Dang it! I missed my turn while my cell phone was slogging around near my feet after it slipped out of the cup holder in my rented Camaro! Does this describe you when renting a car?? It certainly described me, that is, until I found the perfect rental car hack.

Rental Cars, Getting Lost, and AC Mounted Magnetic Cell Phone Holders

Often travelers will rent cars as part of their trip. However,  being in an unfamiliar locale we travelers often rely on our phone’s map-based GPS system to get around.

But, rental cars don’t have an easy way to hold our phones so we can drive hands free.

Our cars at home probably have a more permanently mounted solution but we can’t do that in our rental car, right?

This is why an AC mounted removable magnetic cell phone holder is the perfect travel accessory for your next trip. It allows you to easily click the holder to the AC vent of your rental car and then mount your phone on it for easy hands free driving.

Travelers have many options, but our preference is the Wizgear phone mount, depicted below:

    Question for you… 80% of rented cars now have apple car play / android auto. Why do you still need a phone holder?
