If you are looking for a cheap discount car rental look no further because Bestfares.com has got you covered.
Budget rent a car has offered us some tremendous discounts to get you a cheap car rental.
One important tip is to try to make sure your return time is close to the same time as or earlier than your arrival time because car rental companies charges are based on a 24-hour period.
Once you exceed your 24 hours, they usually give you up to a 30-minute grace period but after that they start charging by the hour. If you return your car three hours after your original pickup time of day, believe it or not, they will charge you for another full day.
I usually try to arrive at the airport up to two hours before departure when I'm renting a car. This gives me ample time to return the car and go through TSA, etc. On my recent trip to Tampa/Clearwater I picked up my car at 4:30 p.m. on a Thursday. My return trip was at 2:40 p.m. on Monday.
Our free weekend car rental discount applies to cars picked after noon on Thursday and returned by 11:59 p.m. on Monday. In my case, the car was rented for four days. This qualified me for two discounts.
The first one from Bestfares.com was for a percentage off. For the second discount, I was able to double dip and get one car rental day for free. I have used this double dip coupon at least 10 times in the past year. I can't tell you how many of my friends have used this discount.
On my latest trip, the car rental was $161 for four days for a midsize car. (Remember, the discount only applies to compact up to full size cars). It took about two minutes, but my $161 four-day rental rate dropped to $116. That's 45 bucks. Now that was nice.
