Roadtrips are the best way to explore a country. Having the flexibility to go explore any road and the possibility to stop at each spot that seems worth of interest can open new perspectives on how we see a country. Renting a car doesn’t have to be expensive business in fact it can save you money if you decide to camp or sleep in the car.
Best Websites For Car Rental Price
Finding the best price out there to rent a car takes a lot of patience and dedication. Unlike airplane tickets where you can’t modify your flight without major cost penalties, the car market is a much friendlier and flexible one. There are many websites specialized in finding the best price and it is very important to use many of them. The prices will be different in everyone of them; you don’t want to spend all your time going directly on the websites of the companies you want to search for all the car rental companies at the same time. What is important to understand is not the fact that a site is better its that using the combination of the best sites you will end up finding the best options. It is important to use good car rental research techniques. You should open several tabs at the same time to be able to compare everything together or write the results down.
Kayak Car Rental:
kayak.com offers many high quality search service. When it comes to car rental it is a powerful tool that can save you a lot of time. Using Kayak you can also select various other websites : Hotwire, Priceline, CarRentals, EconomyBooking, Budget and many more depending on the country.
Expedia Car Rental:
Expedia is a very well known business when it comes to scraping the net for good information and prices. Over time I found that Expedia can often offer the best prices and that several smaller business are included in their database. One of the greatest thing about Expedia is the disposition of the results. All the information is compacted in a matrix where you can see an overall of the prices in different categories.
Hotwire Car Rental:
Hotwire always comes up with brilliant ideas that differentiates them from the rest of the market. They became popular due to their ”hotel suprise booking” system where you only know the hotel once you have paid. When it comes to car they do a great job. They put emphasis on the ”Special Car” concept; this guarantee you a bigger and more expensive car at the price of one of the small regular one. Once at the car rental office you will be informed of the model.
Priceline Car Rental:
Priceline is one of the best search engine out there for car rental. They seem to have taken the best elements from their competitors and mashed it all up in their brilliant website. They also like to add a touch of humor to their search system. Well presented, clean, efficient and compact they allow users to get quickly what they want: the best price.
Comparing The Car Rental Price:
When comparing all the different companies we can observe in this case that Kayak has the best deal (21% cheaper then the 3 other websites). In another case it could have been a different site offering the best price; this is why it is important to very the price with many of them. You save almost 60$ In this case the best option would be HotWire to get a bigger model for the same price (if gas price is not going to be an issue of course.) I’ts also very important to check everyday as there is a lot of fluctuation in car rental price.
