Summary: Rental cars are convenient and affordable. However, many people end up paying more than they should due to a lack of due diligece.
As travelers prepare for their vacations this summer, many will drive rental cars. While these cars can be convenient, there are associated costs that can be confusing. Here is a look at some of the most common mistakes that could cost you money, and how you can avoid them.
Purchasing Extra Insurance
If you have a current auto insurance policy, it may cover damage and personal liability for rental cars. And, if you use a credit card to book your rent a car in Amman Airport for example, it may provide secondary collision coverage, which can be a lifesaver if an accident were to occur. Be sure to check this out before you rent a car. This way, you’ll be able to save money by declining the coverage at the rental car counter.
Choosing Only One Rent-A-Car Company
Car rental rates tend to vary depending on the company, so it definitely pays to shop around instead of choosing the first rental car company that you see. Companies like Monte Carlo Rent a Car, LLC offer low prices on rental cars along with easy reservations.
If you are planning to drive long distances, be sure to check for mileage caps. Many rental companies will offer unlimited miles for the period of the rental, allowing you to drive around as much as you desire without facing extra fees. However, other companies may tack on extra fees for surpassing a daily mileage maximum. If you rent a vehicle, be sure you have sufficient miles, or unlimited miles, to cover the distance that you are planning to travel with the vehicle.
