Tips for saving on a car hire with Auto Europe

Fortunately, the times when a car was considered a luxury belong to the past. Today, it is next to impossible to go through our daily lives without a car. Having gotten used to the comfort a car gives us, we do not want to give it up during our holidays. Luckily, we can use car rental services and hire a car in almost any destination worldwide. Car rental gives us the freedom to travel wherever we want without having to give up the comfort we've gotten used to. And, in the end, when you choose to book your car hire with Auto Europe, it will turn out to be cheaper in comparison to public transportation.



We have prepared some additional tips for saving on a car hire, which will help you profit even more from your next car hire experience.

Infographic - Tips for saving on a car rental


The first tip: Pick up the car at a downtown location instead of an airport location


Pick up the car at a downtown location

Picking up a car at a downtown location will help you save up to 30%, and usually one can easily find their way to the city centre from the airport.



The second tip: Book a manual instead of an automatic.


Many clients, when driving in a foreign country, prefer to book an automatic car "just in case". If you can and do drive a car with manual transmission at home, do not give it up only because you are in a foreign country. The price of a car rental with manual transmission in European countries is usually cheaper, and the number of such cars is much larger as well.


Next tip: Make use of our upgrades


Auto Europe offers a great variety of upgrades. Before booking a large car, have a look at our upgrades and make use of them. Another advantage of a smaller car is that it needs less fuel.


Our tip: Pay attention to fuel and if possible, book full to full


Pay attention to the fuel policy


Speaking of fuel, when booking, please do pay attention to the fuel policy. Usually it is better to pay a little more for a package with a full to full fuel option, as in the end you will profit, since you are paying only for the fuel you've used.




So, our tip: Try to avoid additional equipment locally


Additional equipment brings additional costs. Why pay for a GPS if your mobile phone has the same function! And buying a booster seat is usually cheaper then its daily rental price.

Our tip: Always book in advance.


We usually plan our holidays and book flight tickets and hotels months in advance, leaving car rental to the last minute. This is a mistake. When booking last minute, the number of available cars is very low, which cannot be said of the price, the latter tending to be the higher the closer the pick-up date is.


Save with Auto Europe
