Tips on renting a car

Here are some tips for using a rental car.


Look for lower rates on the internet, coupons and some social media sites.


Sometimes you can get a cheaper rate when you do not rent the car from the airport area.


Use the weekly rates instead of daily rates. For example one rental car company will charge less for a 7 day rental then a daily rate,  


Familiarize yourself with the car when you pick it up from the rental place. Make a mental note where the wipers and lights are. Some states require that in rain the lights should be on and use the wipers.

The decision for the extra insurance may depend up your own insurance company. Some rental car places require more coverage.
