Things You Should Know Before Renting A Vehicle

By Jason Hall_

You may think that there is nothing to renting a vehicle or car hire whether traveling on business or bumming around on vacation. One thing is for certain, the following information is important for everyone who rents a vehicle to know.

1. When you are quoted a price for a vehicle rental, this is just a base rate. This amount does not include taxes, surcharges or other fees associated with the rental. Also, you may be limited to the amount of miles that you can drive and after that you may be charged an additional amount per mile. Insurance is another item that is not included in the base rate that you are being quoted.

2. Many car rental agencies do not provide their own maintenance on their vehicles, and this is something that you need to find out before hand. It may just be that if your vehicle breaks down that you could be paying out of pocket for towing expenses and car repairs. If this is the case, this could leave you cash poor and without enough money to enjoy your vacation. You really need to find out exactly how your rental car company will handle it if your car breaks down.

3. You should know that under your vehicle rental contract that you too have responsibilities. These include being a licensed driver, following the rules of the road, and not allowing anyone who is not on the rental agreement to operate that vehicle. Breaking these rules will most likely leave you burdening the full responsibility if something goes wrong.

4. To avoid any surprises on your trip make sure that you are reading over every word before you sign it because once you do, the contract is legally binding and there really isn’t much that you can do to get out of it if something were to happen when you were on your vacation.
