5 Top Things to Consider When Renting a Car

June 4, 2015

Going on a trip to Miami, Orlando, or anywhere in the United States, always requires some degree of planning; such as when to buy airline tickets, making hotel reservations, purchasing passes for rides and attractions, organizing tours, and figuring out which shopping centers to visit, etc. Improvising as you go with these details of the trip, in the best case scenario, will waste time and money, and perhaps make you miss some sights; but in the worst case scenario, it could keep you from traveling all together.

When planning, it is necessary to consider, the mobility you will have once you get to your destination. What will you move around in and is it a central part of the trip? Is there quality public transportation? What is the distance between the points of interest you want to visit? Is it possible to park on the street? Is there parking available at the places you intend to visit? The truth is, that the distances within the United States are enormous; and, unless you go to New York, it is almost always advisable to rent a car. Modern highways, extremely affordable costs of vehicle rentals, and the ability to better control your time during your trip, are all good reasons why renting a car during your stay in the United States is a very convenient option. However, once you have decided to rent a car, it is common for more questions to arise.

1. Where to Rent a Car: At the Airport? At The Car Rental Company? Online?

In the United States, all car rental companies have very competitive rates; and prices vary all the time, depending on the availability of vehicles. However there are few who have time to call 10 different car rental companies, to get information on the best and most affordable packages and car models for the trip. Therefore, renting from an online service, like RentingCarz, is the most recommended way to go about it; because, with a fare consolidator, it allows you to compare the options offered by major car rental companies (Avis, Alamo, Hertz, Budget, Dollar, National, and Thrifty), and to rent the best option online right away, and in a safe manner.

2. How to Know Which Car Rental Company Has the Best Rates?

RentingCarz always offers the best rates, guaranteed. This means that if someone finds the same model from the same company for a lower value RentingCarz will make up the difference. These rates are exclusively guaranteed for passengers arriving from countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

3. Is It Better to Pay Online, or at The Counter?

It is always important to book online, as it gives you much lower prices than the over-the-counter rates offered by the car rental companies. Furthermore, you will avoid reaching your destination and finding out that the company has no car rental vehicle availability, and only gives cars over to those with prior reservations. However, concerning the payment of the vehicle, you may do so online or later at the counter. If you reserve the vehicle online, the rate that you found online will be honored at the counter.

4. When and with Whom to Purchase Insurance for Your Rental Car

Fares booked online when renting a car, usually have a very significant discount compared to those offered by car rental companies at the counter. RentingCarz insurance rate offers total protection, including collision insurance without excess and liability insurance. It also has the benefits of having an additional driver and unlimited mileage, with all mandatory taxes and surcharges.

5. When Do I Apply for a Child Safety Seat or GPS?

It is important to rent a car that comes with a GPS. RentingCarz offers this option, which allows you to ensure availability in advance, and receive discounts compared to the counter rates. With regard to child safety seats, there is no need to reserve them in advance, since car rental companies have them readily available in the store.
