If you’ve been traveling long enough you might remember the days when you could smoke on an airplane, but of course those days are long gone (at least in the United States and Canada) and now smoking bans have spread to restaurants, hotels and rental cars. So if you are renting a car at RentaCarNow.com, you might be wondering whether you can smoke in the car, or on the flip side, you might be looking for a smoke-free car. The policies related to smoking vary widely by rental car company and even by location within the same rental car company, but here are a few things to remember.
When you pick up your rental car, make sure it’s one that fits your smoking needs. If you have a smoke-free car, it will usually have a sticker on the window, dashboard or keychain. Just remember that if you (or someone else) smokes in a smoke-free car, you could be charged a hefty cleaning fee, sometimes as much as $250. If you do want to smoke in your rental car, it’s a good idea to check with the vendor before you arrive, and then make sure you request a smoking car at the rental counter.
