Renting a car is has become a trend in Dubai as it has become a more accessible and reliable mode of transport. But when renting a car, you don’t know what you will get. The most essential thing is to rent from a trusted source and be present on the spot and check the car yourself before accepting it. Whether renting for short-term or long-term car rental Dubai, there are a few things you should check. This article will help you check and decide whether to rent a car or not.
Go Around the Car and Make a Video as You Check
Spend a minute going around the car to make sure everything is in order; also make a video while you do it. Check for any visible damage and capture it in the video. If it is late at night, you can use a torch. If you notice any damage, notify the rental company right away. Dents, scratches, and chipped paint are the most visible damages.
Aside from that, you should check the dashboard to determine the fuel level status. To begin, a full tank is always preferable. Also check the headlights for proper operation while checking the fuel level. Another important thing to check are the tyres. We often forget to see the tyre’s condition and end up having trouble during the journey.
You Must Have Insurance
If you’re renting a car, you need to have enough insurance to cover any accidents that happen during your rental period. I personally recommend going with a company like quicklease.ae that gives you an online quote so you can determine what your personal needs are in terms of coverage
Take A Test Drive
Yes, it is important to take a test drive before renting a vehicle. You can find out if the car you are looking at is too big or too small for you, if the steering wheel is awkward, or if the seat height adjusts to your height. To make sure you rent the right car, it’s best to take a test drive before signing any rental agreement. It will allow you to make sure that you feel safe and secure in your new vehicle. The car also needs to have enough space for you and your luggage. You should ensure that the car has enough trunk space, as it would be hard to transport luggage in a smaller vehicle.
