You Should Avoid Airport Location
As you are entering the city in an airport portal, picking up the rental car at the airport location is convenient. And almost all the car rental companies have their location on airport. But the problem is rental price. You can have a rental car in off airport location in cheaper price than that of airport location. Many companies do not charge the fee directly. They put the charge on you in terms of “recovery charge”, “customer facility charges” etc. So better make short travel by public transport out the city. And pick up a car from the suburban area to avoid extra charges and make journey less expensive.
Beware of Hidden Fees
Many people face an issue regarding extra charges for refueling. The car rental company gives you a car with full tank of fuel. They expect you to return the car with full tank fuel. If you are able to return the car with full tank of fuel, they charge extra for the fuel. And the price they charge for the fuel is much higher than the market price. So it is better to always pick up car with full tank of fuel and return it with full tank of fuel.
The hidden fee may charge in terms of underage driver policy too. Car rental companies have their policy to rent car to the drivers aged above 25 years old. However, some company charges extra amount if the driver is aged less than 25 years. Read the terms and condition of the particular car rental company before hiring their car.
Keeping in mind few things before booking a car will save your pocket. And moreover knowing all beforehand makes your journey less stressful.
