http://www.reducemyexcess.co.uk/mone...ffiliate&0-10=


A few tips:

1. Extras: You can save a lot of money by bringing your own extras.

It's the little things in life that count, isn't it, and that's true for rental cars and the fees. Need a child seat or a GPS system? Want to listen to the radio? Save yourself the $! Whenever possible...pack your own traveling extras and be sure to have the rental company remove theirs - from the car and the bill - before you drive off the lot!

2. Pictures: When you get your car, walk around it and look for damage if you see ANY...take a few pics with your phone. It's a good thing to have as PROOF in case the hire company tries to say you did it We also take a few pics right before we return the car as well.

3. Check, check, check everything! BEFORE you sign your receipt make sure you know what you're signing as those car hire people can be sneaky and add on things even when you said NO!

4. Contact Details!
Make sure you have the car hire company's contact details with you at all times in case of an emergency!


5. Call the car hire company to check prices.
I have noticed that websites like RentalCars.com hold back some of their better offers so it is worth it to ring them up and ask them what's the best offer they have for your dates. Oh and they WILL price match so if you see a better offer somewhere else but feel more secure in booking with them...go fo it


6. If you want to get ahold of one of the companies for whatever reason (link a booking, bad experience etc.)
Try their facebook page and send them a message! They are usually fairly quick to respond. You can also just look and see what is going on with the company...such as new arrival of cars/Suvs etc.

8. After you arrive home...
Check your card statement and make sure that no unauthorised extras have been charged to your card.

Range Rover C6 WFDR, EFAR (Includes Sport and Evoque models; 20 mpg)




Avis: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/avis-...ars-class.html
Avis and Budget are a group so they can have a similar fleet.

Dollar/Thrifty: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/hertz...t-you-get.html
Dollar and Hertz are the same as Avis and Budget in regards to sharing. They can have a similar fleet.


A description of rental codes and some examples of Cars/Suvs you may get...

WHAT KIND OF FUEL DOES MY CAR/SUV TAKE?

America's primary fuel is unleaded. So when filling up your vehicle at gas stations look for number 87 and or word UNLEADED on the pump. (as you can see in picture). If you have a *special* vehicle though do read the manual just in case.



Will you be using a Sunpass?
Are you going to be going through tolls? Some may be prefer to pay cash but other renters like to use the *SunPass*.
You can find out how much the Sunpass will cost with each car hire company here: www.sunpass.com/rentalcar
If you DO NOT use Sunpass and go through the cash lanes...PLEASE keep your receipts as sometimes the car hire companies may try to charge you for a toll when in fact you paid it in cash!
Here's a photo of the signs to look out for... so if you use the Sunpass..you will keep LEFT and for Cash...keep RIGHT


Boot space and luggage
Boot space can of course vary by car but I will post a pic in a few categories to help you decide which car may be best for you and your family but do note you aren't guaranteed this exact model so in my opinion if you are really unsure...go up a category. You can also go to the *sticky* in this forum to check out which cars people have been getting

On to the boots...

I have used Alamo's fleet as a guide.

Economy - Chevrolet Spark



Compact - Nissan Versa



Intermediate - Toyota Corolla


Fullsize - Chevrolet Impala



Standard - Chrysler 200



Premium - Nissan Maxima


Intermediate SUV - Ford Escape


Minivan - Dodge Grand Caravan



Standard SUV - Jeep Grand Cherokee


Fullsize SUV - Chevrolet Tahoe


Premium SUV - Chevrolet Suburban


Convertible - Mustang

Thanks Hope it helps some of you Dibbers in the future!

As far as making it a sticky...would be a good idea but doubt they will. Just have to keep bumping it
