Car Rental SafetyWritten by Carl Spanier
Vacations are traditionally a time when we let our hair down and have fun, and let all our humdrum daily worries stay at home to wait for our return. And while escaping daily grind should be our primary vacation concern, we must not allow holiday atmosphere deprive us of all good sense. Vacation safety is of paramount importance, and must remain foremost in our mind wherever our travels take us.
A car rental can be a fun way to get around on vacation, but we must always remember that driving in an unfamiliar location can be challenging and sometimes stressful. So before you book your hire car, ensure that driving is right holiday transport for you – sometimes trying out local public transport can be fun! But if driving is choice for you, remember to put your safety first. Always have insurance when hiring a car, so that you will have financial back up should an accident occur. Talk to your insurance dealer to ensure that you, and any other drivers, are covered.
Ensure that you have all appropriate documentation with you, including your driver’s licence. Make sure that you have an up-to-date map of all areas that you intend to drive in, and make a note of local emergency numbers. It is useful to bring along a basic emergency kit of your own too, just in case, including basic medical supplies. It is a good idea too to have some food to hand as well – tempers will fray even more if hunger is a factor in a breakdown situation.
Exotic Car RentalsWritten by Carl Spanier
There are probably very few drivers who haven’t at one point or another dreamt of parading around city with top down and designer sunglasses on, casually ignoring onlookers who regard you with open lust as you cruise along in your extremely expensive, top of line car. Unfortunately, for most of us mere mortals, paying mortgage every month is difficult enough, never mind coming up with dough to buy and maintain a fancy car. But there is a way to indulge that long-held fantasy, even if only briefly – by renting an exotic car.
Besides range of middle of range, functional getting-you-from-At-to-B type cars that car rental companies have on their books, many are now expanding into a growing market – exotic car rentals. Whether you are a businessman who wants to seem a little flashier while on that company trip, or simply want to indulge a dream, many people are exploring their holiday destination in a vehicle that goes well beyond ordinary. Driving a two-seater sports car is neither practical nor cost effective for most of us on a long-term basis, but exotic car rentals mean that we can indulge ourselves for a special occasion, and return to our more practical mode of transport tomorrow.
