Don’t Rent a GPS – Renting a GPS can cost ten to twenty dollars a day. Instead of paying this amount, why don’t you just bring your own GPS? There’s a good chance that you own a GPS, and since it’s probably no bigger than five inches in length, it’s easy to bring with you and use while you are driving around Las Vegas.
Inspect Your Car for Damage – It only takes a few minutes, but it can save you a lot of money. Before you leave the parking lot of the rental car company, be sure to walk all the way around your car and look for damage. If you see any, either write it down on the sheet you were given, or tell the parking lot attendant when you are leaving, who will write it down for you. You don’t want to get hit with a large bill for someone else’s damage, so make sure this is a tip you don’t forget.
Book a Small Car – Unless you need a large car for something specific, you can get the best deals by booking a compact car. It may not be the sexiest style of car, but it will save you a lot of money.
Don’t Procrastinate Booking – Waiting until right before your trip to book a rental car is going to cost you more than if you make your reservation a few months in advance. Since there’s no penalty for changing your reservation, you’re best bet is to make an early reservation, and if you need to change it for any reason, you can easily do so.
Use a Coupon or Discount Code – The Internet is full of money saving codes, so take five minutes to find one that works, and then use it to save money when you book your vehicle!
