Thrifty Reminders when Renting a Vehicle

thrifty reminders

Renting a vehicle can help you save a lot of money but you could save a lot more if you follow these thrifty reminders:

  • Avoid Sunday rentals

Picking up vehicles on Sundays is more expensive compared to renting from Monday to Saturday. Most rental companies in the UK, like Gatwick Car Hire, are closed throughout Sunday. If you are going on a weekend trip, schedule to pick up the vehicle on a Friday or Saturday.

  • Book early

Book the vehicle that you want to rent as soon as you have finalised your holiday plans. There are companies that give discounts or packages to early birds. You can book a vehicle from Choice Vehicle Rentals via their website.

  • Know the difference between full-size and large cars

People are often confused with the differences between full-size and large cars. Full-size cars have less seating capacity compared to large cars. The latter can cater to 5 passengers and has enough space for luggage. However, the former is better when it comes to the exterior appearance. So if you are going on a long trip with your family, it is better to choose a large car instead of a full-size car.

  • Choose diesel engine vehicles

Choose a diesel engine vehicle if you want to save more on fuel costs. These vehicles are not noisy smelly or under-powered.

  • Always return the car with a full tank of fuel

Do not return the vehicle with an empty tank because the rental company can charge you twice or even thrice the amount of the fuel you actually used.

  • Take advantage of discounts

There are rental companies that offer discounts. If you find a deal, grab it as soon as possible to save more money.

Call 01293-825-149 and speak to one of the lovely people at Choice Vehicle Rentals. For Gatwick Car hire, email your enquiries to gatwick@choicevehiclerentals.com.
