Renting a Car Out in the UK

Posted on July 17, 2017 at 11:46 pm

Renting a car is often something that people do on holiday, but it may also be necessary to rent a car in the UK from time to time. If this is the case, make sure you know what your rights are before you rent a car. Here are some things to think about:

• You should be able to take out your own insurance. If a company claims you have to take out their insurance policy, they are just trying to make more money out of you. Avoid companies like this.
• You should be provided with a spar tyre. There should be a spare tyre on any vehicle you rent so make sure it is there and make sure it is adequate.
• Make sure you know how much fuel needs to be in the vehicle when you return it. You should not have to return it with more fuel than you receive it with, so make a note of how full the tank is.

Breakdown cover can come in incredibly useful for car owners and people who use company cars. It will ensure that you’re always able to get yourself out of difficult situations on the road where you might otherwise end up being stranded. It’s something that you should seriously consider for your vehicle.

Many different companies offer breakdown cover and there will be lots of different levels. This means it is a service that can work for all budgets. Explore the different options and find one that is right for you. Some companies will also offer services like driveway cover, so that if your car won’t start, you can give them a call then as well.

The main benefit of breakdown cover is peace of mind. You will know that you are covered wherever you are and whatever you might be doing. If you have a company car, speak to your boss or fleet manager to ensure that you have some form of breakdown cover.
