Written by Colm Brady who is the business development director with Europcar Ireland it was giving general advice when hiring a car.
Plenty of advice is in the article including -
Fuel problems when hiring a car -
There are various fuel options available with car rental. Ensure that Pickup Full and Return Full are available for short trips – ignoring this advice could be an expensive mistake .
Some companies allow you to prepay for the fuel at a discount and this means you don't have to worry about refuelling on return. When leaving the airport, take note where the nearest petrol station is when you pass it. Ensure your fuel level is also noted on your rental agreement.Insurance -
Insurance is another big area where potential problems can arise. Always check what insurance is included in the rate and what excess (the first part of a claim you must pay yourself) is required. Be particularly careful when travelling to the USA or Canada as you need to have collision damage waiver (CDW) or loss damage waiver (LDW) included in the rate. When picking up and dropping off your car, check it for any damage – and make sure this is noted on your rental agreement or damage report.
We suggest you consider buying separate car hire excess insurance. Blue Insurances' Carhireexcess.com is worth looking at find out more here
