Choosing which car hire company depends on a lot of factors and often the determining factor is location or opening hours. Your company might have special rates with a car rental company and wish you to use that company. Finally which rental company has the car that appeals to you. With so much competition there may still be several car hire companies ’still in the frame’ so it comes down to price.
It is pretty important not to just choose the cheapest quote as that could be a false economy. To find the cheapest you need to work out what the final bill is going to be. Low headline prices inevitably have lots of unavoidable extras such as tax, insurance and mileage charges. The inclusive rental includes necessary items such as insurance, CDW, mileage, theft protection, location surcharges and tax.. In this example if each km cost 20p and you did not take any other items such as insurance, if you drive more than only 32 kms it is cheaper to have all inclusive!
It is often best not to book direct with a car hire company, but through a broker using their specially negotiated rates. Here again there are differences which you may wish to consider for instance Holiday Autos charge 100% cancellation fee whereas cheap-car-rental charge a cancellation charge equal to just one days rental.
Have you considered insurance. It maybe your own insurance will cover driving a hire car but it may only be a limited cover and the car rental company may well require a larger deposit. You should also check the cover provided and consider carefully the options given by the car rental company as an accident, particularly for car hire in USA and car hire in Canada could be very, very costly.
Before driving off make a close inspection of the car to see if it has any scratches or had an accident. The paint work should be checked but also remember to check the interior, the tyres and low down where the car might have hit a kerb. You should draw the car rental company’s attention to any defects and you should ask them to note it both on your copy of the agreement and theirs. If you do not report any damage you are likely to be charged for the damage when you return the car. We don’t want that do we.
