Selecting a Vehicle

Renting a Car?

Think carefully before selecting your vehicle. If you are travelling with a lot of stuff you might need a safari or sumo. If you are planning to save money or to travel alone you may book a small car like i20.

Booking Your Car

If you need a car for a small duration you may go for major renting companies in your city. If you need a vehicle for more than a week or so you should prefer a local company for the same.

Always shop around. Check the major booking agencies and aggregator sites to get an idea of what rates are available. You can also find out if any discount is being provided or not.

Understanding Your Rental

While booking a car always look for the terms and conditions of the contract along with the list of restrictions if any. Be sure that you understand the terms including list of restrictions quite well before signing the contract. If pertinent, ask about any restrictions on interstate travel. Check for cities where offices of the company are situated. For one-way car rentals, ask about drop-off charges. They can be exorbitant.

The True Cost of Car Rentals

Buyer beware: The rate you see advertised in big print may become so inflated with state and local taxes which include the toll charges, parking charges, additional driver fees, insurance, petrol or diesel bills and drop-off charges that you end up paying more than double what you expected. Learn more about these extra charges in Car Rental Hidden Costs.

At Pickup Time

Do confirm the pickup time with the rental company. Make sure that there is no confusion between any of the party.

Returning Your Car

Always take ownership of the vehicle after completely filed tank; similarly always fill the tank yourself before returning the vehicle so that you are only paying for the amount of fuel you actually used. Try to avoid the fuel stations right near the airport where you are dropping off your car — the prices tend to be highest there. Instead, fill up a few miles away. Before leaving the vehicle, check to be sure you have not left any personal belongings. Do not forget to check the trunk! The most common lost articles include cell phones, sunglasses and umbrellas, etc.
