While going on vacation or even a business trip, many drivers don’t take the time to research what type of vehicle would be best to rent.
They may just take whatever is offered to them at the rental counter, not realizing they could save more and find a better fit for their rental needs.
Another area of focus for rental car drivers is auto insurance.
