Tips for Renting a Car


Are you looking for wheels for your next holiday? If you are looking for flexibility when you are travelling, then renting a car is a very good option, but it may not always be so easy.

Finding a good deal, type of insurance cover you need are just some of the key points to consider. So here are some useful tips for you-

  • Choosing a Car- First things first ! What kind of vehicle will cater to your requirement? If you are travelling with a lot of gear or with children, then an SUV is the best option for you. You can go for a small car, if you are travelling with 2-3 people. But size is not the only yardstick when it comes to choosing a car. Are you comfortable with a stick shift or you prefer driving automatic vehicle. Also enquire if the car rental company offers extras such as GPS system and trolley.   

  • Points to consider before booking a car- Are you going to hire the car for a week or less than that? Search online to find good deals before you make up your mind. If you are going to drive a lot, then you should also consider if the rental company offers breakdown services or not.   

  • Get a clear understanding of your Rental- Always read the terms and conditions before booking, especially if you are booking online. Is there any extra cost involved for additional drivers? Is it mandatory to list their names in the contract. In some countries there are restrictions on interstate travel, so you may want to get a clear understanding about those as well. One way car rentals can levy heavy drop off charges, if you are going for it. Getting a clear understanding will save you some serious dollars.   

  • Hidden Costs- Enticing cheap car rentals can be seen advertised all over the internet, but the hidden cost might inflate the actual cost by a big margin. Insurance, gas bills, additional driver fees, local taxes are important points to consider. Cheap car rentals are available at Cheaper Car Rentals.
