Is there a cheaper way to rent a car on a weekly basis?

I sold my car a while ago and it will take me a few years to save up for another one. I have to rent a car almost every weekend, and the cost is really adding up! Is there a cheaper way to do this?

“Renting a car every weekend can get pricey! Here are a few ideas for saving money:
  • Participate in rental car rewards programs.
  • Look into carsharing services like Zipcar if you need the car for just a couple of hours at a time.
  • Check with your credit card company to see if they have any car rental perks or programs.
  • Check with your employer to see if they have any rental car corporate discounts available.
If these options are still too costly for you, get quotes online for non owners car insurance. These policies are designed for drivers who rent or borrow cars but don’t have a vehicle regularly furnished for their use.
If you want to save money on car insurance, the Jerry app is a good place to start. Jerry works with over 40 carriers, many of whom have non owners policies. You can get customized quotes sent straight to your phone without having to speak with an agent. “
