Let’s face it, traveling isn’t cheap. Even when you go the economical route, you still are paying for flights, hotels, transportation, and food, at the very least. There has got to be a way to save money on things like renting a van, right? The van rental experts at EZ Rent A Van answer with a resounding, “Yes!“. Here are a few things you can do to save money the next time you rent a van.

Save Money on a Rental Van

1. Plan Ahead

Van rental companies operate limited fleets, and they need to estimate demand several weeks in advance in order to have a van ready for you when you come into town. As you get closer to peak travel season for rental car companies, you’ll want to book as far in advance as possible to ensure that you’re not only getting a great price, but actually getting the van you need.

2. Shop Around

To save money when booking online, consider using a cashback browser extension like Rakuten. It also can’t hurt to search Groupon and LivingSocial for potential discounts. Some car rental companies will have their own specials and deals, so check their websites or call to find out what they can do for you. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

3. Choose a Minivan

At EZ Rent A Van, we offer passenger vans, cargo vans, and minivans. And while it can add to the comfort of your trip to rent a larger van, a minivan will be cheaper to rent and will save you money on gas. A smaller vehicle not only will get more miles per gallon, but it also will emit fewer greenhouse gases. Plus, minivans are easier to drive around big cities like San Diego because of their compact size and easy handling.
