The travel industry is an increasingly competitive market with a growing number of self-reliant trip planners who surf the internet extensively for car rental comparison tools in order to find the best value on travel services. Aspiring globetrotters can easily find themselves overwhelmed with the amount of web-based car rental comparison sites that are jockeying for their business. Why not save yourself time AND money by choosing Auto Europe, where we specialize in providing economical pricing, exceptional service and versatile car rental availability?
When preparing to compare rental car rates, it's good to know how renting a car for different spans of time will affect your rental car cost. First, if you're considering renting a car for a short period of time, you'll often have a wider range of availability and rates to choose from than if you were renting a car for at least three days or more. Sometimes, the three-day car rental will also be less expensive than a one-day rental would be. Auto Europe's pricing for five, six and seven-day rental cars are typically all considered a weekly car rental rate, so if you're trying to decide whether or not to rent a car for an extra day or two, keep this in mind.
If you're considering one-way international travel, it's a good idea to compare car rental rates to decide from which direction you should start your trip! Let's use one-way travel between Italy and France as an example. By picking up your car rental in Italy you're automatically required to take an inclusive insurance rate as mandated by the Italian government. If you pick up the rental car in France, however, you can choose to take either the basic rate, and use the credit card of the primary driver to cover the inclusive car rental insurance (subject to availability), or take the collision damage waiver (CDW) and theft protection (TP) at the time you make the car rental reservation. This is the first aspect that can be priced out.
Next you'll want to do a car rental comparison for the applicable one-way fee itself, starting from each country. You'll be surprised how different they might be. Also include in the sum the local fees like daily road taxes, additional drivers, young driver surcharges, etc.
Are you tossing around the idea of forgoing traditional car rental services in lieu of a luxury vehicle? Auto Europe can easily compare rental car rates for your chosen itinerary so you can decide whether driving a luxury or sports car rental is worth the price over renting a more conventional rental car.
If you have an important event or activity that you're attending, another option is to utilize Auto Europe's chauffeur services. We arrange transportation in a luxury vehicle with an English speaking driver who will pick you up and drop you off at your respective locations.
