Excited for that much awaited and very well deserved vacation with your loved ones? You’re all geared up for that trip, such as the food, itinerary and lodging. To ensure comfort during travel, transportation has likewise been planned for already by renting a vehicle. But more importantly, in order to ensure that you have continuous fun and enjoyment while on the road, it’s best to be equipped with these safety travel reminders.
1. Availing the services of a car renting company involves choosing a car from its roster of vehicles for rent. Your choice of car to rent must depend on where you feel most comfortable with. Consider also the number of passengers so as to help you determine the size of the vehicle to get and needless to say, the type of transmission it features.
2. Opt for manual transmission (M/T) cars if you want to have more control over the car. It’s more economical since it uses less fuel. However, if you feel you want to have an easier time, then opt for the automatic transmission (A/T) type.
3. The sedan type is a good choice if there are only up to 4 passengers and if it is just a short trip with just a few things to bring. But for a week-long vacation, consider leasing a van or a multi-purpose vehicle so that all of your belongings can fit with no trouble at all. Before leaving the car rental premises, remember to first put all of your things in the trunk.
5. If you are traveling with small children or a baby, make sure to bring with you a child booster seat or an infant car seat to guarantee the child’s safety while on the road. If this is not possible, notify the car rental firm in advance and request for one. Some companies would normally not charge additional fees for a child car seat, but be prepared with a little amount of money just in case you get billed for this.
Traveling with happy and content children is truly a blessing, so keep them very well entertained especially for long trips. To keep them busy, bring along with you their favorite books, play things, art supplies and movie videos and stash them in an easy to carry bag.
