Check out places

: Make sure you explore a few options and get quotes and rate cards from a number of places well in advance.



Verify carefully

: Ask for the copy of hire contract and verify it. Confirm all the details of the rental agreement in writing before you book.



Refund policy

: Check if there’re any restrictions on distance travelled. Also clarify whether you are entitled to a refund if you return the car early.



Price check

: Check the price charged for booking in advance against the price to hire if you simply turn up at a rental outlet. Sometimes, it is cheaper to make a booking online than in person.



Hidden cost

: Read the terms and conditions carefully and watch out for hidden fees and charges.
