Here’s 4 top tips from our Reservations Team on saving money when renting a car.

  1. Book ahead – the early you book the better the rate (and wider the vehicle choice) and with no deposit or cancellation fee there’s nothing to lose.
  2. Compare Rental Company rates – Comparison websites such as DriveNow allow you to do this for free and provide a free booking service.
  3. Return the car with a full tank of fuel – rental companies charge a premium for filling up returned vehicles with less than full fuel tanks.
  4. Excess Insurance reduction options – many travel insurance packages and even some credit cards include free excess insurance cover which can save you up to $30 a day.
