Become a Loyal Customer
If you haven’t been renting a car from a particular dealer long enough and oral promises don’t work, try preparing an additional sum to show your inclination of becoming a long-term client. Chances are that you could qualify for a loyal customer program. If however, you have been renting a car from a company since 6 months or more, you could be in a position to receive discounts or free upgrades.
Zero-down on your Requirements
Determine ahead of time what ‘extras’ you may need and consider the costs so that they fit within your budget. Items to consider:
- Car Size: Consider the size of the car you are renting. Do you really need that SUV if it’s just you and another partner traveling?
- Insurance: Contact your travel insurance and credit card company to see if you already have enough coverage. Thirdly, look at available insurance options with the car rental provider. While insurance cover might be essential, you might not need the pricey full insurance option.
- Mileage limit: Consider the distance you’d be driving every week and opt for a small mileage package if you need to move about short distances in Abu Dhabi. Be sure to check how much you’d be paying for the extra miles should the need arise.
