RETURNING YOUR RENTAL CAR: 5 TIPS FOR RETURN


Your vacation is coming to an end, the trip is coming to an end, and you will shortly be returning your rental car. So that the return is, as in most cases, a simple formality to accomplish, we are going to give you some indications and five valuable tips to follow.

 Before returning a rental car: some precautions

First of all,  have your rental contract with you. It will be requested from you by the agency when returning the rental car, even before proceeding with the usual checks. So keep this precious document close at hand!
Where to return the rental vehicle?   You have the option of returning the vehicle to the agency where you borrowed it or to another. In all cases, this is indicated in the contract and therefore stipulated upstream of the rental.
Be punctual!  The return of your rental car must be done on time! If you are late or if you do not keep the appointment, you risk penalties. Be aware that you usually have a delay tolerance of 59 minutes. Remember to allow a little margin in your schedule to refuel.
 Our advice:  If you have an unforeseen event and think you will be late for the return of the vehicle, do not hesitate to contact the rental agency.
 
Note:   The car remains under your responsibility as long as it is not returned. The return is official once the keys have been given to the lessor and the inventory has been carried out.
 

Five tips for a proper rental vehicle return

 1) Vehicle condition

You must return the vehicle without damage or damage. Use the notes and any photos taken when handing over the keys. This will avoid any dispute with the lessor.
 

2) Cleanliness of the interior of the vehicle

 Make sure you return the rental car in the same state of internal cleanliness as when you collected the keys. This will prevent you from incurring any cleaning costs.
Tip:  Before returning the vehicle, stop by an automatic car wash to quickly vacuum the passenger compartment  (especially if you are bringing some sand from your vacation).
 

 3) Fuel

You must return the vehicle in the same condition it was loaned to you, and this also applies to the fuel gauge. You will be charged additional fees if you return the car without refueling. They correspond to the fuel necessary to reach the initial level, to which is often added a so-called filling charge.
 

 4) Mileage

 Check that the kilometers traveled correspond to those included in your contract. If you have driven beyond the expected mileage, additional km billing will be applied.
 

 5) Return of additional equipment

 These include the radio, GPS, child car seat, or booster. Remember to return the rental vehicle with all the equipment loaned or rented by the agency.
 And at the same time, don't forget to collect your own things!
Returning a rental car is relatively quick and easy. It will be even more so if you prepare it by checking these 5 points well and by taking a little margin on your arrival time.
