Don’t rent a car from the airport
More people driving means more expenses
Additionally, there are extra fees for drivers who are under 25. In some cases, some agencies don’t even allow anyone younger than 25 to rent or drive any of their cars. If you (or your extra driver) is under 21, there will be even more fees, due to being so young an age.
Make sure to think through exactly what you want to do
It’s always better to have a clear view of what you want to do, rather than try to figure out what you want to do/get done when you arrive. There are several things you can do to help you get a better idea of what you want to do:
• Research the location of where you will be, and what you can do there
• Determine what financial assistance is available while on this trip
• Find expertise and help before you leave
• Use an embassy, foreign office, or overseas connections (if your trip is international)
Do you have a GPS system or a child seat for your young one? It is usually better to bring those things with you as if you ask the rental agency for them, they’ll add on high associated fees to every extra thing they let you borrow.
Stay on paved roads
While this seems like a no-brainer, it’s one most people don’t even realize is a policy. When you rent a car, most agencies have a clause in their agreement that says you keep the car on paved roads. So make sure you read and remember all the policies and rules in the rental agreement.When going on a business trip, it isn’t that hard to rent a car. Just make sure to research what you want to do, and follow the clauses and policies you agree to, keeping your costs as low as you want them to be, and you should be set to go.
