Want to land a great price on a 12-passenger van rental? The trick is to hunt for attractive promo coupons, reserve as early as possible, and then track your reservation for price drops. This may sound like a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be.
Here’s the easy way to snag a 12-passenger van rental for less.
How to Find a Deal on a 12-Passenger Van Rental
Tracking down the best van rental deals can take hours of research if you do it yourself. But AutoSlash can do that for you, for free. When you ask AutoSlash for a quote, we automatically search publicly available discounts and coupons offered by major rental car companies.
Even better, we will keep track of all your memberships—from AAA to Costco to AARP and beyond—to make sure that you’re not missing out on any other discounts. This is how you can be sure you’re getting the very best rate, and it saves you hours of research time. Many of our customers have benefited from significant discounts for van rentals thanks to our process.
Another trick to getting a great deal on a van is simply to book as early as possible. Many travelers don’t realize that van rentals change with supply and demand. So the price you get three weeks before your pickup date might not be the best price over time.
That’s why we recommend that you ask AutoSlash to track your van reservation. We’ll let you know if there’s a price drop before your pickup date, so you can cancel and rebook at the lower rate. Simply tracking your reservation leads to a 30 percent savings, on average.
Extra Costs With a 12-Passenger Van Rental
As you might expect, it’s more expensive to rent a passenger van than a car. Beyond the cost of renting a bigger, more valuable vehicle, vans tend to guzzle more gas than cars. Typically, passenger vans do not come with unlimited mileage, so a long trip may lead to additional mileage fees.
In addition, it often makes sense to opt for the over-the-counter collision insurance, since your personal auto insurance and credit card coverage is unlikely to extend to rented passenger vans.
