How to Save Money This Thanksgivi
Below, a quick travel lesson and a money saving and stress relieving Thanksgiving travel tip for your reading pleasure. (Only a 2 minute reading time).
First, the travel lesson for your curious mind. Like most Americans, every Thanksgiving my family travels to see family and friends. Last year, we took the bold step to rent a van and head down to Florida to see the grandparents.
For this family road trip, we decided renting a large minivan would make this trip more tolerable. It would also allow us to more room inside the car. Sound familiar? Millions of Americans think this simple strategy is a good idea. Let me tell you the dark side of this concept.
Though the rental car worked, this time/penny foolish rental car decision would come back to haunt us. First, when we went to pick up the rental car, the car we requested was out of stock.
Second, once they found a van, we had to wait close to 45 minutes in line while they filled out endless paperwork. I think I may have signed away my first born during this painful process.
Finally, the rental car company tried to up sell us continuously as we checked out. No, I am not interested in you filling up the gas tank at $5.00 a gallon and $50 service fee.
Travel Lesson Learned: Rental Cars are overrated. Rent rooftop carriers, and not a car this Thanksgiving. Rental cars are only enjoyable if you enjoy waiting and dealing with pushy people. If you are like most Americans, time is money and waiting around in a car rental store is not fun or efficient.
