Hidden Agendas

Always make sure you read the terms and conditions carefully before confirming your reservation. This goes especially if you are booking your car online.

Understanding all the conditions of your reservation is crucial and it might save you loads of money.

If you don’t understand some of the terms, ask the agent about them.

This is crucial for liability reasons, of course. Safe side is always THE place to be when it comes to these deals.

Also, make sure there are no hidden costs. The price rates you see advertised in big print are often just a tip of the iceberg. Ask about state and local taxes, airport surcharges, additional driver fees, insurance, gasoline bills and drop-off charges.
