 Carpocalypse – the biggest rental car shortage in rental car history

As pandemic lockdowns and restrictions ease, Americans and other travelers are chomping at the bit to travel, vacation, mingle and experience new or favorite things. But the pandemic had more far-reaching consequences than could be predicted creating barriers to even the most simplistic of vacation plans. Laughlin Getaways Tours has a solution!

 Take a trip and never rent a car!

Why are Vehicle Rental Prices So High? 

Shortages due to the pandemic and other factors have led to an explosion in car rental prices. Main reasons for the shortages include increased demand as things open up, but also such factors as fewer new cars being built due to a shortage in semiconductor chips. Car rental companies generally re-fleet their inventory with new cars each year, but due to travel restrictions during the pandemic, this was often not done.

Renting a vehicle in 2021 could cost you as much as 10 times what it would have cost last year. Experts are recommending that travelers book their vehicle rental far in advance ahead of their airline tickets. In some cases, the car rental will cost more than the airline tickets. Factoring in higher gasoline prices and your modest getaway could end up costing you far more than your budget allows.
