In this blog post, we will discuss how to save money on GPS navigation when renting a car. We will also provide some tips for using your navigator effectively. Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to saving money on your next road trip!

Rent a car with a built-in gps navigator

If you’re renting a car, chances are that you’ll be charged for the use of a GPS navigator. However, there’s a way to get around this charge and save some money.

Simply ask the rental company if they have any cars with built-in GPS navigators. Many companies do have such cars available, and they’ll usually be happy to give you one at no extra charge.

Bring your own map or gps app to avoid rental fees

If you’re renting a car, chances are you’ll need some form of GPS navigation to get around. But did you know that most car rental companies charge extra for this service? To avoid these fees, simply bring your own map or GPS app on your phone. This way, you can save yourself some money and still have access to all the features you need.

Another tip: make sure to program your destination into the GPS before you leave the rental office. That way, you won’t have to worry about getting lost (and rack up additional charges for going off-route).

Use your smartphone as a GPS navigator

If you have a smartphone, you can use it as a GPS navigator. There are many free and paid apps that offer turn-by-turn navigation. Google Maps is a popular option that’s available for both Android and iOS devices.

Another useful app is Waze. This app provides real-time traffic information, so you can avoid congestion and save time on your journey. Waze is also available for both Android and iOS devices.

Download maps ahead of time to avoid data roaming charges

If you’re renting a car in a foreign country, chances are you’re going to want to use a GPS navigation system to get around. However, data roaming charges can be exorbitantly expensive – up to $20 per megabyte in some countries! To avoid these costly charges, download maps of your destination ahead of time and save them to your phone or tablet. Google Maps lets you do this easily: simply type in the name of the place you’re going and select the “Save offline map” option from the menu. Once the map is downloaded, you’ll be able to access it without using any data.
