Save money renting cars by checking the price at all available resources. It may be more thrift friendly to rent a car from a car dealer than a rental agency.  Car dealers are also more apt to negotiate prices.

 

If you are trying to extend the life of your personal car,  think about renting a car for your vacation, as opposed to taking your personal vehicle.
