Rental Tips & info:Renting a car can be a simple and easy process. But, for something so simple, many people end up with the unfortunate surprise that a quick, uninformed or misinformed decision can bring delays, unnecessary expenses or major legal hassles. We can help you become informed so that renting a car stays a simple and pleasant experience.
One of the things to be aware of is that when you are quoted a "base rental car rate" it does not include sales taxes, airport taxes, airport/concession, vehicle leasing fees (vlf), rental coverages, etc. Some airports do not have all these fees, but some do.
Check some the charges that could increase the base rate, such as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) fees (in states that allow them): a deposit or refundable charge, airport surcharges and drop-off fees, fuel charges, mileage fees, taxes, additional driver fees, underage driver fees, out of state charges, and equipment rental fees (for items such as ski racks and car seats). These charges are defined below.
Many car rental agencies offer weekly or weekend deals. If your plans are flexible, you may be able to save money by renting a car when price breaks are available. But be sure to check about restrictions on special offers, including blackout dates when an quoted price may not be available.
All Specials and Rental Deals (Free unlimited milage, Free airport pick up and drop off, free upgrade,...)are subject to conditions and availability at participating locations. Rent a car rates may not reflect all offers and/or vehicle classes than those shown. Generally "base rate" do not include taxes, options, etc.
Know the specifics on damage waivers. Do not simply assume that your credit card carrier will cover the costs of repairs if you decline the rental car company's insurance coverage. Read the fine print! Many credit card coverage plans do not apply to certain types of vehicles and may not be applicable in some locations. If you have any doubts, take the insurance....you can be held responsible for the full amount of any damage done to the rental car while it is in your possession.
