Most consumers have rented cars for business or pleasure and almost any person over the age of 18 with a clean driving record can rent a car. To rent, you will need a credit card, proof of address, and a valid driver’s license.
The following are tips on how to save money on car rental:
Go for the Economy Vehicle
Economy vehicles are the cheapest cars that a person can obtain from a rental company. They are small vehicles that usually have amazing fuel efficiency. Examples of economy vehicles are the Chevrolet Spark and the Nissan Versa. Economy vehicles are best for frugal drivers who have a main goal of getting from point A to point B as cheaply as possible.
Rent for a Week
Another way a person can save money on a rental car is by renting it for an entire week. Rental car companies offer discounts of up to 20 percent for customers who take a vehicle for an entire seven days. Most major rental companies offer these special discounts on an ongoing basis.
Use Coupons and Discount Codes and Promotion Codes.
A consumer can receive discounts by using coupons and promotional codes during the sign-out process. A person can find such codes and discounts in a number of places. The rental company may have them on display right on its website. A shopper could also conduct a search online for the rental company's name and “discount codes", "promotion codes" or “coupons.” Coupon sites have some offerings for discounts between 10 and 35 percent from some major car rental companies. Shoppers can print the coupons from the website and bring them into the nearest rental location.
Show Those Cards
Plastic consumer cards are amazing when it comes to rental car discounts. Visa and MasterCard cardholders always have rental car discounts as one of their benefits. Triple A members also have access to rental car discounts. A consumer who is thinking about renting a car should call the card company and ask about the help it offers for auto rental.
Renting a car does not have to be a major expense. A consumer should never go into a rental company without special financial ammunition. That person should always search for discount assistance from a wide variety of sources first.
The last time anyone bothered to check, most moms and dads didn't mind saving at least a few dollars when it comes to spending money on back to school supplies.
As summer draws to a close and kids and parents alike begin contemplating the return to school, the latter group starts to take a long, hard look at their savings account and budget and wonder aloud or to one another if there's enough extra cash to go around when you're talking about clothes, lunch boxes, book bags and anything else that is related to getting back to class.
A big mistake most parents make is not preparing ahead of time for back to school shopping and instead willfully hop in the car with the kids in tow and simply start buying whenever their sons or daughters point at something they want.
Saving money on back to school is about thinking the process through and going line by line through each item on the list. If you're talking about clothing, you might want to consider, for example, buying from various stores that take in gently used items and sell them for about half of what you'd pay at a higher end retailer. Now, before you start stomping your feet at the thought of giving your kids “used” clothing, you might want to consider not only the savings but also the idea that most of these stores are remarkably picky with what they take and still can boast styles that are current and trendy, and ones that your kids won't immediately turn their noses up at when they see the items.
That alone is worth at least thinking about the next T-shirt or top you buy for your kids. And there's nothing that says just because back to school shopping has become a longer, more drawn out version of “Black Friday” doesn't mean you have to buy an entirely new set of clothing. Last year's clothes are fine, too.
As for the nuts and bolts of school shopping like pens, paper, stationary and lunch boxes, you should steer clear of office supply stores altogether. While they may promise adequate and aggressive pricing, they won't compete with stores like Walmart or Target. Shopping for these items at health and beauty stores also is a huge mistake due to pricing as well.
Moms and dads who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty in terms of putting time into the school shopping process also would be well advised to shop online and take full advantage of coupons and free samples along the way. Plenty of specialty stores for things like lunch boxes or book bags that are branded with particular characters or logos might be inclined to give away a certain percent off if you buy directly from them, and those prices could conceivably beat what the larger chains are offering.
Kids may give you a bit of trouble if they don't have a certain pair of shoes or the exact look their friends have but budgeting still has to play a large role in the shopping process. Having saved hundreds of dollars easily trumps sad faces on that first day of school, most of which will disappear by Labor Day.
