How to save money on car rental

There are many different reasons why you might want to rent a car in Ukraine. Such services became available to residents of our country not so long ago, but they have already gained popularity. A rented car provides high mobility and comfort of movement, but at the same time you do not need to worry about the technical condition of the transport, since the rental company has already thought about this. For this, as well as & mdash; for a clean interior, the presence of the necessary additional functions (Wi-Fi, child seat) and even for a personal driver, if necessary. But if everything is so good, then it must be expensive? Not necessary! Read on and find out how to wisely save on rental.

Savings tips

If you need to rent a car and do not want to overpay, then try using several recommendations that have been proven in practice.

  1. Book your car in advance. Experienced users say that ordering a car on the spot is not cheaper, and more often than not, just the opposite. Advance booking can significantly reduce the cost of the service (up to 10-15%). In addition, when ordering a vehicle at the last moment, it may turn out that the model you like is no longer available. We'll have to urgently look for another option, but it is not always profitable in terms of price.
  2. It is better to choose a car according to the number of passengers. When planning a trip alone or as a couple, there is no need to rent a large crossover for five passengers. Such a car not only costs significantly more than a compact sedan, but also has a much higher fuel consumption.
  3. You should pay attention to promotional offers and discounts. Sometimes rental companies add a combination of hotel plus auto to the service package. Such an offer will allow you to save a lot. Comparison with competitors' prices can also help to achieve a certain discount.
  4. It is not profitable to order delivery to the airport or train station. It is convenient when, upon arrival, a comfortable car is already waiting, but only such a service significantly increases the cost of rental. It is much cheaper to limit yourself to a transfer to the hotel, and after a good rest, go to the rental company's office on your own and choose the car you like at the best cost. A good option would be a company that is close to the place of arrival or has its own fleet at the airport..
  5. It is better to rent a car with a full tank of fuel. Otherwise, you will have to pay for refueling, and when returning the car, you will need to pay only for the amount of fuel used.
  6. You shouldn't spend money on additional services. The presence of a router or navigator increases the rental price by 10-15 dollars per day. It's easier to download a GPS navigator to your phone and use it on your trips.
  7. Paying your rent is easier with a credit card than with a debit card. Almost all rental companies block a certain amount of money on the client's account for the purpose of reinsurance in the event of a fine. On credit cards, this part of the collateral is always less than on debit ones. In addition, a refund for the latter can take about a month.
  8. Be interested in the nuances of insurance. Even if the contract to be concluded is cheap enough for you, you need to immediately find out all the details of the transaction: which cases the company considers insured and which not, the amount of the franchise, and more. There are rental companies that do not include minor damage insurance.
  9. For long trips, it is safer to include one or even two drivers in the contract. Relaxation should not be tiring, and the journey should not be turned into a monotonous ride.
  10. Look for rental options not only on the websites of large companies. Quite often, offers from small firms are much more profitable.

Where to book?

Everyone who knows the rental companies market well notes the Ukrainian company Narscars, which offers its clients favorable terms of cooperation. All vehicles are under 4 years old and in good technical condition.

Depending on the car class, a certain amount of a deposit will be required when booking. Its size must be indicated on the official website of the rental company. A premium SUV always charges a higher deposit than a compact sedan.Middle class costs tenants from $ 25 to $ 45 per day, depending on the brand of the car. For trips with small luggage, they choose mainly budget cars that are distinguished by economical fuel consumption.

The pledged funds are returned to the client in full in the absence of any violations and damage to the car upon return.

Findings

To make the savings more tangible, when choosing a rented car, you should pay attention to such important factors as the size of the car, its class, engine size. The key points are:

  • the size of the cabin and trunk & ndash; traveling light is more suitable for a small car with an economical fuel consumption;
  • type of fuel used in the car & ndash; here a lot depends on the client's preferences and the distance of the route. So, an electric car will be profitable around the city, and for a long trip along the highway — diesel;
  • gearbox – When choosing a manual or automatic gearbox, previous driving experience, existing driving skills and the desire of the renter play an important role. But mechanics are always cheaper than a machine gun.
