Travel Tip: Alternate Ways You Can Book A Rental Car Online

Share on: Share on Google+

The next time you rent a car, how will you make that reservation?

By calling the company’s toll-free number?

By going to its website?

Consider alternate websites like Costco Travel, Auto Slash, or even AAA.

They often have much lower prices for their members.

Don’t forget opaque websites like Priceline or Hotwire.

They may also get you reduced rates.

When you’re booking, remember—you may not need to buy the supplemental insurance they want to sell you.

If you already own a car, chances are your own auto insurance policy covers you.

Check before you rent, and maybe even bring the policy with you to prove you don’t need to buy that extra insurance.
