Using a rental car is one of the easiest and most practical ways to get around, and if you plan to travel you may have already considered booking a car rental in advance to get a better price. Many rental car companies partner with credit card issuers to provide special offers to customers. You can take advantage of these offers to save a nice chunk of money just by paying for your booking with your credit card. In some cases you will also need to provide a reference number.
