  12. Good looking out, thanks again Matt!!

  13. Sooooooooo good!!!! Thanks so much!

  14. I'll be using these tips every soon.

  15. I’m an Enterprise loyalist. Mainly because I travel credit card free and I know their policies.

  16. Thank you for slowing down when speaking and adding sub-titling that actually keeps up with you. It is a great help for us that are a bit "hard of hearing".

  17. 👍👍👍👍👍

  18. Thanks

  19. I love your shirt and tie today 😊

  20. Hello Matt the Man!

  21. Keep up the excellent work Matt!

  22. Some AMEX cards offer premium car rental insurance for $30/rental. (not per day)

  23. Matt, keep 'em… ROLLING!😉

  24. Very helpful – thank you!

  25. Finally, a deal video on something I enjoy.

  26. You forgot to mention the rip off $10-$12 per day charge for companies to offer free toll and toll fees paid per day. I’m thinking specially of Orlando, where I rent cars frequently. Most of the off airport companies there are near entrances and exits to toll roads where you need exact change in quarters. If you don’t have it and didn’t take the car rental companies rip off toll fee, they will charge your card $38 for each infraction. Plus, my car at home is old enough that I only take liability insurance. So, I’m stuck taking the agency’s $36 per day insurance. Even thou it’s almost 1,300 miles to drive to Orlando, I drive 2/3 of the time to avoid renting a car. Or, I take Uber when I get there.

  27. Are these valid in Canada

  28. Great deal and GREAT INFO on this one Matt!

  29. Thanks Matt for sharing your experiences.

  30. great video bro will use this very soon

  31. Hello, Matt. This situation happened to a friend of mine who traveled to Denver: he booked a reservation through Hotwire and the rental car company at DIA airport off-site location refused to honor the Hotwire quote. I have heard in other travel situations that the vendors are not required to honor third party quotes. Comment, please.

  32. What about Turro?

  33. For third party insurance on rental cars–If you have an American Express card and sign up for this particular option, they charge $19.95 per rental, not per day (up to 30 days)–great deal and far cheaper than any other option I have found. And, I have used this benefit when I had an accident in a National Rental car–no issues no problems, they covered it.

  34. Good info. Thanks for your help. This will be used on the future for sure.

  35. Good vid, Matt. One additional point, make sure to do a pre-entry, thorough walk-around with the agent, noting on the contract any dings, scrapes, dents, or stains, so you dont get charged for damages you didn't do. 😳

  36. Matt,
    I think this is the MOST educational, MOST IMPORTANT vid you've ever put up.

  37. 😁😁😁👍👍👍

  38. I don’t travel a lot but find this information so helpful for when I do. So thank you so much.

  39. Here’s one. I’ve been told by multiple car companies that the rates go down after 12 noon or 1pm on thursday. And i’ve tried this out and it works. Lots of times i rent for a week even if i only need it for 4-5 days. It can save you money as well

  40. Excellent information! I shared this with my son who is in need of a rental this week because his car is in the shop longer than expected. Thank you!

  41. Thanks for the info, Matt!

  42. I am going to have to remember this for my next trip.

  43. Great info. ❤️

  44. Loved the info.

  45. This is one video I'll have to memorize!!

  46. any luck with a deal with just your debit card purchase for a car rental?

  47. One company that has the best prices is Costco. Yes, you need to be a member but if you rent cars a couple of times a year it pays for itself and then you get the other price benefits as well. If you don't have one near you it can be all done online and most of the things they sell include shipping.

  48. Easyrent was HORRIBLE for me in Florida…They lied to me and would never recommend them…

  49. I worked at hertz….

    Lots of people that book with a debit card on a third party site tend to show up and get screwed over because if they can’t pass a credit check they can’t rent a car or have an unexpected deposit.

    The best insurance to get (Atleast with Hertz) is the LDW(loss damage waiver) it covers the car so you don’t have to file on your insurance AND if it’s damaged you don’t have to pay the daily rental charges for it every day it’s in the shop (your insurance won’t cover that).

    Debit cards at the airport they will run a credit check, and hold a deposit on top of your rental amount (you must also have your flight itinerary)

    Sign up for the hertz gold profile, it’s free and you get perks!

  50. Thank you. Have a blessed day!

  51. Or use zipcar

  52. cool talk tech matt

  53. This video is 1 year too late for me, had a horrible experience with Easirent. Just don't rent from them, ever, and save yourself the headache on your travel. Nevertheless, I love this video, thanks.

  54. You da man, Thanks for saving me money!

  55. Wow

  56. 🔥🔥🔥
    1:44 🖤🔥

  57. Speaking as an ex enterprise employee(Houston)….

    1. False

    2. True

    3. True-ish. Airports normally have lower rates due to increased taxes. But you have a better selection.

    4. 🤷🏾‍♂️

    5. Always take the CDW/LDW. Can't control break ins and other damages.

    6. ERAC hardly had coupons. You're better off sliding a tip to the agent for an upgrade. 🤷🏾‍♂️

    Also, cleaning fees only really applied to if you smoked in the car. We never expected the customer to clean the car lol

  58. HA ! Super helpful!

  59. I hire monthly from 🇬🇧 do your tips apply here?

  60. Always, always, always… do a pre inspection/walk around the car. Better if you do it with an agent who will give you a pre inspection form . If no agent is available take pictures! Also take a picture of the gas tank and current mileage on the car if it is not full

  61. thanks Matt

  62. You do have to be careful because if you book 3rd party you probably won’t get a free upgrade or really great customer service.

  63. Thanks for the great tips. Great vid. What do you think about the insurance covered by some credit cards 💳 on rental cars?

  64. Matt, off site rental locations always have car that are about to be put out of the fleet. There is a roll of the dice with these cars. Cars are not usually clean, worn tires, and other issues not suited for long road trips. In my experience, when you have trouble with these cars rental companies are willing to over help with any issues. Also off site locations are sometimes franchise owned. Get to know the people who work there. I am very close to the franchise owner at my local Pep Boys.

  65. Perfect timing again…renting a car now!

  66. Everyone’s situation is different, but we always take the gas fill option because the prices are almost the same where we go and we are usually stressed for time, so that is one less thing to do. Also the company we use (Enterprise) is really good about giving us little perks, so sometimes we don’t even have a charge at all depending on what the gas was when they gave it. They are very flexible and super nice. It doesn’t help when flying to strange cities, but if you rent a lot from a local office like we do, getting to know the staff can definitely save you money!

    One time, they even came and dropped off a new car to us when the car we had died on us in a parking lot an hour after we had left. So I strongly advise getting to know people if you can. Shopping around can save money, but so can being a “regular” with hidden discounts, upgrades and all sorts of things just for getting to know the staff.

  67. Great deal Matt and now I need to try this out.

  68. Great stuff to know👍🏾 Thanks Matt. Awesome👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

  69. Great video. Never ever uner any circumstances should you pre-pay. It doesn't guarantee you will get a vehicle and in today's rental car climate. Waiting up to 5 days for a refund sucks. Especially for those who have only 1 credit card.

  70. Stay away from alliance they won't cover loss of use. Ugh!!

  71. Car rental…loyalty goes a long way. Gold member. Preferred member. Loyalty almost allows you to cut the line.

  72. Thanks for mentioning my city West Palm beach,you should have checked out club 10 inside the Hilton when you were in town.

  73. As a AAA member, I always find the cheapest price on hertz's own website.

  74. Do Auto slash works on International country flights??

  75. Thanks s million Matt, I just saved over a hundred bucks with that app you were preaching about 🤑🤑

  76. Fox car rental also makes you put down anywhere from $500-$1500 deposit when you get there. This could impact your cash flow if you were not expecting this.

  77. Even better use the "Turo" App!

  78. Excellent!

  79. Excellent! Thanks!

  80. Thanks 🙏🏽

  81. 👋🏻Florida ☀️🌴🇺🇸


  83. I've literally saved thousands renting through Hertz because I do a lot of 1 way rentals and unlike enterprise where I used to rent, Hertz doesn't charge a drop off fee!! Wish I could have known 6 years earlier

  84. First time coming across this account. But I'd say for a business traveler or a frequent traveler, some of these don't make any sense, but I guess people that randomly need to rent a car one day or only go to Disney once a year can probably follow these tips.

  85. From someone that has worked in numerous car rental companies (Europcar, Sixt and Avis), Child Seats are not part of our commisions and the prices go from 10€ per day or 2-6€ per day for a Booster. But they are never, absolutely never part of our commisions, mostly because it's an obligatory product that you must have for your child and it's not really a sale.

  86. **Warning** After you fill up your rental car upon return, wash your hands REALLY well. Otherwise TSA will think you are a bomb and hold you for a full pat down.
