Booking Your Car. . . . 1:- Book in advance, Rental rates are nearly always higher at the counter than they will be over the phone, even just 24 hours before pickup. If you have time, Visit the Web sites of several rental agencies and search for one and the same cars on your travel dates. 2:- Whenever possible, make all car rental preparations, from booking to payment, before you leave the home. It will make the process cheaper, easier, safer and less likely to include hidden clauses. Once you are abroad, shifting switch rates, unfamiliar rental specs, language barriers and other artistic differences can cause surprising troubles. 3:- Ask about weekend specials, late penalties and gas charges. Many hidden discounts or hidden costs not be explained at the time of deal, and it may be too late once you come across with it. 4:- Ask about expected drop-off time. Many rental agencies begin charging for each 24-hour-period from the time of rental, and will bill a full day for returned after another 24-hour period begins. 5:- When making reservations for car rental pickups at an airport, choose a smaller car than you would typically desire. Airport fleets are often stocked with larger cars, as they are primarily used by business travelers, and you will often receive a free upgrade from a subcompact booking. 6:- Most European cars have manual transmissions, although automatic cars can be found, often at a price. If you can drive a stick shift, it could save you money and hassles. Driving in Europe is often more strenuous than driving in the home, as back roads and even some highways lean to be hilly, winding and often precariously placed on a mountainside or ocean cliff. International Driving Permits Many countries will ask you to obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP), which is just a piece of paper that translates your information into 10 different languages and is recognized by over 150 countries. If you are planning to rent a car abroad, you may be asked to present one along with your regular state license. You must be at least 18 years old to get an IDP. To get the IDP go down to your local AAA with two passport photos (with your signature on the back of each) and a copy of your state-issued license. You have to pay fees of $15 for a one-year issue and fill out an application. Beware of phony IDP’s! Only two agencies in the U.S. are authorized to issue IDP’s: the American Automobile Association and the American Automobile Touring Alliance. verify with the consulate or embassy of the country you’re visiting to find out their policies on international drivers. Know Before You Go 1:- Make sure you have a sensible idea of how much you’ll pay to fuel your car in the country you’re visiting. Generally, drivers in the U.S. pay less at the pump than drivers in most other nations. Leave plenty of space in your funds for gas cost. 2:- Familiarize yourself with the local rules of the road well before you actually get into the car. Study up on traffic rules and regulation. The finest sources for this type of information are the country’s consulate or embassy, or an up-to-date manual. 3:- Check with your auto insurance company to see whether a rental car abroad would be covered under your current policy. Unless you’ll need to purchase insurance from your rental car company at the time of deal . Be sure that your coverage meets the visiting country’s minimum coverage requirements. 4:- Don’t forget your map, the security of having a detailed road map or atlas is more than worth the price you’ll pay for it. If you have a GPS, you can download international maps (for a fee) on your GPS provider Web site. Most car rentals offer GPS rentals, so check the GPS rental rates for your rental car before you purchase an international map from your GPS provider. Rates to rent a GPS are charged per day or per week; for a two-day car rental, you will be better off renting a GPS and paying.
