Tips for Renting a Car

I have learned through my experience that when you go on a trip abroad, the best option for transport is to rent a car. Its very convenient and you are saved from the hassles of catching a train or bus or ferry on time. Vacations are to be enjoyed and renting a car gives you the freedom to move around on your on leisurely speed. Here are some tips for renting cars:
- If you are traveling with family, then you need a big vehicle, look for child seat in the car.
-Make sure the car has GPS, it will help you navigate through the unfamiliar roads of a new city.
- Read all the term and conditions carefully and, if possible, check with the company on the restrictions.
-Ask them if you will have to pay full, half or a percentage of the booked amount if you are unable to rent the car.
-Enquire about discounts on frequent flier miles or any other programs.
- If you are a frequent traveler, join a loyalty program of the car rental company that you most often use.
I have been using side step. Its a search engine for travelers. Side step provides a wide variety of options for renting cars in different cities by searching through more than two hundred travel related sites. When my husband went to Chicago for a friend’s wedding, we used side step to rent a car in Chicago and it was a satisfying trip. From then on, we search through side step whenever we have to make a trip.It rummages all the deals and comes up with the best offers on hotels, flights and car rentals. I have uploaded side step travel toolbar to save time in searching various travel options.
