What You Should Know Before Hiring a Car for Long Trips

Summer has arrived, and you have already spent your time planning the upcoming road trip to even the most trivial details. Whether it is to see a relative for a romantic excursion with your loved one, hiring a vehicle is the ideal choice against your travel requirements. In this write-up, we’ll be sharing with you some useful tips to choose a rental car for your long road trip. 

What You Should Know Before Hiring a Car for Long Trips

Understand Your Travel Requirements

At Al Emad Car Rental, we boast a rental inventory featuring more than 300+ vehicles, which includes economy cars, SUVs, and hatchbacks. While choosing a rental car for the road trip, be sure to go with an option that will satisfy the needs of the entire excursion. For example, if you are traveling as a family, then an SUV can more or less adapt to any of your travel requirements. Some of the critical factors that you should take into consideration are the required boot space within the vehicle, the type of transmission you prefer – automatic or manual, and the kind of amenities that you require within the car. By identifying your exact needs, finding a rental car that can service them will not be a problem.

The Rental Plan

Aside from the extensive range of vehicles that we offer, we also provide our customers with a choice between daily, weekly, and monthly rental plans. Choose a plan that suits your travel plan. If you are planning a trip that will take more than a month or more, we also have long-term rental plans to cater to your requirements.

Insurance Plan

Choose to add insurance to your car rental plan to better protect yourself financially against accidents and other unfortunate incidents. At Al Emad Cars, we offer 100% insurance coverage to individuals above the age of 25 and 80% insurance coverage for those in between 22-25 years of age. 

Insurance Plan

Set Your Mileage Limits

Most car rental companies will mandate a specific daily or monthly mileage limit against their rental vehicle. At Al Emad Car Rentals, we offer a generous daily mileage limit of 200KM per day and 4500 KM per month. For every kilometer exceeding the mileage limit, the renter will be required to pay a minimal amount as extra charges.

Roadside Assistance

You should only hire from a car rental company that can service your requirements as and when you need them. Make it a point to note whether your car rental provider does provide emergency roadside assistance. We offer 24/7 emergency roadside assistance, and on-call support to all our customers, irrespective of their rental period or vehicle of choice.

Terms and Conditions Do Apply

Before signing on the dotted line, be sure to go through the fine print carefully. Doing so will not only help bring to your attention the rates and conditions regarding mileage limit, rules regarding additional drivers, and fuel and refuel strategies, but it will also help in warding off hidden charges and clauses in the contract. We here at Al Emad Car Rentals are transparent in our operations and, as such, advise all our clients to read through the contract carefully.
