Money Saving Tips for USA Visit includes Car Hire Excess Insurance

The Daily Telegraph published a report by Paul Wade and Katy Arnold on Friday 29th January 2010 entitled “USA on a budget - money-saving tips”.

Amongst the selection of the “Ten Money-Saving Tips” was “Before renting cars, take out independent annual excess cover from companies such as Insurance4carhire” http://www.insurance4carhire.com/index.asp?linkfrom=4&curID=1&langID=1&refID=188

They also mention car hire further fown in the article under “Do it yourself” saying “For the web savvy, it is easy to book flights, car hire and hotels in the US……. and to Skycars International for well-priced car hire…. However, it is important to note that car rental companies have cut their fleets, so fewer cars are available. In future, hiring a car may be more like booking a flight: you’ll need to move early for the best deals. To guarantee your car is waiting when you arrive, pay in advance and be sure to provide your flight details. Otherwise, if you are delayed, your car might be allocated to someone else.”

One company that is great value in my opinion is Holiday Autos.
http://www.holidayautos.co.uk/cgi-bin/liveweb.sh/QSearch.w?ctryref=GBR&lang=EN&aff=xjeffreymilnerltd They are one of the major car hire brokerage companies, part of last minute.com and they cover the USA

They are very competitive going to excellent car hire companies. I recently booked through them in Nice, France and discovered their partner there was Europcar. Out of curiosity as soon as I booked, I went into the Europcar website to compare the price for the same booking. It was a lot cheaper through holiday autos.

Finally remember if you are looking for a self catering holiday rental property in the USA or have one to let (it only costs £11.75 per year to advertise on the low cost villa advertising service) visit http://www.jmlvillas.com/
