Being a part of the Kolkata car rental services community, I have witnessed a many customers of various car rental agencies to complain about different things and after investigating the matter I came to know that a little bit of cautions might have rescued them from those unwanted circumstances. Therefore, here I am going to provide a checklist for all the customers to avail a smooth car rental service:
o It is better to consult your insurance agent about how much you would be covered while renting a car.
o Consult the provider of road services to know whether the service calls from rental are attended or not.
o Always carry a flashlight in the rental car journey.
Checklist at the Rental Car Counter
o Be sufficed of the maintenance of the car before renting.
o Enquire about the emergency measures in their agency.
o Take all kind of contact information from them prior to the journey.
Checklist During the Journey
o Ask for a manual of owner within the glove box.
o Inspect under-trunk and under-hood.
o Ask the driver if he has an extra lug wrench, jack and tire as they are very necessary.
o Another vital thing is to examine the fluids after opening the hood.
Checklist after Reaching the Destination
o Check twice whether you have taken down all the baggage and small but important things like wallet, phone, watch etc.
Hope this will help you to make your journey a happy one!
