Questions to Ask Yourself

There are several questions that you first need to ask yourself before you choose your next rental car. Determining your needs ahead of time will expedite the whole rental process so that you can get the keys and get on the road as fast as possible.

  1. How Much Space Do I Need?

This question is essential for deciding between a small vehicle like a sedan and a larger vehicle like an SUV or passenger van.

If you’re carting around the whole family and all of your cargo, it’s best to consider a larger vehicle. However, if you’re heading out of town for a business trip by yourself, a sedan or coupe could be the right choice.

  1. Do I Need Towing Capability?

Another factor to consider when choosing your rental car is capability. If you need to move a lot of cargo or even a trailer, you’ll want to opt for a high-power SUV or a pickup truck. Be sure to ask the rental team for details.

  1. What Kind of Features Do I Want?

Depending on where you’re going and who you’re going with, you may need certain features inside your next rental vehicle.

If you’re traveling during the winter, you may want heated seats. If you’re away on business and want to keep in touch with the family, you’ll want to opt for a rental vehicle that offers Bluetooth® wireless connectivity.

Questions to Ask at the Counter

Once you have your core credentials figured out, it’s time to head to the rental counter to speak with a professional. Here, you’ll want to ask several additional questions…

  1. Are There Any Mileage Restrictions I Should Know About?

Sometimes a rental company will limit the number of miles you drive or places that you can go to in your rental car.

For example, we at Sussman Car Rentals ask that our customers refrain from driving our vehicles into Manhattan, NY, because of certain restrictions. However, you can drive as many miles as you’d like anywhere else.

  1. What’s the Return Process for My Rental Car?

Many car rental companies ask that you fill the tank with as much fuel as there was in it when you first picked up the vehicle. They may also ask you to park the vehicle in a specific part of the lot when you return it to the rental center.
