Choosing the correct car rental business will save you all kind of annoyance and, mainly money. There are various points to take into account regarding this choice, and we intend to display each one in a clear way. Please remember that a car rental is both an inversion and a liability, and these two things shouldn’t be higher than renters’ benefits. That is to say, in exchange for rental liabilities and expenses we want to get comfort, pleasure and efficiency, but not difficulties. For this reason, you must make sure of choosing the correct company when hiring this kind of service.
The first aspect to take into account is to inquire whether the company you work for has trade agreements with a car rental business. This kind of agreements is very common and it is a very important point to bear in mind. Trade agreements between your employer and the rental company will mean you two important benefits: firstly, significant money saving due to the discounts agreed between the parties; secondly, special treatments you will receive from the car rental company, since it is committed to giving special assistance to its commercial partners’ employees.
The second point is related to partnership programs the car rental company may have with hotels, banks, credit cards and airlines. Through these partnerships, customers can enjoy special discounts. For example, if you find out that the car rental business called X has a trade agreement with a hotel chain called Z, you will able to stay in one of the hotels of this chain and you will enjoy a discount on the vehicles rental. In addition to this, airlines often offer their passengers discounts on car rentals of a certain company. You must be aware of which are the airlines that offer this kind of service at your rental location.
The third thing to bear in mind is to get to know if you are a member of any organization which offers car rental discounts. This point is usually ignored for two reasons: the first one is because customers don’t think certain organizations can have any connection with this kind of services. The second one is related to the fact that many people are members of a particular organization, but they do not know it or they have forgotten it (they may have once fulfilled a form and they may even receive periodic information but they don’t pay attention to it).
In the fourth place, you must find out whether the car rental company you want to hire has the vehicles you want, as some confine themselves to renting just a certain type of cars, while others offer various types. The important thing is to get to know about the cars features they offer for rentals: the make, model, size, if they are new or used, national or imported. You may find this point unimportant, since you will only drive this car for a few days. However, you should remember that vehicles introduce the person and you will likely spend several hours a day in it. If you travel on a business trip, the type of car you’ll rent won’t be indifferent to you. The car you drive is the first thing your partners or potential customers will see. Besides, as you will be traveling many hours a day, you’d better feel comfortable and find your trip enjoyable. Remember the vehicle will be practically your home during the whole trip and, undoubtedly, a good a bad traveling companion, according to the case.
Finally, you must know if the company you hire is available for you 24 hours a day. This assures you that if your flight is delayed you won’t have trouble with your car rental and you won’t need to wait until the next day to obtain it. Companies that offer a 24-hour service enables you to request their services any time you need them: if you have any problem with the car or you have to go back home or to a different location and you have to return the car immediately.
