Below are a few tips about what to look for when researching and booking car hire:
Book in advance: Particularly if you are wanting to rent a car in the summer because most companies are likely to sell out and prices will go up. Book as far in advance as possible to get the best price.
Check your eligibility to hire a car: This could mean your age or your driver’s licence. Some car hire companies have a maximum age and all have a minimum age, which can differ by country. It is sometimes possible to rent at a younger age if you pay a surcharge. Also check the validity of your driver’s licence as the standard is to have a full, clean driver’s licence which has been held for at least a year.
Check the agreement inclusions: This relates to the level of cover your quote includes. Most companies will include Vehicle Damage Cover and Vehicle Theft Cover (also referred to as Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Protection). If your quote does not include this level of cover then you could be liable for the full cost of repair or replacement if your rental car is damaged or stolen.
Book the correct size car: It may seem obvious but be sure when you book that you can fit in all your luggage and passagers in AND travel around in comfort
