Safety first: car rentals

  1. 1. Safety first: car rentals Holiday Extras
  2. 2. 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:
  3. 3. 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 negotiate discounts.
  4. 4. 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.
  5. 5. 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.
  6. 6. 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.
