reservation, see what they can do for you… upgrades are always nice on long trips.
Beware the high pressure “Insurance” sale. Your credit card may cover it as well as your personal car insurance. Always check these first and don’t let them get to you when they say, “Since your deductable is $1000 we will have to get that if you have an accident.”
If you ordered a compact and all they have when you arrive is a full size, don’t let them bully you into paying for the upgrade. You made the reservation in good faith and even though you didn’t pre pay, it is still a contract that they must meet. Insist on no extras.
