The time for your summer vacation is almost here. It is time for you to start thinking about what you will do with it. You need not fly to an overseas destination. In fact, it is probably wiser to avoid such travel. You can spend your vacation in Canada. And make the most of the time you have off by taking a road trip.
If your destination is an outdoor wilderness that you intend to explore or a warm and sunny tropic location whose beaches you intend to stay on, then you may not need a car to get around. In such a case, you will only need the rental car to get to your destination. Most rental agencies allow their customers to do one-way trips. However, they tend to charge drop-off fees. Certain cities and towns are more popular than others. An abundance of one-way car rentals causes the piling up of cars in one spot, which costs the company money to adequately re-distribute.
One of the best ways to avoid drop-off fees is to arrange a mirror trip. This is one of the latest trends online, and it has helped thousands of road trippers avoid drop-off fees. The MirrorTrip website contains a Price Lab. This online device conducts a live search of all major car rental companies in the United States and Canada to find the cheapest one-way rental deals. It carries out a search of a database that contains millions of records, which will present you with rates at different locations. These rates change, and you can set a price alert that will inform you when there is a price drop in the location which you intend to rent your car from.
You will then be able to avoid drop off fees by using MirrorTrip. This will allow you to securely connect with people who are driving in the direction opposite from yours, which turns the individual one-way trips that each of you is making into a round trip and thus relieving you of the burden of paying drop-off fees. It is important to coordinate your schedules closely. The only way for this to work is for you and the other driver to show up at the designated location at the designated time.
Although MirrorTrip is not available everywhere, you should still use Price Lab to get the best deals on one-way car rental fees. Not all companies will tell you ahead of time that you will be charged a drop-off fee. You should investigate the matter yourself before walking into a car rental shop.
A summer road trip can be exciting and interesting. It will allow you to relax, recharge, and breathe a little before resuming your working life. It can also be a cost-effective way of taking a break. And if your goal is to save money where you can, then you should use the online tools available to you. Using MirrorTrip and Price Lab can help you enjoy a great summer holiday.
