How to Find a Cheap Car Rental

Whether you’re going away for the weekend or you need a long-term rental while your car is in the shop, you don’t want to pay more than necessary just to get from point A to point B. If you’re in the market for a cheap car rental in Philadelphia, consider these few tips from your friends at Orthodox Auto Company.

1. Look beyond the big car-rental companies.

Don’t assume large companies mean lower prices. You can often find small, local car rental companies—like Orthodox Auto—that offer rates that compete or beat the big companies. Plus, smaller companies often come with hometown customer service you can’t find elsewhere.

2. Gather recommendations.

Do you have friends who can recommend a good rental car company? Ask them! Find out about their experiences, and take note of the companies that had stellar customer reviews.

3. Look for online deals.

You can often find special offers or coupons online if you look for them. However, some companies, like Orthodox Auto, just price our car rentals so low that you don’t need to find an additional deal to make renting a car affordable. So search for the best offer, but don’t assume that a coupon will automatically result in the lowest price. Do your research.

4. Consider whether you need to pay with cash.

If you want to pay with cash or have less-than-stellar credit, finding a car rental—let alone a cheap one—can be challenging. If you need to pay with cash, then consider companies like Orthodox Auto that have more flexible payment options, including cash.

Don’t break the bank by renting a car. Instead, contact Orthodox Auto Company of Philadelphia at (215) 332-3520, and ask our staff about our car rental rates and cash-rental program. We’d be glad to lay out your options and help you reserve your car today.
