Do’s and Dont’s of Car Hire

Make the right decisions

Do’s of Car Hire

  • Choose the Right Car for Hire-When choosing the right rental car, you need to consider the following: boot space depending on how big your load is, passenger seats depending on how many people will be in the rental car, legroom, and headroom for your comfort, and fuel economy that fits your budget. If you’re looking for a rental car with the best gas mileage to save fuel on your trip, go for a smaller vehicle model. Also, make sure that you reserve a rental car with automatic transmission if you don’t know how to drive a rental car with manual transmission.
  • Check on period rates; Inquire about the rates for a specific period of time. If you want to rent your rental car for almost a whole week or a whole month, you should inquire about long-term rates as opposed to short-term rates. There are discounts and rebates for long-term rentals. At Call a Ride car rental, we offer discounts of up to 30% on long-term rentals depending on the length of the rental. The longer the rental period, the higher the discount.
  • Inspect the Car before signing anything; Examine the car before signing anything. Some companies view damage as a profit opportunity, so it’s important to inspect your rental car before you rent it. If you’re not the first renter, make notes on the rental agreement noting any damage or scratches, no matter how insignificant. It’s also a good idea to photograph the car from all angles, as this will help in the event of an allegation of damage to the rental. At Call a Ride, we perform a quick check-up of your rental car before you rent it.
  • Assign only one Driver; Some companies charge extra for an additional driver if you’re traveling with a group.

Don’ts of Car Hire

  • Don’t forget to ask about fees. If you book your car rental online, read the company’s terms and conditions carefully and check the rates for each car rental model and additional services. Call the offices and ask about restrictions and mileage limits. Inquire if there are penalties for no-shows, early returns, and refund policies. Inquire about fueling policies, whether the tank is full or free, so you can plan your budget well.
  • Don’t overlook insurance; Some companies will sell you insurance at a cheap price to cover your Rental Car in case of accidents whilst most Car insurance companies’ coverage transfers to the Rental Car during the period of its use. Call your insurance agency first to confirm if you’re adequately covered by the same insurance policy. If not, you can Consider a Car Rental Company’s insurance
