Everyone always considers what he or she buys or consumers basing on how much he or she is spending on each item thus making one a rational consumer. Customers or consumers always opt for services that are at affordable prices since money is a scarce resource. And of course people that make use of these car rental services always wanted to use less for more benefit on their trips.
Some of the simple ways on how to save money on car rentals are provided below;

Try avoiding big car rental companies

It is a fact that big car rental agencies always raise their standards and at times and ends up charging high prices for the car hire services even when these services are similar with medium companies. They are always fixed and do not appeal to everyone. Look for small car hire companies in your destination of interest for the best quote and good services. It is true that small and medium car rental companies provide comfortable and full packages because they always take their customers to be precious since they may not have a flow of customers at a given time. And though they are small or medium Agencies, they offer similar car rental services as big companies.

Consider companies that give discounts

Travelers always consider this to be a greatest way of saving money as you are given car hire services at reduced price. Companies always give discount coupons to their loyal customers in a specified period of time of traveling and also to clients that hire cars for long period of time. This always acts as one of the ways of promotion.

Deal with relatively small cars

Of course smaller cars are cheaper than big cars but this depends on the size of your travel mass, for example if you are traveling like a family, you can opt to a small car. But if you are travelling alone or few people, there is no need of travelling by a big car. A small car can serve you the same purpose and at a cheaper price. A live example is Toyota Rav4 Vs Toyota Prado, renting a Rav4 is cheaper than renting a Prado but they serve almost similar purpose, they are both 4 wheel drive (4wd), and the maintenance cost as well as cost of fuel is cheaper with a Toyota Rav4.

Consider long term rates

Try putting into consideration renting a car for a long period of time like two (02) weeks or more. The longer the hiring time, the less the cost incurred. This is because car hire companies tend to give some discounts to customers who hire cars for a long period of time.

Opt for travel packages

If you are going for a vacation in Southern or Eastern Africa and you opt to hire a car for self drive to facilitate transportation services, always do it with a tour and travel company because they work hand in hand with car rental Agencies in order to simplify some work for the traveler. By using a tour and travel agent you will have around your tour items all booked at once; that is, accommodation, car, entry fees and food and these always come with a discount. Further more, Travel Agencies can book for you a car and a professional driver / tour guide at a very low price, and all items mentioned above can be booked for you at a discounted price unlike when you book them by your self. In other words, tour operators are given discount on some items on the safari like accommodation and entry permits, and a discount can not be given to you as an individual.
