Dos and Don’ts of Car Rentals

Car rentals can be such a convenience when you’re travelling out and about. However, in any rental procedure, there are a few simple steps you can take to make things easier for yourself. Here are a few tips on the dos and don’ts of car rentals brought to you by the Five Star Car Rentals team here in Brisbane. Following these tips will make your car hire experience as seamless as possible.

Dos and Don’ts of Car Rentals


Check Your Car: This is really obvious, but still worth mentioning. Before you start your adventures on a rented car, make sure that everything is in order with your car hire. This includes both paperwork and the physical aspects of the car. You don’t want to be charged for damage you didn’t cause.

Have Proper Documents Ready: Having all your documents ready before you sign the papers is vital. This makes it easier for the rental company to have records on you and it builds trust. Most companies won’t let you rent cars if you don’t have all the proper documents they require.

Choose the right vehicle: It’s vital to choose the right car for your needs. Otherwise, you’ll either end up either paying for features you don’t need or not having all the features you need.


Wait until the Last Minute: Don’t wait until the twelfth hour for securing your car hire. This will make it cheaper and make sure you get the type of car you want and you’ll also most likely get your preferred locations for pick up and drop off.

Cause Damage to the Car: Try to leave the car in the exact condition you received it in. Not only is this courteous, it will save you from being fined.

Sign until You Understand: It is vital to understand the terms and conditions before signing the paperwork. You should read everything carefully.
