Don't forget about the CAA Car Rental Discount that's yours for the
taking as a paid member of the Canadian Automobile Association.
Traveling can be so expense!
I know first hand, having spent much of the last 20 years on the road, both domestically and internationally.
The costs just seem to add up in the blink of an eye, so it's always a good idea to save money whenever and wherever you possibly can.
It's not always the most economical choice to rent a car for your
travels, but believe it or not, there are times when it really does pay.
On a long trip, a car that gets better fuel mileage can be a significant savings, not to mention the wear and tear that you may be saving your own vehicle from enduring.
Of course, sometimes car rental is just a simple necessity. If you fly to your destination and need the flexibility of getting around on your own, renting a car is a convenience that makes your life so much easier than trying to coordinate public transport, or being dependent on others for a ride.
CAA car insurance is great, and we've already mentioned in previous articles many of the other CAA discounts and benefits that come with your membership in the CAA Auto club. Today I just wanted to remind you that on top of the CAA auto insurance savings, there are some significant car rental discounts that you can get as well.
CAA has a special relationship set up with Hertz to provide their members with added bonus features and savings if they choose Hertz when renting a car. Apart from the discount rate, you may also be able to take advantage of the following extras...
I'm a stickler for saving money, so I would definitely check out the savings available with the CAA car rental discount through Hertz, but I wouldn't stop there.
Hertz may very well offer you the best price, but do check around, just in case. Competition has become pretty fierce in this economy, so I'd compare prices with Enterprise, Thrifty, Budget, National, Alamo, or Avis, just to be sure I was getting the most bang for my buck!
Here's an added tip. You can often get a better price when renting a car, if you book your car rental online! ;~)
