Travel Money Saving Tips…

Car Rental Money Saving Tips…

Rental car companies
Priceline for rental cars. Do your price research and then go to Priceline’s  ”Name Your Own Price”. It may not always work but good to try for a reduced price on rental car…
Go offsite, Picking up a car at the airport can cost you from $80 to $200 more depending on the length of the rental.  I use Hertz or Enterprise rental cars in Puerto Rico. Last time I saved $225 by renting from Enterprise and picking the car up at the Ritz Carlton in Isla Verde. I went to the taxi stand asked for a taxi to the Ritz was told it was $12. I was there in five minutes, picked up my car drove back picked up the family and we were off. My wife and son picked up the checked luggage and waited for me outside. The trip cost me $15 with tip and saved me $210. Same thing on the trip home; dropped the family to check bags dropped the car, got a taxi back for another $15 so actual saving were $195 which is a great deal!

Clear the cookies, I am a loyalty member to several rental car companies for the weekly discount codes by email and ease of renting. When renting online you need to clear your cookies before starting your search… Because sometimes the prices quoted are higher, regardless of the fact that I am logged in as a loyalty member. To prevent this from happening, you can clear the cookies on your Internet browser. This way, the rental car site will think it’s your first visit and will offer you a better deal.
All great information to save you money on your next vacation rental car. You can combine these to save you even more money. Sometimes if you clear your cookies and search for offsite get your price for selected car and then edit the itinerary to SJU to pick up at airport you may be surprised to get a reduced price.

I like Hertz because I am a gold member so I just give the driver my name (picking up at airport) he gives me the parking spot number my reserved car is in. I load up the car get my rental papers from inside do a walk around to note any damage, scrapes, dings take out my license and head to the gate for check-out. Quick simple easy process of about 15 minutes to clear the lot. Doing an offsite with Hertz I would pick up in Condado. Ashford ave. which is about $19 by taxi. I go with the cheaper deal from the top rental companies for the best deals on clean new vehicles'. Picking up at the Ritz, Condado or SJU has always netted me clean cars!
