Luton Airport Car Hire

London Luton Airport Car Hire

Luton Airport car hireWith the large number of car hire companies to choose from, getting the best deal on the right car and avoiding additional charges can often prove a challenge, so we have written some tips to help you:

  1. Booking early will ensure that you get the right size and style of car. And bear in mind that special vehicles like 4x4s, diesels or cabriolets tend to be available in smaller numbers.

  2. Book extras at the start because
    Items like child seats can run out. You can add extras to your booking later but you might miss out by doing this.

  3. Once the booking is made the confirmation details will be sent to you by e-mail, post or text. If you want to make any changes have any queries contact the company you have booked with as soon as possible.

  4. Remember to have the details of your car hire reservation with you when you collect your vehicle so that you have everything to hand in case of any queries.

  5. Once you have collected the keys check the vehicle for any bumps or scratches and point anything you notice to the staff at the collection point. Failing to do this may result in you being charged for damage you did not cause.

  6. Switch on the ignition and check the fuel level before you set off. It is usually cheaper to agree to bring the car back with a full tank, but make sure you start off with a full tank!

  7. Petrol is often more expensive if you buy it at the airport so when you are returning your car fill it up shortly before you arrive at the airport and you will find the prices are cheaper. Try locating a suitable petrol station on the way out so that you know where to refill on your return.

  8. Check you have details of the local emergency numbers and roadside assistance for your car hire company. The emergency kit included with the car should include a reflective triangle or jacket.

  9. Before you start your journey take time to familiarise yourself with the car by finding out where the switches for the indicators and lights are, check the mirrors and position of your seat.

  10. Allow an extra half hour to hand back the car at the end of your stay, because although the paperwork is minimal but there may be a queue.
