Today’s Time Saving Tuesday is all about saving time when it comes to cars.

In a few weeks my daughter and I will be embarking on a new adventure.  We’re going on a cruise!  We’re SUPER excited and I can’t wait to share it with y’all but right now we’re in the “detail” stage.  

We’ve booked the cruise and the plane tickets.  We’re still looking for a reasonable hotel and rental car.  Our cruise will depart and return to Miami and we can easily get a shuttle to the port.  But when we return, we’ve decided to rent a car and drive from Miami to Tampa to visit with close friends (really more like family) before returning home.

The rental car has been one of the harder things to decide on.  There are SOOOO many options.

It’s been some time since we’ve looked at cars and I really don’t know a whole lot about what’s out there.  Plus, there’s so many things to take into consideration:

  • It’s a 5 hour trip, so we want a quiet, comfortable ride
  • We are on a budget, so we need to consider fuel economy
  • We’re girls, so we need to make sure there’s enough room for our luggage

It would be nice to find a website that could tell me all these things…and more.  I came across Cars.com and signed up…for free, of course.  This site is a wealth of information. Even though it’s primarily directed at car buyers it has information on just about anything car related…. buying and selling tips, safety tips, maintenance, do-it-yourself repairs, as well as videos and reviews so you can see what “real ” people are saying.  

We aren’t ready to buy a car right now, but my daughter may be soon.  When she’s ready we’ll definitely be directing her to Cars.com for all the information she’ll need.  

Also, as a part of Child Seat Safety Week Cars.com is sharing this great video.  It’s a wonderful resource for new parents (or grandparents!)

I’ll keep you posted on which car we choose to rent.
