It is not unusual to see advertisements offering rental cars for $6.00, $8.00 or $9.00 per day and I have serious doubts in believing these prices are real. You know, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Let's see, if a car is rented at, say $10.00/day it has a potential of earning $300.00 revenue for the month, however, since it is rented only part of the month, approximately between 75% to 80% of the time, we'll assume 80% and say that the revenue for the month could be $240.00. Now this is well below the cost of the unit, which in addition has to include insurance and maintenance and other costs directly related to the car. So, are we to believe that car rental companies are willing to rent cars well below what it costs them? Really?

I can understand some special circumstances under which rates may be low as business may be slow at certain times and I also understand that competition, which could be fierce, may drive prices down, but to consistently rent cars below cost... that is not possible.

I have looked into these low rates and found out several things. When you enter the corresponding search words in Google you see advertisements at $7.00 a day, but when you click that option you see a totally different price. I just entered: car rental Wilmington (North Carolina) and selected the $7,00/day option and then realized that rates start at $21.00 and go from there. I also could see that the option I selected took me to a site which wasn't a rental car company but offered to find car rental rates from other sites none of them a car rental company. So this is clearly an "internet marketer" which earns its revenue, I imagine, by sending clicks to other pages. By the time the actual supplier of the services gets my reservation I may have gone through three or maybe more sites that are serving as "middle man". So the $7.00/day car does not exist in Wilmington, and then the rates we found are not necessarily from a car rental company but some other "middle man" offering the service.

I have also found car rental companies who do offer very low rates for special dates and places, as low as $5.92, but there are additional charges and surcharges that bring the rate to $15.70 and then I have to prepay the reservation. If later I want to make changes to the reservation I have to pay additional fees and if I don't show up I lose all the money I have prepaid. And if I return the car early or late I have to pay additional fees, etc.

There are other instances of low rates where the small print requires me to purchase coverage, sometimes at very high rates, or the reservation is not honored. So I show up at the counter and then I am required to show proof of insurance, …

Plane tickets are nothing but a document made by either an airline authority or by a travel agent. While going in a particular flight, travelers need to carry some kind of document in a form of ticket in order to ensure the airplane authority that the concern traveler has purchased a place to seat on in their relevant airplane.

Are you contemplating a travel vacation and don't know how to get the best deal? Online shopping for cruise deals, travel deals and vacation packages should be your first thought.

When shopping for vacation packages or cruise and travel vacations, many people are reluctant to deal with online merchants or even offer their email address for price quotes. Let's look at this last item.

You search online for a specific cruise or vacation. You find a link that looks interesting. Clicking on the link takes you to a merchant. You plug in the parameters of your preferred travel vacation. Then the unthinkable happens. You're asked to provide your e-mail address! Oh no!

Relax. What's the worst case scenario? You will perhaps receive an e-mail requesting a little more information regarding your preferred cruise or vacation. After having given the answers requested, you will receive a quotation for your cruise or travel vacation package. You may even receive specials and updates from the merchant to keep you up to date with special cruise and travel deals. Is this so bad? If you do receive subsequent special offers, you may just find your preferred vacation on sale! What's wrong with that?

Now let's deal with the first item. You have received your quote for the cruise or vacation of choice. Again, let's look at the worst case scenario. You still do not want to deal online (although why, I can't imagine). You can then go to your "brick and mortar" cruise or travel agency armed with information and a very tight budget (remember, you already have a quote for your cruise vacation). This places you in an excellent bargaining position. You have received a couple of quotes online, and know what the best deal online is. Now you can "work over" the "brick and mortar" cruise agent. If you don't get a better or equal quotation for your cruise or vacation you still have the opportunity to purchase online. Not bad, eh?

Another definite advantage to at least pricing cruises and vacations online is that you get to do it on your time, in your own home or office without the sales pressure sometimes inflicted by face to face quotations. You also have all the time you need to browse through the myriad of cruise and vacation opportunities to get the travel getaway the best suits your needs and desires.

We have all heard of the nightmares that some vacationers have had with travel agents and agencies. There are "scam artists" in virtually every business. You are no more guaranteed that a travel agency from the paper - or even - the yellow pages - is any more reputable than an online merchant. Many frequent travelers deal online because they feel that they can get the best deals on cruises and vacations. And they can get them in "real time" directly from the cruiselines, vacation package companies, and airlines.

The next time you start to research a cruise or vacation package, check …
