Car Rental is the most adventurous and affordable way to explore any unfamiliar territory. Car rental is a particularly wonderful way to see areas of tropical and scenic beauty, giving you the freedom and independence to plan your itinerary around the destination rather than transportation. Car rental is generally based upon 24 consecutive hours, so a 7 day car rental is based upon 7 consecutive 24 hour periods. Minimum car rental is normally for one day, and with many car rental companies long term car rental is available as well

Insurance – More Than Just A Good Idea

It is in the best interest of the renter to pay a little extra for the rental car company’s insurance if you’re not 100% certain about your personal insurance coverage. Car rentals in MOST foreign countries will include collision protection and theft insurance (where applicable) but only the minimum required amount of third-party liability protection as determined by the applicable laws of each country/province. In countries that do not include the collision/theft insurance in the rental rate, Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Protection should be considered unless the rental is charged to a credit card which contains that insurance coverage. Always read the fine print, however, since there are some things that may not be covered in the insurance plan, such as driving down an unpaved road in a conventional car.

What’s In A Name? Big Company vs. Local Shop.

There are small agencies that have rental cars for particular regions, and national companies with hundreds of locations across the country. You should use your own judgment in choosing whether to go with a small company or not. A smaller rental car agency may not have a large inventory, so calling ahead is a must. Car rental companies are used to booking cars far ahead of time, so you shouldn’t feel silly when you’re making reservations, since it quite normal to need advance reservations to get a cheap rental car. Often, larger rental car [] companies will lower the per-day rate for customers who rent for 3 or more days; and these longer rentals are often less expensive than renting for just a single day. Cheap car rentals are all over the internet, both on the websites of car rental companies and on travel websites. It pays to shop around to get the best rental car deal.

Time To Head For The Hills!

Renting a car is great for a weekend get away, to impress someone or even to cover your own car needing repair. In fact, the exact reasons for renting a car are as varied as the individual driver. Car rental is always subject to the terms and conditions of the rental agreement at the time of rental though, so make sure you read everything thoroughly before signing. Whether you’re enjoying water views on a coastal drive or just want to do away with slow-paced rigid guided tours, a car rental is one of the best ways to get around.
