When you visit RentaCarNow.com, your first priority is probably to save money on your next rental car reservation. We are ready to help you do just that, but we also want to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable trip, whether you are taking a family vacation or heading out for a business meeting. For whatever reason, travelers tend to let their guard down a little when they are away from home so it’s important to remember a few basic safety tips when you pick up your rental car.
First, take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with and test all the features of your rental car. Find the switch for the windshield wipers and fluid, the headlights, turn signals and locks. Also don’t forget to check where to push for the horn – you’ll be surprised to find it’s not always in the middle of the steering wheel. Also take a minute to check out a map or review the directions leaving the rental car lot so that you can concentrate on driving. It’s also a good idea to make sure you have your cell phone within easy reach, so that if you do get lost you won’t be digging through your baggage looking for your phone. By taking a few minutes to think about safety before you leave the rental car lot you will greatly increase the chances of having a safe and enjoyable trip.
