Smarter Car Renting

Here are car rental tips from the road trip-seasoned editors of

•  Many States, One Car:If renting a car for a longer road trip, check with the car rental companies in Des Moines, Iowa to see if they have policies about crossing state lines that affect the final rate you pay. May be no effect, but don't assume you can crisscross the globe with unlimited mileage impunity. There may be a GPS tracker in the car!

•  Fear of the Unknown:Unfamiliar with the streets of Des Moines? Consider adding a GPS navigation system to your rental. GPS provides turn-by-turn directions to a number of Des Moines attractions and businesses, and is offered by almost all Des Moines car rental agencies. The GPS helps you navigate like some mythical Greek God of Navigation! You can also add your own portable GPS on your handy windshield sucker, but remember to take it all with you when you turn in the car at the end of your trip.

•  Car Types:When selecting a car type, remember it's not just about how cool you'll appear. The car selection page details show an average of how many people and how many pieces of luggage can comfortably fit in each car type. Pay attention to the specifics to be certain they meet your needs before booking.
