You have to assume the worst outcome, and cover all eventualities.
You Ask: What Measures Can I Take to Prevent Loss?
Good question and it begins with good old common sense:
- Study your RA carefully before accepting
- Request clarification when you don’t understand
- Drive carefully and defensively over the hire period
- Don’t leave your rental wheels unattended in dubious places
- Honor the conditions of your Rental Agreement, which includes driving soberly
It really is a no-brainer. You are fully responsible when driving your auto rental once you have signed your rights away, which leaves you – as the renter – in the firing line if anything goes wrong on your watch. After all, how would you care for your private vehicle back home? Bonzah suggests you take the same pride with your rental auto.
