Booking in Advance vs. Last Minute Booking
Having a car around when one’s in a foreign land, like Crete, is a more convenient way to explore and get around the island. It saves money and time because the tourist won’t have to depend on public transportation. Plus, a car is always available at his disposal. Regarding car rentals in Crete, here’s a little tip for every traveler: book one in advance.
Booking a car rental in advance is better than renting at the last minute for a lot of reasons. Here are a few reasons why:
1. More options
Booking car rentals in advance allows the traveler to choose from more car options. It’s a way to make sure that he gets what he needs from a car, whether it’s convenience, comfort, speed or price. Making a booking at the last minute, on the other hand, restricts that option, especially when it’s in the busy high season.
2. Less cost
Last minute booking is often more expensive, especially when it’s the busy high season, because there is a lot of demand for car rentals and fewer cars to choose from. Avoid spending more than what is necessary by booking in advance.
Booking a car in advance will help one avoid the stress of worrying what to do, where to go or how to get to their destination when one has already landed.
Some car rental companies like Cretarent car hire in Crete offer 5% discount to clients which decide to book 3-4 months in advance! That’s a bargain!
