We like to travel. We usually take our vehicle and travel, but these days with the gas prices, it’s about the same to fly. This past August we headed to Myrtle Beach and we rented a car when we landed. It seemed like a far better deal then taking 2 days to drive and using the gas in our truck. We actually rented a compact car since it was only hubby and I. We are going to be going again in July/August time frame, so we are planning to fly, this time with the kids and getting a rental car. The last time we rented we just went through the company itself. I am not sure that we made the right choice with that because I recently looked at prices on Usave and I think we over paid last time.
When you browse on Usave, you can see the different types of vehicles; compact, full size, truck, etc. They also have an app so you can easily check and see what is available in the area you are in or will be visiting. I love companies with apps. It makes things so much easier for me. With airport locations and international locations, there should be no trouble getting into a rental at a nice discounted price. We will definitely be using this service when we head down to Myrtle Beach this summer. I think we will need bigger then a compact car, since we will have the kids and my mom, but I am looking forward to a discounted, more budget friendly rental car. There are no surprises, you can view your dates for pick up and drop off, as well as prices for the type of vehicle you want or need for your trip.
Do you use rental companies for vehicles when you travel? How do you hear about the different companies? Do you tend to go to the “compact” car because of the cheaper cost or do you get what you know will be big enough?
