Lower Care Rental Costs

Renting a car can involve a labyrinth of extra fees and charges, which can raise rental costs dramatically. You may, though, refuse some of these safely to lower what you pay.

Limit the Extras
Car rental companies charge a fortune for extras, from GPS devices to child safety seats. Learn how much tolls are and compare them to what car rental agencies charge to include an electronic toll pass or transponder.

Explore Alternatives
Some rental companies might offer a deal on a week that costs less than renting for four days. If there are no offsetting early return fees or penalties, take the deal and return early. Also check out rental fees for picking up and dropping off outside of airports. The difference can be substantial if you opt for a little less convenience.

Use Your Own
The daily insurance fees rental companies charge are steep, and they might duplicate what you already have. Check with your auto insurer to see what’s covered.
