Everyone knows that the early bird gets the worm, but no one likes being the early bird that got the worm and paid too much for it. As a general rule, it’s a good idea to book your airfare early for the best deal, but it sure hurts when you see that the airfare has dropped after you booked your non-refundable ticket. When it comes to rental cars, it also makes sense to book early, but it’s different than airfare in that it’s generally quick, easy and free to cancel a reservation.
Even if you are not 100% certain about the dates of an upcoming trip or any other occasion for which you need a rental car, go ahead and book your reservation at the lowest rate you can find at RentACarNow.com. Then every week or two before your rental, check back to see if the rates have changed. If you find a lower rate, you can generally cancel your existing reservation without any penalty and then rebook a reservation at the lower rate.
