Top 10 Facts & Tips For USA Car Hire

Hi all,

Car Hire USA can be a bit of a minefield for car rental virgins, actually it can be confusing for even the most experienced travellers.

In today’s post I will list my top 10 USA Car Hire facts and tips.

  1. Remember that all rental vehicles are quoted as “or similar”, we can never guarantee make or model of our cars, this includes mileage, luggage capacity and car extras (cruise control, iPod adapter etc)
  2. In most cases our suppliers will  require you to leave an imprint of a  Credit Card in the lead drivers name for security.
  3. The UK full driving licence is made up of two parts, the credit card style part and the paper part.
  4. To avoid the whole family queuing for car hire at the rental desk, if possible, send one person off to get the car rental while others collect the suitcases.
  5. Fully read your USA car hire rental agreement before you sign it, make sure you are totally happy with the contract before you enter in to it.
  6. You do not need to take any additional extras when collecting your hire.
  7. If you do purchase an optional extra locally, most suppliers offer a 24 hrs cooling off period, to remove something from your rental agreement simply contact the supplier locally.
  8. To speed up collection at your pick up office it’s worth pre-registering your details.
  9. If you are under 25, it generally works out more cost effective to take advantage of our young drivers policy.
  10. Its always worth weighing up the cost between our inclusive rate and our gold rate even if you don’t need additional drivers. Most suppliers terms now ask for customers to pre-purchase their fuel upon arrival and return empty, these prices can sometimes be more than the difference between inclusive and gold.

These are my top 10 facts and tips….
