If you are anything like me, you end up doing quite a lot of shopping around online – always looking for the best deal. You may even recall many, many moons ago I coined the term mum-onomics, and it made reappearances (here and here). Sometimes I can and I mean literally spend hours looking at options. And then I get really annoyed at myself for wasting so much time. My worst habit, which I am trying to break, is doing the searching and then sitting on the fence and not doing the booking or buying, and then having to go back another day and repeat everything I have done previously. Talk about wanting to shoot myself in the head!
So needless to say, I have become very familiar with sites that do the hard work for you. Did you know there was a new kid on the block? I did not, but I do now. And “new” maybe the wrong word, “new for me” is what I really mean. Did you know there is a car rental hire site equivalent of iSelect or Webjet, called DriveNow? If you want cheap car rental at Melbourne Airport and around Melbourne (not to mention the rest of Australia, and actually a fair chunk of the world!) you can never go astray with DriveNow.
You have to check it out for yourself, but they bring all pricing together and make it quick and easy to find the best deal. There are no fees or cancellation charges, and what I like is that there is no need to pay a deposit or supply credit card details in order to lock in the deal. My kind of booking!
So Mum-onomics 4: There are websites out there that have already taken some of the leg work out of finding the best deal. Make use of them, leaving more time to shop for something else!!
