Renting a car sometimes can be an on-the-fly decision. If you’ve got a road trip coming up or if your car is in the shop, you might not have put too much thought into which rental car is the right choice for you. But contrary to this belief, understanding which car is best for you can actually help you save money.
There are a lot of big-name rental companies all over the world. We know the names, they’re big franchises that aren’t necessarily looking out for your best interest. But Savannah Car Rentals is different. We care about our customers and want to see them drive away in a car that’s right for them. This means you! We want to help you in renting the best car to fit your needs.
We’ve identified some ways in which you can decide which car is the best for you and your family.
Understand all the perks and discounts you’re entitled to
We’ve got a few different types of discounts for drivers. Students receive 10% OFF with their ID. Military veterans and active duty receive among the highest rental car discounts in the industry at 15% OFF. You can also add additional items to your rentals like GPS or insurance that protects you and other drivers. Understanding all the perks of your rental car is the first step in choosing which is best for you.
Consider your mileage and the need for your trip
Are you driving a long solo trip? Or are you bringing a family of five across the country? These situations can impact the total cost of your trip. Consider which cars have the best mileage, or are most effective for what you need. If you’re in need of a truck and don’t need to travel, then mileage probably isn’t at the time of your mind. But if you’ve got a long-haul trip ahead, you may want to consider how good the car is on mileage and what you’ll pay.
Savannah Car Rentals has unlimited mileage on all our rentals, so no matter how far you go, you won’t have to pay us! Just the cost of filling the tanks.
Returning your rental car
When you return your car, we recommend returning with a full tank of gas to avoid any fees that you’ll have to pay for gas. Pick a time that works best for you! We’re flexible with return days and times, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you.
Make sure you do a final sweep of the car as well. Make sure that the car is free of any and all personal belongings! You can also tell us anything you’d like that happened on your trip, we’re happy to do a final walkthrough with you — pending our hours of operation.
Renting a car can be exciting! Especially if you’re about to head out on a family trip. Choosing the right car is important in guaranteeing your trip is off to a good start. If you’re ready to book your car rental, check out our available factory-fresh models!
