Re-shop your car rental rate a week before your trip
Clark’s secret for getting the cheapest rental car rates start with booking a vehicle at the time he books air travel. Then one week before the trip, he checks the rates again to see if he can grab a better deal at a lower price.
Car rental fees are completely refundable, so he doesn’t lose anything if he cancels the original booking.
“You can end up cutting the cost of a rental car by half or more by re-shopping it the week of your trip,” Clark says.
