Car Hire Service Guidelines Explained

Aug 1, 2008
Car hire services are simple in stature: they provide a car for travelers or for those who direly need a car, and the consumer pays a hefty fee in return. But to get the most out of the said car hire service, consumers will have to follow strict guidelines and tips to ensure their money isn't being burned.

If one was to make a reservation for a car hire service months in advance, they would essentially avoid all of the travel season woes that clout the car hire service in busier months. Not only will a consumer be more likely to not get a vehicle, but waiting until the last minute will also ensure that a consumer is paying more because demand has increased as well.

Buying the insurance of a car hire service is a good idea if that rental car is going to be had for a temporary period of time. But for longer visits, it is probably a better idea to see if one's existing auto insurance will apply to rental cars as well. This is because most car hire agencies will have high insurance rates that, in short periods of time, are manageable.

Consumers like to take price cuts where they can. This is possible in not adding any additional drivers to the car rental plan, but it should be argued that not doing so can be a huge mistake. If the consumer is caught not driving the vehicle themselves, the contract will be void- even in the case of emergency situations!

Inspection of the vehicle is important if one is going to stay clean of any false accusations. Some car hire services may not see a certain dent or scratch the first time around, but may notice it once the car is returned. To avoid such unfair fees, it is vital to inspect the car with an agent from the car hire service.

Contracts are actual binding agreements, and they should be treated as such. If one doesn't follow each clause and rule that was put into place, they could face high fees or worse. Doing something as menial as driving over a certain number of miles will put some consumers at a loss of money, thanks to high fees on extra mileage. Other technicalities such as driving ranges can also cost quite a bit in penalties.

In Conclusion

In the end, a car hire service is going to charge quite a bit of money for a rental car. But keeping the price down is easy once one knows the limits of their contract and their rights supplied to them. Be sure to shop around for best rates to get the best deal, and consult the Internet for more information.
