Are you being ripped off with your UK car hire?


 
Travel & Tourism

Here's a few tips on how not to get ripped off when hiring your holiday car hire in the UK

With the summer holidays almost upon those of us in the UK are looking forward to our fortnight away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and relax in our droves along the beaches up and down the Mediterranean.

Whether it is the Algarve or the Costas, France or Italy, it is much nicer to hire our transport than have to rely on local bus and coach services. That is not to imply that there is anything wrong with the respective public transport services but simply that it is far better to explore at a pace and time scale that suits our holiday mood best

But herein lies' a potential problem, one that could hinder our precious holiday and cost us a small fortune in the bargain.

But there's a possible problem, one that could ruin our beloved holiday and end up costing us a small fortune in the bargain. So, what on earth is this article driving at?

It's about hiring a car that is

both cheap and gives us the right protection that insurance companies

say we must have in order to validate any claim that we may have to

make How do we go about this and what are the traps that we should avoid?

Firstly, it will always work out cheaper if you book your hire car well in advance of your travel dates. This will also help to ensure that you are more than likely to be able to book a vehicle of your preferred choice.

Be prepared to do a lot of searching around for the best deals by visiting a few individual sites to get some idea of what competitive rates are on offer.

If you are pressed for time however or frustrated by having to perform endless searches, then try going for a company website that does the comparisons for you.

Online car hire companies like http://www.getcarhire.com/uk.htm can

save you the time and hassle as they check most of the top competing

sites to get you the best hire rates.

So far, so good! But here comes the tricky bit, how do you know if the company that you hired your vehicle with offers you the protection that you need?

One thing is for certain any company that you hire a car with in the UK will try and sell you their preferred insurance policy as they will no doubt earn a substantial commission for doing so.

But is it the right one for you and does it cover you for the essentials such as tyre and windscreen damage, excess insurance and collision damage waiver (CDW)?

Beware of staff at airport check-in desks who may pressurise you into

buying their local policies, this is almost always unnecessary,

especially if you've already organised your own insurance.

What are the best options? Make sure that you shop around to find the best insurance policy that covers you for all the essentials so that you can simply relax and enjoy your holiday as you should.

One further item to note is, to make sure that you find out what the fuel policy is? Most companies offer a full-empty or a full-full tank policy.

A full-empty policy could potentially mean that you lose out twice as

you will invariably pay more for the full tank than you would at the

pump and you will also lose out when returning the vehicle as it is

practically impossible to return the car on empty.

The full-full policy is definitely the better of the 2 options but it will mean that you will have to pay a slightly higher rental charge. This is offset though by the fact that you don't have to worry needlessly about whether you're likely to run out of fuel just before you reach the airport.

Hopefully, this article might help to ensure that you don't get ripped off when hiring a car and that you can enjoy a relaxing time without having some of the avoidable niggles that can so often ruin a holiday.
