Being used to drive your own car around the city for a long time, you may feel uncomfortable using public transport or even a taxi. However, any car needs repairs once in a while, which can last quite a long time. It is also a common situation when there is a long pause between selling your old car and buying a new one. What can you do if you cannot live without a fast and comfortable driving your own car?
The best solution in this scenario is car rental. Just like before, you can plan your day down to the minute and be mobile enough. The rental price is low, but on the plus side, you do not have to wait for a taxi and uncomfortable public transport.
Tips for choosing a rental car when your own car is being repaired:
- Look for a rental car that you are already used to: either your current or the previous one. You will not have to spend time getting familiar with a new car; instead you will immediately start using it with no hesitations. Rental car facilities have large fleets where you can find the best option.
- Are you an experienced driver and you do not worry whether you have driven the car already or not? Then pay attention to the practicality of the vehicle, namely gas consumption, compact size, and maneuverability. If you drive in the countryside most of the time, then pay attention to off-road SUVs with GPS navigation system installed.
- Choose a car according to your social status. When you plan a meeting with an important business partner or client, have a look at business and premium models. If there are no events like that, then follow your needs only.
- Before buying a new car, it would a good idea to look for the exact model at the rental facilities. No car dealer will offer you a test drive of this kind. You personally will be able to assess all the specifications of the car in action, and only after that make a final decision.
We recommend you to carefully read the rental agreement: all terms and contacts are specified there. Never hesitate to ask for more information. As we all know, the worst question is the question that remained unasked.
