Renting a car can be a smart move. However, it’s a good idea to understand what renting involves and how you can get the best value for your money before you rent. To help with that we’ve put together a quick checklist for things you need to check before renting a car. Find out important information here Auto Mobile Insur on renting a car in Israel. Be sure not to skip over these important stages.
Where do you need to pick the car up from?
Rental companies aren’t doing you a disservice when they charge more to collect (or drop off) at an airport. They are required to pay the airport a fee for the vehicle on their premises. If you need a car in a hurry for a business meeting following a flight you’ll have to take the hit, but you could save a little by arranging pick up elsewhere if you’re not pushed for time.
Choose a car that meets your needs
There’s no point in renting a tiny compact vehicle if you have a large family to transport. It’s good to save money but not at the expense of comfort. It’s also important to reserve a child seat (or two) if you need one to save on time when you pick up the car.
Take your reservation with you
If you book online make sure you take the reservation form with you when you collect the car. This allows you to be confident that you’re getting exactly what you ordered and it also reduces the chances of being billed twice by mistake. See helpful hints at here Autotyme Automotive for a less stressful time behind the wheel of a rental car before you make your reservation.
Read through the contract
You’ll receive a contract to sign, so make sure you read it through (in conjunction with your reservation) and check to see that the rates, the type of vehicle, etc. are those that you expected. Also ensure that your pick up and drop off dates are completed correctly.
Check for damage
The responsibility for a rental car is yours. Rental companies do check their vehicles for damage when they are returned but like everyone else – they’re only human and it’s possible that damage was missed during their inspection. Go over the vehicle before you accept it and check for damage (try the lights, radio, etc. as well as checking the exterior). If you find anything make sure you have it recorded before you drive away.
Make sure you have a credit or debit card
One of the things you need to check before renting a car is whether you have a credit or debit card on you. Israel car rental companies, as acceptable in other companies in the world, need to take a card imprint to reserve or take away a car. This acts as a security deposit for the car itself, so don’t forget to take one. Do not go behind the wheel of your rental car until you have finished doing critical inspections which are provided at this website Bus Driverse .
