We've rounded up all the tricks of the trade to help you save more money:
Akita has so much to offer. You could spend a while in this place and barely scratch the surface. To experience as much as possible in this bustling metropolis, you'll need a rental car. Bear in mind that driving in the city generally comes with tight streets and even tighter parking spots. But don't stress — a compact or an economy car will make this less daunting. If you're planning to get out of the city and take a look at some of the tablelands that Akita is well known for, you'll probably prefer a vehicle with more power. A full-size or mid-size SUV will get you around comfortably.
For some of us, owning a prestige vehicle may be somewhat out of reach. But renting the car of your dreams is well within your grasp! Imagine the feeling of cruising around town in a swish sports car, even if it's only for a little while. Or maybe all you're chasing is a reliable set of wheels to get you safely from A to B. Flashy or affordable? Either way, there's a rental car to suit you in Akita.
