Car rental payment

Price is one of the main factors to consider when renting a car, and "how to rent a cheap car" is one of the first questions we are asked. There is no one answer to this question, as many variables go into the price of a car rental. Over the years, customers have found that the price advertised initially is often different from what they end up paying. It is therefore important to know how the pricing works and how to avoid paying the high price.
 

Basic tips for renting a cheap car

1. Book in advance

Reserving two weeks in advance usually gives the best results. Try to look a month before your departure, and then again regularly as the date approaches.
 

2. Book any day

There is no better day to reserve your rental car, so choose the day that displays a price you think is suitable. The average price for a car rental in Pakistan is around $ 30, but you may be able to find cheaper deals depending on the city.
 

3. Consider an upgrade

Upgrading may seem counterintuitive because it doesn't necessarily get the lowest price. However, you might find that the price difference between an economy, mini, or compact car and an SUV or full-size car justifies the investment.
 

4. Request a pickup and drop-off at the same location

Pickup and drop-off at the same location will always be cheaper than pickup and drop-off at different locations. The same location pickup and drop-off at the airport tend to be cheaper than at stations located in town.
 

5. Fill up with fuel before returning the car.

The best way to save on rental car expenses is to save on petrol before returning the vehicle. The price you pay to refuel yourself will usually be less than the price the rental company will charge you for the same amount of fuel.

Professional tips for renting a cheap car

1. Use your credit card

You can enjoy car rental deals directly or indirectly, depending on the type of credit card you have. Indeed, some payment cards offer advantages or reductions if you rent a vehicle from a partner rental agency.
 

2. Book through an airline

If you intend to rent a car in Islamabad or any other city in Pakistan, be sure to check the booking portal of the airline you are traveling with. Most airlines have partnered with car rental companies and have rewards/points programs in place.
 

3. Watch for cross-border charges

If you plan to cross national borders, you need to make sure that the car can do it and cost. Cross-border commissions depend on the countries involved, so check the terms and conditions of your rental agreement.
 

4. Check with your insurance company

Another option is to check with your insurance company if you are entitled to certain benefits as an insured.
 

How to find a good deal for a car rental abroad

1. Don't forget the other tips

Most of the tips above for finding a good deal on a rental car also apply when you are abroad. It is necessary to read all the Terms and Conditions for different countries terms and conditions, but many of these principles will apply.
 

2. Rent a manual transmission car

This advice only applies if you already know how to handle a manual transmission and have a lot of experience in this area. In Europe, manual transmissions are the norm, and renting a vehicle with an automatic transmission usually incurs additional charges as they are less common and are sometimes only available in larger or taller cars range.
 

3. Watch for cross-border charges

If you plan to cross national borders, you need to make sure that the car can do it and cost. Cross-border commissions depend on the countries involved, so check the terms and conditions of your rental agreement.
 

4. Bring your child car seat

The child car seat is an obligation that you cannot neglect if you plan to rent a car abroad. Traveling with your child's seat can seem complicated, but most airlines allow you to bring one for free with a stroller - it won't count towards your baggage allowance. This is a way to save money if you don't want to book one with a car rental company.
 

5. Book with one driver

It is more comfortable distributing the miles among several drivers over a long trip, but additional drivers mean additional costs for your rental car. Look at if your rental company provides a second free driver or whether you can add one only on days when you have travel plans.
 

6. Watch the time

It depends on the rental, but it's usually best to drop your car off at the same time you picked it up. This way, you will avoid being charged a whole extra day if you return the vehicle after the cut-off time.
