1. Look for Online Discounts
Try typing in the name of a rental company and “coupon code” into Google. Rental car companies offer discount codes to members of frequent flier programs, AAA, Cosco and BJ’s, so check those sites if you’re a member. Most major car rental companies allow you to combine discount codes with a coupon code and save more!
2. Think about joining your car rental company’s loyalty program. Most are free and provide certain privileges. Plus, your information will be on file ahead of time, allowing you to get in the car and go rather than standing in a long line or filling out paperwork. You could also be eligible for special discounts or free upgrades.
3. Prepay The Rental
Rental car companies are offering discounts of up to 20 percent to travelers willing to prepay.
