How to Save Money While Renting a Car
Renting a car can feel like a hassle, but it doesn't need to. With a few tips and a couple of moments of your time, you'll be armed with some extra information to make it easy to rent a car.
- Book on a Tuesday or Wednesday: we frequently put new deals up on those days and sometimes you'll find our Hot Deals are lower than other days.
- Bookmark our Deals page: keep it handy on your cell phone browser so you'll bypass the rest of the site in order to see our new coupons first.
- Join our Facebook community: sometimes we put up coupon codes that aren't posted anywhere else! If you follow our page, you'll be amongst the first to see. We also have cool giveaways!
- Follow us on Twitter at FoxRentCar: not only do we share some great travel articles and resources, but we let you know when you can get a lower Pay Now rate, a higher discount on premium cars and deals on all our vehicles as they occur.
- Don’t rent more car than you need: if it's just two of you on a spontaneous getaway weekend, consider getting an economy model. Gas prices are cheaper and you'll save on your daily rate. If you're in a busy city and it's your first time, sometimes parking is a learned skill, so you'll save money and you'll have less difficulty parking. We have an extensive list of vehicles to choose from.
- Join our Fox Rewards loyalty program, where each rental booked directly through Fox can go towards discounts or even free rentals in the future, or a SuperCertificate at GiftCertificates.com.
- When you pick up your vehicle, make sure you're comfortable with all the fees. There are some mandatory fees that the travel and hospitality industry must add, but things like a GPS and extra insurance, amongst others, are optional. Speak with your insurance company before renting to verify your coverage. Using GPS on your phone or your own roadside assistance program can save you even more money.
- If you have questions, please feel free to ask us via our Live Chat option, or visit our Contact Us page.
