Renting a car like you’ve got some sense


“But I can’t rent a car without a credit card!”
Really? Reaaaally?
What is this 1978?

These credit card commercials really have folks jacked up in the head huh?

All BKF students do is travel and rent cars with debit cards.

In 2018 you have so many options its not even funny.

Option 1: stop renting like you’re a baby boomer. There is no good reason to rent from traditional car rental companies.

Use the Turo app (including my discount of $25 off your first rental. Visit www.bkfuniversity.com/referrals ). They’ll actually bring the car to you.

Use the ‘Getaround’ app if Turo isn’t in your city.

Use zipcar or cars2go for by the hour car rentals.

Use fair.com for a subscription service.

Use any of the other billion and one competitors that do the same.

But whatever you do, stop going to these wack traditional rental car companies while all these disruptors to old ways of doing things are cheaper, better and more accessible.

Option 2: Use uber/lyft and others and skip the car in the first place, save a ton of time not knowing how to get around a new city, paying for parking and not being able to drink.

This is what I do. Some of the worst surprises are having a great vacation and then getting parking ticket fees in the mail back at home from not knowing the ins and outs of the city you were trying to drive around in.

Option 3: But if you feel you must use traditional car rental companies like you’re a baby boomer, 4 out of 6 of those traditionally expensive car rental companies do not require credit cards.
Net-net:

You’ve got to live life saying “I refuse” in order to win at the constant sucker sh* that is thrown your way.
This is in every aspect of your life.
I mean if you simply allow folks to run all over you, just wait till you find yourself in a car dealership and the salesman is like “oh I’m sorry, the ad you saw on TV doesn’t apply to the cars we have here”
Like hell it doesn’t.

Ya’ll want to get sued for false advertisement in this piece?
