Renting a Car

If you are considering renting a car on your next trip to Europe, here are some things you may want to consider.

Book in advance. We always decide how many days we will need the car, where we will be picking it up, and where we will be returning it. This gives us time to ask about any discounts (motor club, senior citizen, airline affiliations, etc. ) they may have and to comparison shop for the vehicle we want or need on our trip.

We have noticed that in many countries the vehicle will have a manual transmission. Sometimes automatics are available but for a much higher price. Think about your comfort level with a manual transmission and the roads you will be driving. And...if you are going to England or Australia, be sure to think about driving on the  left side of the road.

More tips to follow...
