Posted by Cretarent on March 17th, 2020

Whether you are planning to rent a car for the first time or you have rented cars before, there are certain essential things that you should always keep in mind. These things are crucial for everyone. So, continue reading to know what those things are.

Paperwork is Necessary

Imagine reaching Greece with full excitement and arriving at your favorite company of car rental Heraklion, Crete ,  Chania or other places only to realize that you have forgotten your driver’s license at home. What a pitiful sight it will be! It would be best if you had all your car-related paperwork ready before you walk out of the house or hotel room. Double-check if all the paperwork is ready. Most of the car rental companies will require a valid credit card as well, ensure that you have a working credit card also.

Look For Car’s Exterior

Before renting a car, and driving like a king of the road, you should first check both the interiors and exteriors of the vehicle. What if the car company charges you for damage that was caused by someone else? Always be on the safer side. Please take a look at the car properly before hiring it.

Time to Get Familiar With The Rental Car

In case the vehicle you are hiring is different than the one you have, then you might want to become familiar with how the car works. For example, you would want to adjust the seat and the mirror as per your perusal. Check if the AC is working fine, how about the windshield wipers, lights, and is the handbrake is in working condition or not.


Before renting the car, you may also want to ask the car leasing company about the kind of fuel your rental car will be needing. You would surely not want your car to run out of gas in the middle of nowhere.

Hire a rental car from a company that you can trust, and that is always there for its customers in case you need them. Also, make sure to return the rental car on time, because the car rental companies will charge you if you cross the promised time.
