Booking Car Rental Online

Tenerife Car Rental.When using the internet to find and book car hire, consumers are able to quickly compare prices from car hire firms across the globe. With all of this at your fingertips, booking online could not be easier. However, there are some dangers to be aware of.
There are many companies offering car hire, and with fierce competition like this, customers need to be savvy when it comes to booking car hire.

Make sure you understand what is included in the price. In many cases, the price you end up paying is much higher than the price initially quoted. This is the result of additional charges such as Collision Damage Waiver (which reduces or removes the Insurance Excess liability), airport surcharges, local taxes and many other hidden costs.
Below are the tips how to make booking car hire online , which will help you make the most of using the internet to book car hire.

1. Book through a broker, the price will probably be much cheaper and you get additional customer support which is sometimes not provided if you book directly with a rental company.

2. If the car hire company takes payment on arrival, investigate the currency exchange rate that they have used for their quote. You could end up paying a lot more if the company is using an incorrect exchange rate.

3. Make sure you book a vehicle that is suitable for your needs. Obvious things to consider are the luggage capacity, size of vehicle, number of doors and seats.

4. Make sure that you fully understand what is included in the price. Most companies will have an Insurance Excess amount which will be charged in the event of damage or theft. This may not be clearly indicated in the booking process.

5. Make sure you read the terms and conditions for the car hire provider and all of the details that accompany your quotation. This will ensure that you can compare quotations on a like-for-like basis to ensure that you get the best deal.

6. Before you book, make a note of the company's telephone number. Never rely on just an email address.

7. When you make the booking, make sure that the website is secure. You can do this by checking to see if the website address starts with 'https' which indicates that the website is secure.

8. When your booking is complete, print out and keep all of the booking details. This can include pages from the website and any emails that you receive about the booking.

9. Always check the cancellation and amendment policies in place. Many companies charge for cancellations and amendments.

10. A credit card is normally required when you collect the vehicle, so if you are in possession of a debit card only, you will need to check that this is acceptable. Most companies do not accept cash for security reasons.

Although comparison websites save you a lot of time, do not always rely on the prices that they list, always read the terms and conditions with the actual provider.

Car Rental Rates And How To Take Advantage Of Them

Tenerife Car Rental.Car rental rates are usually governed to some extent by length of rental so you can get hourly rates, daily rates, weekly rates, even monthly rates if you plan to rent a car as an alternative to short term leasing. In between all of these there are also things like special “weekend” rates (which can be as long as 4 days) and a range of other rates depending on when the rental company needs to move it’s fleet around.

All very interesting you might think, but how does that benefit you? Well, just having an idea that this is how the rates work means that with a little flexibility in your travel arrangements you could save yourself a lot of money.

To demonstrate this, let’s take an example of two rental requests with very small differences to the rental but huge impact to the cost.

1. Rental 1 Check out on Thursday morning at 11:30 am Return on Monday at 12:30pm

2. Rental 2 Check out on Thursday at 12:00 noon Return on Monday at 11:30am

While the two rentals look very similar they would be charged very differently. For instance Car Hire Company X will charge Rental 1 out as a 5 day rental on their daily rates, but Rental 2 from the same company would be a 4 day rental on their discounted weekend rates. So, half an hour or so adjustments to your journey can make a big difference.
