    Summer is a good time for vacations, and it is usually the time that many people decide to take their time off from work and go on one. A main concern when you are on vacation are rentals for a car. If you are flying somewhere or going on a trip that is long enough to make wear and tear on your own vehicle a concern, this is the option that many people choose. There are many things to watch for, however, when renting a car, if you want to spend the least amount of money possible for the best deals.

    Of course, as with many things, weekend rates are usually much cheaper than weekday rates. If at all possible, it is best to try to go with these rates when you are vacationing or using car rentals . Of course it is hard to try to work your entire vacation around this, but if it is in your power, you should definitely opt for weekend. Many times the weekend rates can be as low as half, or even less, of what the week day rates would be. And if you are going to be using your car for a week or more, many companies have even better deals if you go with a weekly plan.

    Everyone says to always get insurance when you are driving car rentals . This is true, but only in part. Make sure you know what your personal car insurance covers when it comes to rentals for cars. It could possibly cover something like liability, damage to another person or vehicle in a rented car. This is something that many companies will try to offer you, but you definitely do not want to duplicate coverage and pay double for something you already have through your personal insurance.

    Try to book a car early. This seems like a given, but it is easy to put it off and just take for granted that there will be a car available when you need it. Remember that other people will vacation at the same time as you, and other people will be booking ahead. It is best to beat the rush and not procrastinate, especially for something like a vacation where the last thing you want is to be stranded somewhere instead of enjoying yourself.

    Many companies offer free upgrades to larger vehicles. This is something you only want to take advantage of if you have a genuine need for a bigger vehicle. If you are only getting it because it is bigger and it is free, think again. It may cost the same as a smaller vehicle at the get go, but you will definitely be paying more in gas most of the time for a larger car, and with gas prices skyrocketing all around the country, this is exactly what you do not need to add more to your vacation expenses.

    The last thing you should think of when looking to rent a car is fairly obvious. It is simply to compare, compare, compare! Mostly the internet is the best option for this. It can offer you a multitude of sites for car rentals with competing prices, which is basically a guarantee that you will find something low enough for you to afford. No matter what else you choose to do, this is something you should not forgo.
