Car rentals are a life saver. They are very handy when you are visiting new cities and want the luxury of traveling at your own schedule. When you have a car at your disposal, you have the independence to visit all the places you want to see without paying exorbitant taxi fares. Choosing car rentals will involve renting a car from car rental companies or using ride-share services like Uber. With rideshare services, you have a car and a driver at your disposal to take you to your specified location. If you need another ride, you will have to place another request through the rideshare app. With car rental companies, you have the car for the entire specified period. You are both driver and passenger. When choosing a car rental company, you have to take the following into consideration:
- Company presence (How many states and countries do they have presence in?)
- Vehicle options available (vehicle options to choose from)
- Value added services and others (insurance, vehicles with disability assistance, online booking/cancellation, GPS, car seats for kids)
Choosing a car rental company with an international presence comes with a lot of perks. They offer different vehicle options to choose from. Value added services like insurance, vehicles with disability assistance, online booking/cancellation, GPS, and car seats for kids. You can also opt for websites that pool different car rentals available in a particular city in one place. Having car rental apps on your phone will make for more convenient travel.

Uber is a great rideshare app that connects riders with drivers and a car. You place ride requests and a driver is sent to pick you up.
