Hiring a Car – Tips & Advice
Are you hiring a car for the first time? Here are some things you should know:
Your provider will expect that you return the car in the condition you picked it up in and this usually includes a full tank. A good idea is to check the vehicle for any scratches, dents or other issues before you drive out.
A valid credit card will be required to place a bond for the time of your rental.
Make sure you read the terms and conditions of your rental. If you’re not going to be the only driver, make sure you arrange it at the car rental office before you leave for your trip. Always check details of your rental terms and conditions.
To save on insurance, arrange for additional excess cover before you rent a car.
