If you need a temporary way to get around, you need to consider car rental. You might want to rent a car while you are on vacation, or you might just want a change of pace. Sometimes, unfortunately, you may need a rental while your car is being repaired.
Whatever you need a car rental for, doing a little homework can save you a lot of money.
If a vacation is in your future, browse the major car rental brands for deals, and also check for local deals at your destination. If you use a travel agent to plan your trip they can help you arrange for a car, often with steep discounts, and if you are a member of a travel organization or club you may qualify for a discount there, too.
