What’s this all about?
Whether you fancy taking a desert road trip or simply a run
around to take you to the shop and back, there are plenty of
car rentals options available for you but choosing the most
reliable can be difficult when you’re spoilt for choice.
Avoid renting out a rust bucket on your travels and stay safe
by following these top tips:
Timing is key
If you can plan your road trip outside of peak time, such as
school holidays and the summer vacation period, there will
be more cars to choose from and care hire providers may
Know your terrain
There is a difference between driving on a sophisticated
motorway and a rugged outback. Consider if you will need
added extras such as winter tyres. Make sure your car rental
matches the style of road trip you are taking.
Book in advance
Do you have your flights and accommodation booked? Well,
what is stopping you booking your car hire in advance as
well? You don’t need to know your itinerary inside-out as
long as you think you’ll need a car; you’ll be able to take
advantage of early-bird deals.
This also reduces the hassle of a hiring a car upon your arrival
at your destination, so kick-start your holiday by having your
rental car ready and waiting for you to drive away.
Don’t cut any shortcuts
If you’re in any doubt about your navigation skills while
you’re driving somewhere familiar to you, tick the option on
the rental form to include a satnav. The last thing we want is
you getting lost, so consider bringing along a backup map in
case the technology starts to fail.
