Good to know about renting a car

I know many people have had issues with renting cars. Here are a few "good to knows" if you are renting a car:

  • Always inspect the car, and note any damage of any kind. Even if its a very small scratch or ding, you must note it. I would recommend taking a pic with your cell phone too. If you don't note the damage they may pin it on you when you return he car.
  • If you use your credit card to pay for your rental car, most cards offer free Auto rental collision and theft coverage. Meaning you don't need to buy the expensive insurance from the rental agency. In fact if you buy the insurance most times it invalidates your cards free coverage. Always check with your auto insurance company to make sure your covered.
  • Always return your car with a full tank, or they may charge you huge amounts for each gallon.
  • Check out the FTC's site on renting cars:
