Rent a fuel efficient car for road trips

Provided By:

(NC)-For families all across Canada summer means one thing: road trip. But with fuel costs rising, what options do Canadians have to help offset the cost of driving and maintain the family road trip tradition? These days, many families are renting a car for driving vacations lasting a month, a week, or just a weekend.

"Every year more and more cars are being rented for summer road trips," said Dwight Miller, Enterprise Rent-A-Car Vice President. "With the rising price of gas, fuel-efficient rental vehicles become very attractive for a family looking to cut costs on their driving vacation budget."

Why rent when you own a car? Fuel efficiency; the majority of rental vehicles are fuel-efficient, newer model cars. This may not mean much for a trip to the grocery store, but for the true road warriors who are racking up the kilometres, the savings can be significant, even when factoring in rental cost.

More ways to curb your road tripping fuel costs:

• Pack as light as you can - additional weight inside the car can hinder fuel economy.

• Avoid using a roof rack to store additional luggage or bins - this is even worse than jamming the inside of the car. Bags or bins on top of the car cause wind drag, and prevent your vehicle from performing at its most fuel-efficient level.

• Drive the speed limit - excessive speed eats into fuel economy and is also a great way to get a ticket.

Whether you are renting a car or driving your own, summer road trips create the memories that last forever. You can reserve a rental car for your driving vacation online at www.enterprise.com.
