5 Questions to Ask Before Renting a Car with Your Children
To have a stress-free road trip experience with your kids, make sure to ask yourself these questions before renting a car.
1. How many of you are traveling?
First and foremost, think about how many people are travelling and how far you're going. Yes, you may think a hatch will be fine for four people, but if you've got three weeks of travel ahead you may need more space for luggage.
2. Automatic or Stick-shift
Next, always double-check to make sure the car you want to rent has the transmission you're after. There's nothing more embarrassing than bunny hopping down the main strip of Vegas in front of all those showgirls, simply because you didn't realize you weren't getting an automatic.
3. Baby on board?
Need a child seat? Always find out how much extra it's going to be, whether or not they're up to code, and if there are any cleaning costs involved.
4. Insurance costs
Always check out the insurance costs. If you think this holiday might be a good chance to let your 17-year-old son learn to drive, you might want to think again.
5. Shop around
Always remember to shop around! Ask yourself are you really being offered the best deal? Ask about the possibility of an upgrade cause you just never know your luck! Just remember to check to see if the car you're offered covers all the bases.
