4 Tips for Finding a Cheap Car Rental

Cheap Car Rental TipsWhether you’re traveling in or out of Newark, NJ, you don’t want to spend more than you have to on a rental car. You likely have accommodations, attractions, dinners, shopping, and more to consider. If a cheap car rental is what you seek, consider these tips from our crew at Value Van & Car Rental of New Jersey.

1. Know your budget.

You’re less likely to overspend on a car or van rental if you know what you can afford. Make sure you determine your rental budget before you start shopping around. That way, you won’t be tempted by offers outside your price range.

2. Go local.

Often, local car rental companies (like Value Van) will meet or beat the rental rates of those larger conglomerates. Plus, you get that hometown customer service that you can’t find just anywhere.

3. Consider coupons.

Do a little digging online, or call the car rental company directly. You never know what kind of coupons, offers, or discounts might be available to you—advertised or not. At Value Van, we have special offers directly on our website, making our cheap car rentals even more affordable.

4. Don’t get roped into luxury.

Unless you can find an insane deal, it’s not likely that a luxury sports car is going to be your most economical option. Choose the vehicle, whether a car, SUV, or minivan, that meets your needs without going overboard. Focus on function instead of flash and fanciness.

At Value Van, we’ve found these few tips help travelers like you get an inexpensive rental car so you can focus on the trip rather than how you’ll get there. We also do our best to keep our rental rates low. Whether you’re renting an SUV or a conversion van, we want to make sure our rates are competitive and affordable.
