Do you really need to rent a car when you travel? Not only can it be expensive to rent and park the car, it may be unnecessary in large cities. Research ahead of time to find out if there is public transport from the airport in your destination city. Look at rail and bus lines, and use apps to help plan your itinerary. Not only will you be greener, you'll save money and a lot of time, too. Taking a train from Newark to New York City, for example, is often far cheaper and faster than taking a taxi.
