The increase in business travel and the need for short-term transportation for family trips has made the use of the Internet for booking car rentals an important aspect of travel planning. Companies like Hertz and Enterprise have extensive car rental booking sections on their web sites, allowing consumers to book most types of cars for a relatively low price up to a day in advance. However, there are a few important tips for those who are new to booking car rentals online to remember before diving in.
An important point is regarding the rental cost of the car, which is usually different from just the cost of driving the car. The final price will always include everything from the fuel costs to insurance monies.
Availing temporary auto insurance is a wise thing to do in case you do not have any other general car insurance. This can be done during the course of booking. There are additional charges that include local and federal taxes, in accordance with the state you are in. Usually the price that is advertised is not actually what you end up paying… There are additional charges and fees that creep up.
Another important consideration in booking a car rental online is what type of vehicle is best suited for the purpose of the consumer. Ranging from economy to passenger vans, car rental web sites offer a wide range of options.
Remember to take account of the number of passengers, cargo and other factors, because it’s best to reserve a car with the next highest capacity. So, if you have four passengers and three large pieces of large luggage to take along, you should opt for a five-seater with the capacity for four large luggage pieces.
