The Perfect Car Rental:
Over the last few years, car rentals have become very popular thanks to their ever increasing affordability. Renting a car can often be cheaper than using public transport/taxi’s in some destinations. Here are some of our top tips for getting the best rental car:
Driving ConditionsAlways research and ensure you are comfortable driving in your destinations conditions. Keep an eye on the weather, and if you feel unsafe stop.
Dents and MarksWhen picking up your rental car, take photos of the car to show any dents and marks. This way the rental company can’t put the blame on you.
Phone NumberAlways have your car rental companies phone number to hand.
GPSAlways bring your own GPS or use your phone. Car rental companies charge up to an extra $20USD for the use of GPS.
InsuranceInquire whether car insurance is needed, and if it includes a deductible in the event of a collision. You can also consider going with an external insurance provider and not your car rental companies own insurance. It’s often a lot cheaper.
Full To FullAlways ensure you return you car with a full tank. 99% of car rentals are full to full.
