Optional Extras to Hire with your Rental Car

When renting a car, there are several optional extras that you can consider hiring to enhance your driving experience or meet specific needs. The availability of these extras may vary depending on the rental company and location, but here are some common options.

GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEM

If your rental car doesn’t come with built-in navigation, you can hire a GPS system to help you navigate unfamiliar roads and find your destinations easily.

CHILD SEATS

If you’re travelling with young children, you can rent child seats suitable for their age and size. There are different types available, such as infant seats, toddler seats, and booster seats.

ADDITIONAL DRIVER

You can add another driver to the rental agreement if you plan to share the driving responsibilities. This is especially useful for long journeys or when multiple people will be driving during the rental period.

PORTABLE WI-FI HOTSPOT

Renting a portable Wi-Fi device allows you to stay connected during your travels, providing internet access for your smartphones, tablets, or laptops.

ROOF RACK OR LUGGAGE CARRIER

If you need extra storage space for bulky items like skis, snowboards, or large suitcases, you can rent a roof rack or luggage carrier attachment for your rental car.

FUEL OPTIONS

Some rental companies offer packages that allow you to prepay for a full fuel tank at a discounted rate. This can be convenient if you’re unsure about finding a gas station near the drop-off location.

INSURANCE COVERAGE

While not necessarily an extra, you may have the option to purchase additional insurance coverage for your rental car, such as a collision damage waiver (CDW) or personal accident insurance.

Remember to consider your specific needs and the costs associated with each extra when deciding which ones to hire. It’s also good to check the rental company’s terms and conditions regarding these extras, including any age restrictions or additional fees.
