Economy cars are not easily available and even if they are available they must be hired for a minimum of three days. Please check the mode of payment to be used to pay the bill; many car-rental companies do not accept cash but only credit cards.

The advertised car rental rate you normally see is a weekend rate. The total cost of using rental cars can be submitted to a lot more extra costs than you think. Car rental agencies generally charge four kinds of basic rates a daily rate with a mileage charge, a daily rate with a limited number of free miles per day, a daily rate with unlimited mileage or a rate that has free mileage over an extended period. Some companies will rent out on an hourly basis. In which case renting a car for two or three days is your best option. Agencies operate on a daily and weekly rate. It is wiser to go with the weekly rate if you're using the rental car for more than 6 days, or if you can see yourself needing the rental car longer than you planned. Always check the daily and weekly rates, but the weekly rate is usually lower.
If you want the best deal then, shop around online and offline. Don't go for the first price; rates are constantly changing due to supply and demand. If you can, book a week in advance. You will be surprised at how fast car rental companies book up during peak travel periods. If you have to change your plans, and then act accordingly so you do not incur extra charges. Some companies have cancellation policies where charges are laid if you do not cancel within a certain time period. Car rental rates fluctuate constantly.
Surprisingly enough, it is cheaper to rent on the weekend. Consider Thursday afternoon to Sunday. Book well in advance, but remember that your special requests might not get fulfilled due to vehicle availability. It depends when you plan to travel. It is wise to book at least a week in advance if you are traveling in a peak period. Remember that a reservation only means you're reserving your rate. You are not guaranteed a specific vehicle type.
You will most likely have to have a major credit card to rent with the international companies. A credit card is a guarantee of payment. A debit card is not considered a credit card! So don't take your chances. The particular agency you're patronizing might not accept it. If you do not own a credit card, it might be wise to check with some locally owned, independent agencies to see if they will take cash deposit.
