Holiday Car Rental Tips to help you hit the road!
CHOOSE THE RIGHT VEHICLE:Before choosing a vehicle, there are a few things you should think about. Am I travelling with Kids? Will we have lots of luggage? If this is the case you would probably look at choosing one of our SUV rental vehicles, which can handle the whole family. On the other hand, if it's a romantic getaway for two, you may want a smaller car that uses less fuel, but still gives you the comfort you need. Whatever the situation, size really does matter!
PRE-AUTHORISE YOUR CREDIT CARD:Use our Manage My Booking tool on our website to pre-authorise your credit card, so you can minimise your time in the branch when picking up your car. No hassle. No fuss.
BOOK EARLY:Due to December being peak season, inventory at our popular holiday destinations get booked up pretty quickly. So, if you want the ideal vehicle for your holiday, book now.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF INLAND RENTAL RATES:Since most people head to the coast during the December Holidays, our inland branches are left with lots of inventory. So, if you are skipping the beach this holiday and heading inland instead, be sure to take advantage of the large choice of vehicles and the low rates.
MAKE YOUR JOURNEY MORE COMFORTABLE:We have a number of added extras that you can rent along with your car to make your journey more comfortable. These include:
- • Baby/child seat
- • GPS
- • Fire Extinguisher
- • Trailer
- • Windscreen Damage Waiver
- • Tyre Damage Waiver
USE OUR SELF-SERVICE TECHNOLOGY:First Car Rental has introduced Self-Service technology into our branches to speed up the rental process for our valued customers. Now, customers can check out quicker than ever with minimal queueing and paperwork. However, there still may be some hold-ups during the manic December holidays. So, we would appreciate your patience. To find out more about our revolutionary Self-Service, visit: https://www.firstcarrental.co.za/news/guide-self-service-car-hire-south-africa.html
