Perks of Hiring a Car

by Armstrong Louis HR

It is not possible to drive our cars to every place we go, not even for an adventure junkie. It becomes hectic, lacks maintenance, and travel expenses go out of hand.  Renting a car does away with all the problems faced by a traveller, be it for business, leisure tourism or serious adventure.

Hiring a car grants flexibility and freedom to any kind of travel, within the country or abroad. Car hire has become an obvious trend and option for many nations like Spain, South Africa, etc. In the past few years, Cape Town has seen a drastic rise in car rental services. There are some precautions that should be taken by all kinds of travellers before opting for cash car hire in Cape Town.


a.    Compare and Report: It is always advantageous to research and compare between car rental services in a particular area to avail better cars at cheaper rates. There are options to report a poor service or even the company if the customer is not satisfied. This keeps a check on most companies and they aim to provide better quality cars at reasonable prices.

b.    Hidden charges: Many car hire services do not maintain transparency when it comes to costs, insurances, taxes, surcharges, registration charges or extra amenities to be fitted to the car like the carriage, child seat, etc. This too needs comparing and research. It is easy to book cars online nowadays but that too can charge extra money as easier the service, higher will be the price. It is better to clarify all the details of the charges being levied with the customer service.

c.    Bigger names: There are always some bigger brands in every kind of services. Car hiring too is not excluded. It is always better to think beyond bigger brand names and opt for independent companies that may save more than 20% of the expenses.

d.    Insurance offers and airport rentals: Many rental services reach the inner grounds of the airport and fool customers with higher prices just for being in the vicinity. Insurance schemes are simply made to cheat the customers by scaring them. They make a lot of profit from these insurance plans. It is better to take some time, understand and research them before paying extra.

e.    Coupons and discounts: Always look for coupons and discounts to save up from paying extra to the car rental company. This saves up the travel expenses to a great deal.

f.     Technical Assistance: While booking a car, many companies provide technical assistance and thoroughly check the car to ensure safety. These companies tend to be more reliable than those having an irritable and negative attitude towards every question asked by the customer. A thorough checking of the car is always an extra benefit before hiring the car.

Always remember that it is your money and it is you who decides the best for yourself. Falling into wrong temptations and investing money for a bad quality car is exactly what most bad quality car rental companies aim for.
