Car RentalsWritten by S.A. Baker
Renting a car is a tough thing. Well, it can be. But, it doesn't have to be. To find a great deal, or even just a reliable car, you will want to do a little research. Save some extra cash in that pocket!
We used to believe it was simple to rent a car. All you had to do was get off your plane and head to lonely car rental place right next door. Not so any more. There is competition everywhere. This is good news to you, though. Competition, even with car rentals, means that you will pay off with deals in long run.
To make this happen, you may have to do your homework. Booking a car rental ahead of time is very wise. In fact, you should not wait until last minute. Anyone looking for a car rental immediately is more likely to pay higher price then someone who booked their rental a month or even a week in advance. Take time to investigate different car rental companies. Compare what they offer and their prices. Never take first offer either. Get your facts and quotes from several companies first.
Low AirfaresWritten by S. A. Baker
Do you have a trip in mind? Looking for low airfares to get you there? All is not lost. You can find a great deal on airfare if you take time to look for it. Low airfares are actually quite common right now, due to sluggish travel industry.
The more open minded you are about your trip, better your chances are of finding low airfare. Begin your search by deciding what is most important thing for you. Is it getting there quickly and in one shot? Is there a specific date you must travel? Being open about these things can provide for some great opportunity.
For instance, if you can be more flexible in date you arrive and return from your destination, perhaps you can find a better rate by flying during week? Flying out on a Friday is often much more expensive then flying during week. Also, taking a flight that has a lay over may seem like a big hassle, but it may save you some big bucks.
Of course, you should take time to compare and contrast what airlines have to offer. Often times, you can do this right online. There are also travel sites that claim to help you with your travel plans. But, don't just use them. Find prices for yourself through airlines as well. Why do this? Well, for one they may get you a good deal, but will their extra fees eat away at this saved money?
