Travel is stressful. There is lots of things you need to remember and think about to make sure it goes smoothly. Choosing the right rental car can mean the difference between a safe, comfortable trip and an unsuccessful one. Here are our top 5 tips to choosing a rental car that will be perfect for your trip to Poland!
Consider Vehicle Size
Traveling with children, lots of people, or tons of luggage? Rent a vehicle that will be spacious enough to accommodate your trip’s needs. Large sedans or SUV’s are great if you are looking for space! If you are looking for cheaper alternatives and aren’t in need of copious space, consider renting a smaller vehicle to save money on gas and rental rates!
Shop Around for the Best Deal
You can find different rental car companies all over the world. It is best to shop around since sometimes locally owned companies can offer the cheapest rates. Be sure to look up reviews of the company beforehand though and check their customer reviews!
Understand Your Rental Contract
If you’re booking a vehicle online for your trip, be sure to read the terms and conditions carefully. If you’re booking over the phone, be sure to ask about the rental restrictions. Ask questions like, “How long will you hold my rental vehicle if I am late picking it up?” and, “Is there a fee for additional drivers, and must they be added onto the rental contract?”
Understand the True Cost of Your Car Rental
This is an important topic. The rate which you see from the buyer may not be the true cost of your rental. The price of rental vehicles can become inflated by things like airport surcharges, additional driver fees, local taxes, insurance, and gasoline bills. Make sure you are paying what you think you will be paying!
Pick a Vehicle You like and Want to Drive
You will be spending lots of time in the vehicle you choose so make sure it’s one that you want to drive. Picking a vehicle that handles differently to what you are used to may cause unnecessary stress and anxiety. Choose a vehicle you will be comfortable in so you can enjoy your trip.
