Tips For Renting A Mini

If you are planning a trip to another country or simply don’t have access to your own vehicle, then you may be considering renting a Mini. Minis are both stylish and nimble cars that are simply fun to drive. If you love driving and want a vehicle that will get you around a new town or city as quickly as possible, then choosing a Mini will help you to do so. Larger vehicles are more cumbersome to drive and cannot fit into spaces or maneuver the way that a Mini can. So, with that said, we will now look at a few other tips to help you when renting a car.

The first tip is that you should avoid renting from large car rental chains such as Hertz or Avis since they usually are more expensive. Instead, you should look for smaller companies since they usually provide cheaper rates on Minis. Of course, this is not always the case, but is true most of the time. Therefore, don’t book your rental on the first company that you find, but take some time to do price shopping before deciding.

Another tip is that you should always try to book the Mini in advance. If you know that you will need a vehicle many weeks or months before time, then you should use this to your advantage. When you book weeks or months ahead, you can actually get significantly cheaper rates than if you book only days or hours before you need the vehicle. A little planning and foresight goes a long way and will help you to save a significant amount of money.

Next, you should always look for virtual discounts before booking. There are many websites that will give you discount codes which will give you between 5 – 50% off your total rental cost. As you can see, this is a significant amount of money and more than worth the simple Google search that you will have to do to find the discount or coupon codes.

You can also sign up to various car rental email subscriptions beforehand since they also typically mail out discount codes to their subscribers. Of course, you will need to be on the email list for awhile, so it is best to sign up as soon as possible so that you can take advantage of them when they become available.

Lastly, you should always try to negotiate when at the counter. The truth is, if you don’t ask for a discount, then you simply won’t get it. So, when you’re at the counter, be sure to ask for a lower rate or discount. This is a surprising tactic that usually works.

In closing, we have just looked at a few tips to help you rent a Mini and get one at a much lower cost. If you apply the above tips, I am certain that you will not only be happy with your rental, but your wallet will be much happier as well.
