Saving Money & Packing

June 25th, 2015 at 09:44 pm

I saved a bundle of money today. I called and added full coverage to one of our cars, so I don't have to purchase the rental car insurance for our vacation next month.

It only cost me $24 to upgrade to full coverage until September!!!

The rental car insurance is $20 a day... for a 10 day vacation. $24 vs $200. Crazy!

Leaving bright and early tomorrow at 4am for our goat trip. 10 goats will be heading to their new homes. Driving all the way to the ocean tomorrow, staying the night. Saturday we are going to the beach, and sight seeing a bit. Then staying with relatives in TN. Then Sunday morning we will be heading home. Going to be a lot of driving. Yuck.

Wish us luck for safe travels!

    I like a road trip. A road trip with goats sounds like quirky fun!

    Wish you and goats safe journey.
    Car rental: Glad you got a rider on your regular car insurance to avoid outrageous rental insurance, remember to take your pink slip and possibly a copy of the extra coverage. We've rented cars regularly and there are lots of possible add-on fees. If you're under 25 y/o they can reject or manipulate charges, extra if pick-up at airport site/cheaper at non airport site but they usually have some type of transport. You are trading time for cost. When booking, ask about sales tax, license fee, 3rd party liability, fee per driver, cancellation fee, tire fee, privilege fee, stadium tax, mystery fee, exactly what time the vehicle must be returned as it can be 24 hrs. to the minute.
