Before Booking a Rental Car, we know the international car rental agencies all over the world (Avis, Hertz, Sixt, …). But where you’re traveling, locally owned car rental companies may offer lower rates. For example at the island of Crete, Greece there are more than three hundred car rental companies, authorized to rent a car by Greek National Tourism Organization. Some of the local car rental companies offer the best car rental deals, they often offer exclusive discounts. Do not hesitate to trust the local car rental companies. Before you book online, do your internet search for coupons and promotion codes to use into the booking engine of the car rental aggregator company’s website. Type the name of the company and the words “coupon” or “coupon code” into the search field of the search engine. You will often find special promotion codes that could save you money.
Tip: Evaluate the car rental companies and to be sure they are up to the standards of the market. Check the booking engines and aggregators’ websites to get an idea of what rates are available, but you should always visit the local car rental companies for better deals.

FDW (Full Damage Waiver) & CDW (Collition Damage, Waiver).
Well the car rental company waives the right to collect a small deductible -depends on the agreement- from you if the car is damaged, and most importantly it covers most of the car if you are in a collision. It usually costs around 10 euro per day, and significantly reduces the deductibles owed if you do have an accident or there is damage to the vehicle.Essentially, the rental company waivers their right to make you, the renter, pay for damages to the car. If you do have an accident, or the car is stolen, without FDW/CDW Insurance you will have to pay for all of the repairs and recovery charges, which can quickly become tens of thousands of dollars. With FDW/CDW insurance you only have to pay an excess or deductible, which will be significantly less.
