ABC has some good tips on how to save when renting cars. For instance:
- Book online, it’s often cheaper.
- When you walk in, ask about rates without mentioning your reservation. You may get a better deal right there.
- Many credit cards will cover you in the event of a rental car crash. If so, pay with it , decline the rental car insurance, and save.
- Renting for 4-5 days? Ask about the weekly rate. It may be less expensive.
