Renting a car and that too from an airport is not as easy a job as it appears to be. Rather I’d say that renting a car from an airport for your stay at a particular place is more difficult than the travelling itself. One who has no experience of renting cars might believe that renting a car would be as easy as a pie and all that they’d have to do would be to make a call, choose a vehicle and bam their job is done. Well if you really are new to renting cars for travelling, then you really are in for a surprise.
Firstly wherever you are travelling, any country, city or continent you are heading to would have hundreds of different rental car airport services, all claiming that their service is the best. Every car rental service would promise that they would give you the most convenient mean of travelling for your stay and they genuinely care about you and your safety. It can be generalized that all of such companies and their claims are lies, but generally renting a car from most of services is a headache involving filling out of lengthy forms. So the best that you can do is not to buy everything any random company says and to search well before choosing the company you would want to hire your car from. Secondly once you’ve decided what rental car airport company, choosing the right kind of vehicle is also equally important. But that of course depends on your situation entirely. The distance you might want to travel and the length of time you might want to rent the car are two such factors which will come into play when you are deciding upon the vehicle of your choice.
Most rental car services that you’d find in airports are large franchises that have services available all over the world. If travelling to another country, it is highly advisable to select one of such international franchises than selecting any from the local rental car airport services of that area, as the international chains are relatively more dependable. Although the prices these international companies offer are very high and their terms are quite tight and so are their security demands, but their services are usually excellent so one can compromise there. If still you are so bent on going for a local company then its better if you do your research before hand. There are certain companies which have usually never failed their customers, one such company is the Enterprise. If travelling to states, you wouldn’t find a better company. They offer the best rental car airport services along with the most economical prices. Other good companies when travelling in US are Avia, Hertz, Dollar and National.
