Useful Things For Renting a Car

Posted By on Oct 27, 2015 |

Travelling in today’s world became much easier than some 10 or 20 years ago since all bigger cities have car rental services that offer a variety of cars. Renting cars is great tool, made for achieving better experience when it comes to enjoying landscapes and outskirts of cities, but also for accomplishing regular everyday tasks. I have been travelling for more than 10 years and I have always used rental car services. Some of them were better, some were worse but the truth is that these services saved my time and expanded my experience of enjoying different cities. That’s why I will try to give some directions you should follow when you want to rent a car for your travels.
First of all, you must do research. When you decide where you will go for a vacation, you should search for car rentals companies in the city you are going, or near it at least. Make a list and give a quick look on prices, so you can compare them to the other services. Saving few bucks in the beginning seems like nothing special, but if you rent a car for several days or weeks, you will see the significant difference. Always compare prices and look for discounts !
When you decide which company you will use, determine the type of vehicle you will need. If you want to cruise around the city with your girlfriend, then some coupe will be perfect choice. For example Ferrari Spyder or Nissan GTR will do the work. The price is reasonable and the cars are worth that price. In case you want more intense and faster ride throughout the city, then considering Lamborghini or Porsche is the right thing. Lamborghini cars are famous for their fast performance so the high-speed driving is guaranteed if you choose this car. On the other hand, if you want to explore some off road terrains and try riding through mud, then Jeep or Mercedes G series are exactly what you need ! With these vehicles, you don’t have to worry about the terrain – just pick up your friends, head to the nearest rugged terrains and have fun.
The third thing you want to consider is insurance. When you rent a car, the company will offer you various insurances to buy, where the price range varies from $10 to $25 per day. Insurance is magnificent thing since you don’t have to worry about the damage of the vehicle in case of some accident. But did you know that many credit card companies provide coverage for card holders without any hidden and additional fees ? Just be sure to deposit enough money on a the card, to have money in case of accident. Just be sure to check this option with your credit card company. If your credit card approves this, you are not obliged to buy insurance in rental company, although in some states you must buy an insurance. In Orange County and California generally, you are responsible for insurance on your own – so it’s up to you how you will choose to insure yourself in case of accident.
