There are a few things you should have with you at all times while hiring a car. The Brisbane team here at Five Star Car Rentals has come up with a short, handy list. Enjoy!
Having your driver’s licence on you at all times while you are driving isn’t just common sense or a car hire requirement, it is the law. So, unless you want to get into trouble with the police and incur heavy fines, penalties or suspensions, it is best to have your driver’s licence on you at all times when you’re driving. This is especially applicable when you are driving a car that you have rented from a company so that if anything goes wrong, the authorities and the car hire company are able to identify who you are and act accordingly. Not to mention you are going to need your driver’s licence to book your rental car in the first place. If you’re travelling from overseas and your licence isn’t in roman alphabets, you might need to get an international driving permit. So, as you can see, having your driver’s licence with you is very important throughout the whole car hire process.
Most rental companies require some form of credit card for advance payments for car hires and rental cars. Some companies also require security deposits and prefer credit cards as the payment method. So, it is very important to have your credit card and credit card details on you when you are about to get a car rental.
Don’t forget to keep your booking receipt or voucher in handy! Even though the car hire company will most likely have everything in their computerized systems, it’d still make things easier if you had your voucher. You should probably hang on to the receipt until your trip is done so you can prove you are driving a rental car if the need ever arises.
