When people think about renting a car, they often think it’s only for out-of-town vacations or work-related trips. But, sometimes there are circumstances that cause you to have to rent a car when you weren’t planning on this extra expense. This is why Paragon Car & Van Rental is sharing three budget-friendly tips for the next time you need to rent a car in the Chicago area.

Budget-Friendly Tips When You Need to Rent a Car

1. Rent an Economy Car

The best way to save on a car rental is by renting what we call an economy car. While these vehicles may be smaller in size, they are definitely not smaller in power and value. These practical and economical vehicles are perfect for those who are traveling on a budget. Whether you need a rental car for a family emergency in the Chicago area or an insurance replacement for your broken down vehicle, we’ve got the perfect budget-friendly rental car for you.

2. Save with Great Gas Mileage

Not only are economy rental cars cheaper to rent than our mid-size cars, but they also offer amazing fuel efficiency. You’ll save money at the gas pump, as well as get more bang for your buck when it comes to mileage. Travel long distances without the worry of paying more for gas.

3. Pay with Cash or Debit Card

Avoid credit card interest or late payment fees by paying for your car rental with cash or a debit card. There are many car rental companies that will not accept any other form of payment besides credit cards. We offer alternate forms of payment for those who are conscious about how they spend their money. Our goal is to make it simple and easy for you to get the rental car you need. 

Cars, Vans, and SUVs

At Paragon, we rent more than economy cars. We also rent mid-size cars, minivans, passenger vans, cargo vans, and SUVs. As a family-owned company, we take pride in serving you and your own family. Request a quote online or call (773) 622-7660 to speak with us today.
