Renting a luxury car is simple, whether for a special occasion, short-term rental period or for over the long term. Follow these easy steps to ensure that you meet with all the necessary requirements:
1. Who Will Be Driving The Luxury Vehicle?
If you will be driving the car, you will need to have a valid driver’s licence as well as a credit card to make the necessary payment. If another person will be driving, their driver’s licence will be required, however payment can be made with your credit card. In the second case, it will be necessary to determine who will be responsible for any damage to the vehicle, you or the driver.
Alternatively, you can find out if the luxury rental car agency can provide you with a driver or chauffeur. Be aware that many luxury rental agencies will not hire vehicles to driver’s under the age of 25 years.
2. The Rental Contract
You will be required to complete and sign a rental agreement. Be sure to read the terms and conditions of the agreement carefully. Once you have signed to agreement, you will have to fulfill certain obligations. If you cancel for any reason whatsoever, you may be required to pay a fee.
Liability insurance is a requirement for any driver in the United States and Los Angeles. Additional insurance is optional for most car hire options but should be a priority for luxury car rental. Insurance should cover the cost of any damage to the vehicle as well as theft. Remember to include the cost of your insurance into the total payment for the luxury car hire.
4. Date And Time
It is highly recommended to reserve a luxury car that meets with your specific requirements as far in advance as possible, especially if it is for a special occasion. Take into account peak hiring times which could be during prom season or springtime which is a popular time for weddings. Holidays are another time when luxury cars may be in greater demand.
5. The Cost
It may be a good idea to compare rental rates from different agencies in order to ensure that you are getting the best deal. Although there is an average rate that is charged by most car rental agencies, in the luxury car industry, the rates may vary greatly from one provider to another.
Remember to take into account all the factors that may affect the cost such as insurance, a driver if required and any additional benefits that you may be receiving. If you are renting a luxury car on a budget, it may be necessary to forego some of the optional extras in order to make the rental more affordable.
Keep in mind that you can book a luxury rental car online or over the phone and that you don’t have to go in person to the rental agency. However, it is recommended that you make a stop at the agency you choose so that you can check out the different luxury cars that are available to make the best choice to meet your requirements.
