Whether you are on a vacation or a business trip, you want to do whatever you can to minimize the chances of unexpected headaches or problems. One easy way to do that is to always ask for an extra key when you pick up your rental car. Although this isn’t always an option depending on the location and rental car company, it’s always a good idea to at least ask. Even if you are not the kind of person that locks their keys in the car or misplaces them easily, either of those situations are far more likely to happen when you are driving an unfamiliar car.
If you are traveling with someone else, it’s a good idea to let them hang on to the extra key, or if you are traveling alone, tuck the extra key somewhere that’s easy to access, like in your carry-on luggage. Even though you are not likely to ever need it, you’ll be glad you have it if you do somehow lock yourself out of the car. It’s also handy to have an extra set if there’s going to be more than one driver during the rental period, so that you don’t get into the classic case of “I thought you had the keys.” We hope this little tip gives you some extra peace of mind when you rent a car from RentACarNow.com.
