Car rental services have not one but many options to get rent from you. One will ask you for the payment at the time of time reservation while other one at the end. Some even offers a part of payment to be made before and remaining after rental. Prepaid car rental services are being more common nowadays, but are they good for your or not? Let me tell you.
The reason why prepaid car services are being common is that they get less no-show rate. One who ask for a limo service from car rental is only 30% likely to show up. It is not good for you if your plans are not fixed, but if you are sure of renting then prepaying for your airport limo is a good option for number of reasons.
· Discount Offers
The car rental services who gives you choice to pay now or pay later, gives you 10 – 25 percent discount if you pay now. Opaque websites which offers to rent you limo services on up-front payment are way cheaper than those who gives you option to pay later.
· Cancel Reservations
Prepaying for your airport limo doesn’t mean that you have to show up anyhow or you will lose all of your payment. There is always an option available to cancel your reservation. It will cost you some percent of your fee but is a good option.
· Fixed Rates
Once you prepaid for the rental it will not be increased if rates of the services increases after your prepayment. Same will be the case if it decreases but it can be gamble. So prepay now and forget the rates.
