Understand that to a car hire company, hiring a car at a reduced price is better than not hiring at all. One secret car hire companies don’t want you to know is that they would rather hire a car at a reduced rate than not hiring a car at all. If they don’t have the car you requested, they will put you in a larger vehicle at the same cost. Renting on Friday nights or before major holidays decreases the stock of smaller cars on the lot which increases your chance of a free upgrade.
So you like to travel by water, eh? Well, in Europe, you can do that with ease. Europe is surrounded by an ocean and several small seas. There are also quite a few rivers in Europe.

Cairo is far too hot for comfort and exceedingly humid in summer months. If possible do not take those cheap flights to Cairo during the months between May and October. The ideal time to be here is between November and April. The temperatures are not exactly low during these months but they are bearable. A holiday in Cairo is perfect for those who are interested in the mystique of ancient Egypt.
It is important to inspect the rental car with the salesperson thoroughly. Companies do charge customers with damage, and you don’t want to pay for something you did not do.
Some trains offer couchettes for overnight trips. A couchette is a bunk-like bed you can lie down on. They’re usually triple banked in separate compartments on the train so you can turn off the light and sleep. You have to pay to reserve a couchette, but using one might allow you to arrive at your destination somewhat rested. I used a couchette on a trip from Vienna, Austria to Venice, Italy. Unfortunately, I didn’t get much sleep because I was placed in a car with a family of five and the father of the group snored a lot. But at least I didn’t have to sit up all night as I would if I were flying.
Nobody wants to travel for a funeral or to visit a loved one in the hospital. But if you are traveling for this purpose, many تاجير سيارات agencies have a special grievance discount. This is something that is often not advertised, so you’ll have to ask specifically for it. This can easily save you 10-20% off your rental price.
If you choose to cruise, make sure you do your homework so you know exactly what you’ll be getting for your cruise fare. On most cruise lines, beverages are not included. So if you want to drink alcohol or soda, you’ll have to pay a fairly steep price, often along with a tip. Tips are usually expected, and richly deserved, by the service staff and you’ll have to budget that cost into the price of your trip as well as the cost of any extras, like pictures, shore excursions, or spa treatments.
For added convenience, there are online car hire portals that can facilitate your reservation. Using them is the better option, as you are guaranteed to have the car that you want waiting for you at the airport’s parking lot. Hire a car prior to arrival so that you can have not just convenience during your trip but the luxury to stop at all the beautiful sights that you pass along the way as you head downtown and towards all the beautiful places of Spain.
