Renting a car for a vacation just makes sense. It saves you money that you’d be spending on taxi rides and keeps you from being reliant upon the schedule (or unpredictable schedule) of public transportation. But the entire process involved in renting a car can be daunting for both first-timers and veteran travelers alike.

When picking up your car, the sales agent will likely offer the option to waive or reduce your excess with insurance cover. Before you take him up on the offer, check your travel insurance and credit card benefits to see if car rentals are already covered.

Returning a rental car late will quickly incur massive additional fees. Some agencies are slightly more lenient than others when it comes to returns and have a grace period where no charges will be added (anywhere between 29 minutes up to an hour after the scheduled return time). But no agency has infinite room for mercy; all bets are off when the grace period ends.
