Car Rental Newark Airport

Car rental is a cost-effective way to get a car to use for a few days or weeks when going on a trip or even for other needs. At an hourly fee, you can get a car of your choice to take you just about anywhere.


With the festive season fast approaching, more and more people will be looking to make trips across the world. If you’ll be landing at Newark Liberty International Airport, you’d want to book a car rental early enough to avoid last the minute rush.


Rental providers; Enterprise, National, Hertz, and Avis are located at station P3 while Dollar, Budget, and Alamo are at Station P2.


Here are a few tips to help you gain the most from your car rental;


  • Weekly rates are quite more attractive

Though weekend rates can be low, weekly rates are even more attractive. In some instances you could save up to 30% if you rented for the 7 days of the week. For instance, if weekday rates are $60.00, you will find that weekly rates for the same car at the same company are about $250.00, promising a 10% saving for weekdays only and up to 30% for the whole week.


  • Learn a thing about insurance coverage

If you already have an insurance policy that covers you in case you injure someone or destroy property in an accident if you were in a rental car, you may not need the company’s collision damage waiver. Even the loss damage waiver usually offered by the rental company may not be necessary. Call your insurance provider to learn about what they cover when you rent a car. Some card providers also pay for damages caused by cars rented using their cards so you need to confirm that as well.


  • Be a member of the club

You’re always likely to qualify for several discounts and bonuses if you’re a member of the car-rental membership club. All the recognized companies have membership clubs. Many times you’ll get free rental days if you’re a member and a frequent renter.


Summary

You are required to check with your rental agency on toll payment. For those that use E-ZPass®transponder tags, ask how the tags are used and find out if there are any additional charges.
