  • Investigate as many different offers as you can (we make that task child's play!);
  • Arrange an email Price Drop Alert for your upcoming vacation destination. You never know what great bargains will whiz into your inbox;
  • Before you pick up your keys and get behind the wheel, take a look at both airport and non-airport pickup and drop-off locations to ensure you're getting the best deal around;
  • You can sometimes save yourself some dollars if your vacation plans are flexible. Compare different days and dates and see what savings you can score;
  • Try to keep your pickup and drop-off times as similar as possible. If you bring back your car at a later time than you picked it up, you might be charged a whole extra day;
  • Some companies reward you big time for prepaying — keep your eyes peeled for these great deals;

What kind of rental car should I get for Puerto Jimenez?

A rental car will help you get around with ease in Puerto Jimenez. If you're traveling on a shoestring and want to make your budget go further, a mini or a compact is an excellent choice. These zippy cars are economical to run and a piece of cake to park. If you're traveling with the family, a full-size car will give you plenty of space.

Should I get a luxury rental car in Puerto Jimenez?

You'll be pleased to hear that there's a huge variety of both luxury and economy rental vehicles available in Puerto Jimenez. What you go with will depend on how much you want to spend and what you're hoping to do. Prestige vehicles offer the best in mod cons and comfort. If you're splurging, why not grab an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a cushy medium-sized vehicle? On the other hand, if you just need a car to get you from A to B as cheaply as possible, you're better off going with a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
