Top tips for corporate car rental

John Wenzelman is vice-president of supplier relations at BCD Travel. His top recommendations for renting a vehicle include:

1. Knowing when to take insurance and when not to

2. Refuelling cars before returning

3. Renting vehicles at off-airport locations whenever possible

4. Renting cars rather than paying mileage for trips over a certain length

5. Incorporating lowest possible upfront costs to minimise taxes, as opposed to back-end rebates

6. Understanding what the fixed and variable costs of car rental are and how these impact on the final bill

7. Reviewing extra fees such as energy surcharges to have these removed

8. Returning cars on time to avoid receiving penalties.
