postheadericon How Does a Car Rental Work?

A car rental is a vehicle that can be used temporarily for a fee. Most people get one after an accident or during a vacation.

Why? Getting a rental car helps them get around despite the fact they do not have access to their own personal vehicle or don’t own a vehicle at all. It is a convenience that provides transportation for thousands of people each year.

The individual who needs a car must contact a rental car company and contract out for a vehicle. This can be done online, over the phone or in the office of the rental company.

At this point, this person has to communicate to a car rental agent about several things: dates of rental, type of rental car, and desired price.

After these details are worked out, the individual renting the car must show a valid driver’s license, sign a contract and determine if the rental will be picked up by him or delivered to another address. Read the rest of this entry »

postheadericon About Car Rentals

Renting a car is a great idea in many instances, particularly when you are going out of town and need access to a vehicle for the duration of the time you will be there. Renting a car is very simple.

The main requirement is that the individual renting be at least 25 years of age, as rental companies do not like to rent to young people.

Warning

Though the main requirement for renting a car is that you be at least 25 years old, most car rental companies have a few other requirements as well.

These include having a credit or debit card (most car rental companies require a card as a deposit for reserving a vehicle) and having a good driving record.

Many companies screen potential renters by checking their driving records as reported by the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles). If you have a major offense under your belt, such as a DUI, you will most likely be rejected.

Considerations

When renting a car, there are a lot of potential fees to take into consideration.

These fees are daily rental rates (which might include unlimited mileage), additional drivers fees (if more than one person plans to take the wheel), airport rental fees, young driver fees, fuel charges (if you don’t return the vehicle with a full tank, you might be charged), car drop-off fees and child safety seat fees.
