Renting a car could be very tricky especially for those who are renting from time to time and not well involved with the market. Knowing some tips and tricks would help a lot if you intend to rent a car. If you are going to a new city and you are searching for suitable car rental office the consider applying this procedure and you will save yourself a lot of trouble.

When you plan your next trip, search the internet for a decent car rental office where you can get a good car with a good price. First, do a little search through the internet and I am sure that you will find a handful of rental offices all around you. You can get a nice quote if you booked your car as early as possible but if you waited till the last second or if you book it from the airport then you are going to pay the highest rate.

When you tend to rent a car, try to determine what is the type of the car that you are going to need this may help you cut the costs down. For example, if you want a city transportation then take a small hatchback or sedan as it would be more than enough but, if you are going to travel for long distances on high ways then you need a bigger and more stable car and also more comfortable. When you get a big car for a long period in the city then you will need extra money for fuel, for parking and of course the car rentals.

The third and most important tip on what we have said is checking the price. Do not get dazzled by the low rates written in the advertisement, you need to check that this is the price that you are going to pay as in most of the cases this is the basal rate only and when you need to pay the bill you will find that the extra charges had multiplied the price by two or three. The first addition is the taxes which are sometimes around 20% of the price.

Airport surcharge is another charge that maybe added if you are renting your car from the airport. Here is a tip for you, take the coach to the city center then manages to find car rental there, and the price would be much cheaper.

Do not forget to fill the tank before you get your car back to the office as the car rental agent will surcharge you for the empty tank and obviously this would be more than the value that you will pay if you filled the tank yourself.

My final tip is for those who are going to rent a car abroad. You need to double check whether the country that you are travelling to requires certain fees or insurance for driving there or not as these fees would be paid by you and not by the car rental office.
